Mission + History



Founded in 2008, Queer Rebel Productions showcases queer artists of color, connects generations, and honors our histories with art for the future.


Queer Rebel Productions asserts the presence and critical contributions of Queer People of Color. The production company emerged out of Kali Boyce’s solo performances as TuffNStuff, Drag King of the Blues. TuffNStuff evokes the spirit of cross-dressing Blues performers, paying homage to African American and Indigenous legacies of resistance through art. Co-directors KB Boyce and Celeste Chan see the past and experience of our queer ancestors as absolutely vital to informing our future.
