Queer Futures offers a platform to critically reflect on contemporary queer theatre and performance research from across the world.
Queer Futures held its first formal meeting in 2010. The working group considers the queer subjects, issues, theories and methods that our international network of researchers and practitioners are currently engaging with.

Queer Futures meets annually at the IFTR Conference. We accept a variety of submissions including papers, performance presentations and provocations. In addition to the annual conference theme, we are guided by questions such as
- What issues and practices are of current concern to queer scholarship?
- How does queer research differ in different cultural contexts?
