In WHAT'S THE T, internet personality/trans activist/fierce community leader Ms. Ma uses her YouTube page to create community, live glamour, and spread the good word about queer safe spaces in Chicago. Inspired by issues of race, gender, age and class in Boystown, WHAT'S THE T incorporates true stories and interviews from LGBTQA young folks in and around Chicago. Here’s a look at the show! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w7STk0yDREA&feature=plcp
WHAT’S THE T runs August 3 & 4 at the National Museum of Mexican Art (1852 W. 19th Street). Tickets are $25 for supporters of About Face Youth Theatre, $15 General Admission, and $5 for students.
About Face Youth Theatre (AFYT) was developed in 1999 in response to the murder of Matthew Shepard as a safe space for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer young people to tell their stories and create community. AFYT is an educational program designed to engage LGBTQ youth ages 14 through 21 in theatre and leadership development.
