The Queer New York International Arts Festival (QNYIA) was created to expand the parameters of reading all that queer performance can be and mean. The concept proposes a reinvented definition of queer that can serve as a wider platform for excellence in the arts, one that is capable of tracking, discovering, and interpreting new trends. In addition to challenging societal norms and artistic practices, the festival repositions queerness by presenting artists whose work deals not only with gender and identity (i.e., expected queer issues), but with a wider range of personal, social, and aesthetic phenomena inside this new container for otherness.

Festival was founded by Zvonimir Dobrović and André von Ah and the festival is dedicated to the memory of André von Ah (March 20, 1987 – September 11, 2013), co-founder and curator of QNYIA. A research and development grant supporting queer art has been established in his name.
