According to an article published by CRN Interactive, ten gay youth in Charlotte performed stories of discrimination, coming out and dealing with families. The performance was held at the Actor's Theatre of Charlotte. According to the article:
The script was created in workshop as collaboration between Fringe Benefits, a theatre education group based in Los Angeles, and Time Out Youth, a Charlotte organization offering support and emergency housing to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth. Time Out Youth provided more than 130 nights of shelter in 2005 for LGBT teenagers who were turned away by their families.
The stories in the performance were inspired by the real life experiences of LGBT teens in Charlotte. ===== uh... Can we get something like that up here in the Triad... especially in Winston-Salem, because God knows they have some issues over there when it comes to protecting LGBTQ youth.
