Uprising is one of the first theatre companies in the United States (maybe even the world) that centers the stories of transgender and nonbinary artists!

Our mission is simple: To increase access in theatre at all levels for transgender and nonbinary artists AND to make sure that every trans youth has a supportive adult in their life.

“I have had the privilege of working with Uprising on 3 different shows. There’s a reason I keep coming back: Uprising’s mission statement isn’t words, it’s an action they actually believe and follow through on. Their continued commitment to proper representation on stage – specifically trans representation – and development opportunities for trans actors and playwrights is almost unmatched.”

Actor Jeff Miller

We run with very little overhead which means your support goes far! Donations help to pay artists, offer scholarships for youth who can’t afford to participate in our educational initiatives, and to making sure that trans voices are centered in the making of art.
