Gay Play

May 29, 2012

I went to a play today, which is already cool. However, this play was performed by people who belong to a gay community center. It was written by them and inspired by their lives, which were, for the most part, pretty harsh. One guy (who considers himself a girl- excuse me for not getting the terminology right) was kicked out of the house and lives on the streets, another lost his whole family once he came out. I can’t imagine what it’s like to expose yourself like this on stage, in front of complete strangers, but they all spoke of how helpful the process has been for them. Well, drama-therapy it is, then.
