What does it mean to be queer and homeless during a pandemic? “Miscreant Gnomes & Other Charlatans” examines the intersection between the under-housed and those who live, work and play within the confines of Toronto’s queer community. 

Meaningful, relevant and raw, this experimental performance piece is an attempt to dismantle what is behind the “us versus them” mentality that has become so pervasive during the pandemic.
