About Pride Films and Plays

With gay issues still so complex in this country, Pride Films and Plays was founded in 2010 to change lives by improving the quality of LGBT theater and film for this generation and those to come. Utilizing stories with gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender characters or themes, we create powerful theatrics and films that speak for the community and are essential viewing for all audiences.

We accomplish this mission through a season of Jeff eligible productions, film screenings, and special events like TransFest and LezFest designed to bring attention to underserved artists and audiences.

Huffington Post in 2015 called PFP, a Chicago Gay Theatre: “A powerful and empowering entity.”
