It’s no secret, The Qu LOVES Kickstarter Projects. We especially love ones that come out of Chicago! About Face Youth Theatre is amazing and they need your help! Please give generously!
About Face Youth Theatre (AFYT), a group of dynamic and diverse young people and teaching artists, have spent the past two years working with the community to create the play WHAT’S THE T. Now we need your support to make this ambitious world premiere a reality!
Get an introduction to WHAT’S THE T in the video above as ensemble members talk about and show us where they feel safest in the community.
The play follows internet personality / trans activist / fierce community leader Ms. Ma as she uses her YouTube page to create community, live her glamour, and spread the good word about queer safe space in Chicago. WHAT’S THE T tells the story of Ms. Ma’s tangled web of connections, her struggle to stay positive, and what happens to her community when she disappears. Inspired by issues of race, gender, age, and class in the queer friendly neighborhood of Boystown, WHAT’S THE T is based on true stories and interviews from LGBTQA (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and allied) young folks in and around Chicago.
