July 26-29
Boston, MA
Hosted by
The Theater Offensive

The third annual PYTA Conference was held at the Boston Center for the Arts, hosted by The Theater Offensive and the Summer Troupe of True Colors: OUT Youth Theater. For the first time, the Mukti Fund invited representatives from three new incubator programs to join the annual gathering and meet with potential mentors to learn best practices in program development and youth leadership.


True Colors: Out Youth Theater programs use a proven community-based theater approach to train and activate lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and allied youth leaders. The Theater Offensive works with youth leaders to develop comprehensive True Colors programming that engages each participant deeply in our mission through the following program areas: — True Colors Troupe engages youth of all experience levels in year-round theatre training to create, produce and tour original shows to schools, community groups and social service agencies. — True Colors Studio offers youth a full range of workshops and advanced theatrical training opportunities that build proficiency in theatre-related skills. — True Colors Creative Action Crew is an ensemble of experienced youth leaders who deliver workshops and performances to expand the reach of True Colors. — True Colors Leadership and Inclusion Council is a group of peer-elected youth leaders that guides The Theater Offensive on youth-related matters and program development.
