BENEFITING: Theater Offensive, Inc.

EVENT: 2016 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 18, 2016

THE STORY:

The Theater Offensive’s mission is to present the diversity of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender lives in art so bold it breaks through personal isolation, challenges the status quo, and builds thriving communities. For over 25 years, our OUT In Your Neighborhood programming reflects the diversity of the city of Boston, gives voice to underserved LGBT community members, creates avenues for cross-cultural dialogue, and breaks down the barriers of homophobia, bigotry and hate.

True Colors: Out Youth Theater is the longest running program of The Theater Offensive and the oldest LGBT youth theater in the United States. True Colors uses a proven community-engaged theater model to train and motivate LGBTQ and allied youth leaders, the majority of whom are ages 14-22 from Boston neighborhoods. True Colors transforms real-life stories of queer youth in powerful performances and workshops to fight bigotry, hate, and discrimination. The personal stories of the youth are based on their lived experiences, including: bullying, homelessness, coming out, and discrimination. Throughout the program, youth receive high quality theater training, leadership development, and performance opportunities across the greater Boston area.

True Colors creates a safe space where LGBT youth and their allies are challenged and supported to engage fully in their personal, social, and artistic development.

For youth participants, True Colors is life-changing and often times life-saving.
• 2 in 5 youth are currently or have been homeless
• 67% of youth live in neighborhoods facing violence
• 65% are youth of color
• 65% are from low-income families

Your gift not only expands True Colors’ capacity, but it highlights your commitment to youth enrichment and development in our most vulnerable communities.
- 90% of youth going through the program envision successful options for their future!
