In this workshop, queer youth are handed the mic to create a 30-minute podcast episode, ‘Queer on the Cape,’ to be included in The Future Perfect Project Podcast, I’m Feeling Queer Today! Through a series of group discussions, team building exercises, and writing prompts, participants will conduct, record, and edit audio stories about their experience being LGBTQIA+ while living on Cape Cod. No experience required.
This workshop is open only to people from the ages of 16-22 who identify as LGBTQIA+ and who live year-round on Cape Cod.
What Is “Queer”? The Future Perfect Project uses the word “Queer” as an umbrella term for the LGBTQIA+ alphabet, which includes anyone who feels marginalized due to their expression or the repression of their gender and sexual identities.
As queer author, bell hooks, describes it: “…’Queer’ as being about the self that is at odds with everything around it and that has to invent and create and find a place to speak and to thrive and to live.”
Maximum enrollment is 12. People under 18 can only participate with parental/guardian written permission. This workshop is free. There will be no on-site housing available to participants in this workshop. Transportation will be provided for all participants.
This is a rigorous workshop that will meet from 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM from Monday to Friday. There will also be a series of seven 1-hour preparatory Zoom meetings in the weeks leading up to the workshop, as well as a series of six 1-hour Zoom meetings following the workshop to edit and finalize the episode.
Bring a computer and/or a smartphone.

The Future Perfect Project envisions a world where every young person feels safe, seen, and celebrated in their home and community. We believe the self-expression of LGBTQIA+ youth is a declaration of a better future for us all. We amplify in three ways: facilitating spaces and artistic opportunities (online and in-person) where queer youth create honest work, utilizing our resources to produce the work they create, and broadcasting it to a wider audience. To amplify queer young voices, we produce and facilitate creative workshops, media projects, and live performances of original work created by and about the current generation of LGBTQIA+ youth.
