The National Day of Silence (observed elsewhere on April 11th) is a day where supporters of the LGBTQA community take a vow of silence (for a minute, an hour, or the whole day) to raise awareness about anti-LGBTQ bias, discrimination, and violence.

Look for representatives from the Center for Sexualities and Gender Diversity, and the Queer Straight Alliance, to be sharing information and opportunities for you to participate!

The Out & Allied project has produced two anthologies of writings by LGBTQ and Allied youth on their experiences, leadership, faith-based advocacy, and true dialogue.  Join us for this performance of pieces in celebration of the second anthology.

This presentation is being organized by USM student, and Add Verb Productions Intern, Caroline O'Connor.

Wednesday, April 9
7:30pm
Woodbury Campus Center Amphitheater.
Free and open to the public
RSVP on our Facebook Event at: https://www.facebook.com/events/662487353808000/

 

Vol 2 (Jan 1014) joins The Out & Allied Anthology series featuring 46 royalty free plays, poems and music. It includes a handbook with guidelines and suggestions for using theater for faith-based dialogue, facilitating youth leadership, and social change. The two volumes are designed to be used as a resource for staging performances and bringing to light the stories of LGBTQ youth. Through all of Add Verb’s work, we use the power of performance to communicate and educate and hope that these anthologies will inspire others to do the same.  FMI: http://www.addverbproductions.org/programs/outallied/

We've made the tough decision to cancel (or, hopefully, postpone) the show. There are a number of reasons for this (fewer performers/performances than we'd like, lower audience interest than we'd hope, etc.). This has been a very tough semester for many folks, and we feel that everyone's energy should be turned to taking care of ourselves, one another, and successfully completing the spring semester.

We love the idea of the show, and are hopeful that we can try this again in the near future.

Please make a point of supporting Portland's Burlesque scene, there are some amazing performers in our community!

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Sarah Holmes at: sholmes@usm.maine.edu or (207) 780-5767.

 

Join USM Center for Sexualities and Gender Diversity and our host with the most, Rosie Rimjob, for an evening of burlesque, performed by our amazing students and community.
