The Neo-Futurists' TMLMTBGB to Present 30 QUEER PLAYS IN 60 STRAIGHT MINUTES, 6/27-29
The Neo-Futurists present their annual Pride Weekend benefit: 30 Queer Plays in 60 Straight Minutes, a special edition of Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind: 30 Plays in 60 Minutes that combines queer and gender binary-smashing plays from the past with new work to benefit and support local LGBTQ organizations. The 2014 beneficiary is Project Fierce (projectfiercechicago.org).
Project Fierce Chicago is a volunteer-run organization made up of community members, social workers, psychologists and allies who aim to reduce LGBTQ youth homelessness in Chicago by providing affirming transitional housing and support services to homeless LGBTQ young adults.
Two ways to help Project Fierce:
First, attend a show during Pride weekend where your $20 ticket price on Thursday and your pass-the-hat donation on Friday, Saturday or Sunday goes toward housing and support services for LGBTQ youth seeking a stable housing environment.
Second, donate to Project Fierce when you attend the Neo-Futurist Prime Time show, Haymaker, during the same weekend (June 27-29).
One more thing! The Neo-Futurists will participate in Chicago Dyke Mark on Saturday, June 28th in Humboldt Park. Come out and help celebrate the visibility of your queer and gender-nonconforming neighbors! More info here: chicagodykemarch.wordpress.com.
