The Theater Offensive’s OUT in Your Neighborhood strategy is a driving force behind Fierce Love, focusing on integrating queer theater into interactive community-based programs in Boston-area neighborhoods.

The Theater Offensive’s ongoing Shout it OUT! collaboration with Hispanic Black Gay Coalition (HBGC Boston) will open Fierce Love’s Saturday matinee. Shout it OUT! will be a staged reading of original coming out stories from LGBT people of color. This work was developed in two workshop series with The Theater Offensive staff and Brian Freeman, in which community members learned to stage their writings for a broader audience.

The Paul Robeson Project

Ever heard of Paul Robeson?

He is an internationally renowned and celebrated actor, athlete, lawyer, singer and activist.  Yet, he is all but erased from mainstream US history. Paul Robeson is pre Civil Rights Movement and smack dab Jim Crow and McCarthyism. Despite these obstacles, he achieves highly.  Despite being a high achiever, human flaws arise…

This lecture demonstration about Paul Robeson by “Paul” shares his history, experiences, and what elements make up his particular brand of icon.

“Where My Girls At?”

“Where My Girls At?” is a “thoughtful, provocative, and insanely funny” one woman show written and performed by the “multi-talented” Micia Mosely. Portraying five drastically different characters representing the diversity of Black lesbian experiences, Micia challenges the notion that there is only one way to be Black or queer in the 21st century. A phenomenal one hour performance steeped in improv and audience participation, Where My Girls At? has thrilled audiences across the country from San Francisco, Detroit and New York to Amherst, Chapel Hill and Honolulu. A New York Innovative Theater Award Nominee, the show, while hilarious, continues to tackle difficult issues including inter and intra-group racism, sexism, and homophobia.
