Come As You Are was originally created and produced by The Theater Offensive in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Inspired by the 40th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, Come As You Are aims to investigate and celebrate queer sex, the diverse range of queer sexuality and the moral values underneath. Sexual freedom and expression by LGBTQ folks were powerful causes of the Stonewall riots. Come As You Are is a national project that gives grants to theaters so that they may create their own original production about queer sex. For more information, visit www.comeasyouareonline.org.

Come As You Are is supported by the National Performance Network , Arcus Foundation, Flynn Performing Arts Center, Composition, and Theater Offensive.

Come As You Are is sponsored by Living Mosaic, Muffin Man, Saint Arnold Brewing Company, t'afia, Transgender Foundation of America, Whole Foods
