WERQ is intended to celebrate bodies that labor, that do the work society can take for granted or simply chooses to ignore. With WERQ, NOGO Arts seeks to queer a common work space while recognizing the momentous 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. While Stonewall is a historical marker, it was not the first time or the last time queer people rose up to do the work of social justice: We’ve Been Doing This Our Whole Lives.

About Us


Live Performance

NOGO Arts is always seeking work from, about, and for the LGBTQ community.
We define performance very broadly. Dance, yes. Theater, yes. Something in between, yes. A new script, yes. Performance art, yes, please. Music, yes.  If your work wants a live audience, then we probably think of it as performance.  Let us know what you're thinking about and we will be in touch.

Visual Arts

NOGO Arts wants to celebrate the work of LGBTQ artists and their allies from multiple mediums (painting, sculpture, installation, etc.).  NOGO Arts presents group shows as well as showcasing work in fully curated digital exhibitions. Recognizing that LGBTQ folks may not always produce work in traditional mediums, we want to explore different ways to get your work in front of the public. 



NOGO Arts publishes a quarterly online journal titled Apricot. In addition to supporting NOGO Arts' larger mission, Apricot seeks to blur the lines between high/low, artist/scholar, and other basic binaries. Articles, essays, and other work based in the humanities are accepted on a rolling basis. Click below for specific calls and more information .
