Queerer by the dozen!

The Mickee Faust Club presents its “Queer as Faust XII” cabaret


Tallahassee—In June 1969, drag queens, butch dykes, and street kids partying at New York City’s Stonewall Inn bar were raided by the police and arrested for the “crime” of being gay.  In a heroic act of defiance, those fabulous “criminals” rose up and fought back-- taking a stand for queer liberation that helped change the world. The Mickee Faust Club is honoring that history with its annual Queer as Faust Performance Cabaret. Now in its 12th year, Queer as Faust celebrates everything wacky, funny, poignant and fabulous about our LGBTQ+ Community. 

“It’s one of my favorite Faust events,” says the leader of the club, Mickee Faust, puffing on her/his/they’s plastic cigar.  “’Cause what could be queerer than moi-- an oversized, sexually-ambiguous, plastic-cigar puffing rat in a bra and a bow tie?”

Come join us as we celebrate our gay history and take a few jabs at those who not only want us back in the closet but put to death. And that’s no joke.  As with all Mickee Faust cabarets,  members of the Tallahassee community have written the material for the show which runs the gamut of silly to sexy to anthems of pride. Some skits might be better for more mature audiences.

Queer as Faust XII runs for two long weekends, Thursday-Saturday June 20-22 and 27-29. All shows start with preshow music in the backyard with Eclectic Acoustic at 7pm and the performances at 8pm.  Tickets are $20 for general admission; $15 for students, retirees, and people with disabilities. All shows are open captioned. The shows on Thursday are $5 cheaper across the board. The performances will take place in the air-conditioned, accessible Adelaide Schnittman Hall, the company’s black box theater, at 623 McDonnell Drive in Railroad Square. Because the Schnittman Hall is a smaller venue, buying a ticket in advance is the best idea.

Celebrate pride with the queerest and weirdest theater company in all of Florida. Share some laughs and lift a glass in honor of 50th anniversary of Stonewall.
