About Us

Raze Collective is a charity dedicated to nurturing and developing innovative queer performance in the UK.
We create cultural opportunities for LGBTQIA+ artists, audiences and the wider public. We value the diversity of the queer cultural scene and work with artists, producers and organisations who share our values and ethos.

Raze was formed by grassroots performers, producers & audience members in the face of the closure of LGBTQIA+ venues. We're called Raze as as the organisation was established in response to those queer spaces being razed.

 Artist Development 
We run regular artist development and commissioning programmes championing LGBTQIA+ performance makers working across disciplines to create dynamic new work, in whatever form that takes whether that be theatre, cabaret, dance, film, sound, or live art.

 Performance Platforms 
We host digital screenings, events and performances at venues and festivals across London and beyond, working with partners including Sink The Pink, Fringe! Queer Arts & Film Fest, London Philharmonia, The Glory, The Yard Theatre and many more!


 Sector Support 

We manage the Queer Arts Consortium, a model of shared organisational development. We also host Queer Clash Diary. An annual get together for queer-led organisations, artists, producers & community groups to share projects, plans and ideas that shape the future of London's thriving queer scene.


Raze Collective is a queer artist-led organisation. Our team works within the queer community to support queer artists.

A group of nine people stand on a stage accepting applause. They are all smiling and appear happy, with arms raised. Some are in drag, some are wearing black. A short white woman holds a violin.They are flanked by a piano and drum kit. White roses are scattered on the stage in front of then, and a small speaker faces them on the ground.
