On the day of the 2015 SCOTUS decision, Garrison, an environmental lobbyist, and his partner Nate, an editor, are working through a critical turning point of their own.
Asabi Oke: “Out Of Culture”
When nerves and truth collide sometimes you get a different type of reality.
Brittany Alyse Willis – “Son Of Apollo”

John Bavaso: “Plus One”
Shari’s thrilled to have her new girlfriend, Deanna, as her guest to her cousin’s wedding… that is, until Deanna throws an unexpected punch during the reception.
Xemiyulu Manibusan Tapepechul – “Protect & Preserve”
After the murder of a Two-Spirit Trans Womxn, her lover, and fellow Two-Spirit, Apanpiltzin is unable to find healing. She is haunted by her very real fear of being murdered for being a Trans Womxn of Color. This short play is a tribute to the missing and murdered Indigenous Womxn of the American continent, and is in solidarity with all the Trans Womxn and Femmes of Color who have been murdered for daring to exist.

Two family pariahs reconnect on an interstate drive, and discuss sexuality, family and mental illness.
