Celebrate Diversionary Theatre's 2018 Gala

Celebrate the third oldest LGBT theatre in the country and the resilience of our community. The event features a wild selection of songs queering the classic musical South Pacific.

Join us for an evening of fun, fantasy and fabulousness to celebrate Diversionary Theatre. Drawing opportunities, auction, fantastic food & beverages, and much, much more!

Former Diversionary Trustee and longtime supporter of the Arts in San Diego, Susan Atkins-Weathers is slated to receive the 2018 Fritz Klein Award. And the national best selling historian of the LGBT movement and celebrated author Lillian Faderman will receive the 2018 National Fritz Klein Award.

The Fritz Klein Awards honor the late Dr. Fritz Klein, longtime Diversionary supporter, Board Trustee and founder of American Institute for Bisexuality, who passed away in 2006. Previous recipients include Tom Reise for his work with California Institute of Contemporary Arts, Jim Obergefell, lead plaintiff in Obergefell V. Hodges, the landmark case legalizing gay marriage, Rob Granat and Al Mazur long time supporter of Diversionary and Actor and Director, Shana Wride.

Says event Co-Chair Paula C. Herring, "Because Diversionary continues to create an evocative and thoughtful space to the San Diego community, we are thrilled to work on this extension of fantasy with Bahia Resort for the gala gathering in April."

And Co-Chair Jerry Buckley agrees, "It's an honor to be serving with such a great committee to make Fantasy Island a very fun and exciting evening. Our extravaganza welcomes everyone who supports the vital mission of Diversionary Theatre as an LGBT cultural institution that informs, inspires and entertains our entire San Diego community. (Shoes not required!)"
