Fairy Tales Announces The Coming Out Monologues YYC as an Official Program!


After several years of successful partnerships, Fairy Tales Presentation Society is happy to announce that The Coming Out Monologues, YYC has officially become a program under the Fairy Tales Presentation Society umbrella.

Beginning in 2011, The Coming Out Monologues, YYC has provided a stage for queer and ally stories for local Calgarians. It has been an annual event that has seen audiences grow each year and continues to host sold out shows that provide the community an opportunity to celebrate the diversity in local stories. A dedicated team of volunteers, committed to creating spaces for queer and ally stories to be heard, has run the Coming Out Monologues. The decision to join under the Fairy Tales Presentation Society umbrella will mean an increased capacity and resources to continuing to do this storytelling work for the community and potential for expansion of events similar to The Coming Out Monologues. 

As we move forward together we are committed to continuing to provide spaces to share stories and create conversations around education, empathy, love and progress which strengthening our community and city.

The Coming Out Monologues is currently in production for its 2017 season, which will launch March 22nd-24th at the John Dutton Theatre. Tickets are on sale now.
