Ahoy, ye gaybies! Join Sweetbitter on a high-seas adventure full of surprises as we uncover the queer history of pirates. Gay love and even marriage were more common in the 17th-century world of pirates than we might expect, and history is full of cross-dressing, swashbuckling pirates who broke gender norms and created their own queer culture. Even Johnny Depp, in the Pirates of the Caribbean series, intentionally played Captain Jack Sparrow as a gay man.
What are the stories behind these radical rebels? And why have those stories been erased for hundreds of years now? Find out with us in this exciting season.
Join our gay pirate choir and band!
All LGBTQ+ community members and allies welcome ✨
