Queer Monologues

Queer Monologues LogoQueer Monologues Info Sessions

Spring Semester, Fridays from 1:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Born out of the need for LGBTQ spaces,  Queer Monologues is an annual student performance of monologues from the Queer community. Come with your own writing or choose from our selection of donated monologues from past performances.  Earn academic credit while learning how to strengthen your voice as a member of the LGBTQ Community.


Step 1: Attend an info Session/audition! (Required)

Come learn more about The Queer Monologues. We’ll go over purpose, history, and what the course/production involves. Auditions consist of meeting with the advisers on your own and tell us what kind of monologue you would like to do, along with a few other questions.  No prior experience with performance or writing is necessary. Everyone is welcome!

Step 2: Register for the Course!

Permission numbers will be provided after auditions.  This is a one credit, pass/fail academic course where we will explore queer history, share our own experiences, provide feedback on monologues, and reflect on our experiences as members of the LGBTQ Community.  Class participation and attendance is required. Students concerned about their ability to participate due to class enrollment are encouraged to speak with the Queer Monologues Advising team.


When is the actual performance?
Queer Monologues 2018 will be taking place on Saturday, April 14th at 2:00 p.m..  Please note, this is an event open to the public.

What if I can’t make an info session?
Email Sean Olmstead, Coordinator of the LGBTQ Resource Center, to arrange a time to meet.  You can reach him at Olmsteads@missouri.edu

What if I enroll in the course, but later decide I can’t perform my monologue on stage?
We’ve had students back out in the past, and that’s okay!  You’ll still have some obligations to help support the show, and follow through with the coursework.

So… Coursework?
Yes! Like we stated above, this is a one-credit academic class.  We’ll have some assignments as the semester goes on to get you to think about your monologues and to learn more about LGBTQ literature/stories.  Nothing outside the scope of a one-credit class.

Have more questions? Feel free to contact Sean Olmstead at Olmsteads@missouri.edu or stop by the LGBTQ Resource Center (Rm. G225 in the Student Center)
