Oscar Oliveira Soens - Greater Boston PFLAG
We are a group of parents, families, friends, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people. We help change attitudes and create an environment of understanding so that our LGBTQ family members and friends can live in a world that is safe and inclusive. We accomplish this through support, education, and advocacy. www.gbpflag.org
The Laramie Project is a production about how a community was impacted by the attack and death of a young gay man, Matthew Shepard in 1998. WCT is offering community programs in association with our production to help our community to continue to build our support of LGBTQ+ individuals within WCT, MCA and the greater surrounding community.
This program was made possible by the Dinah Lane Theatre Arts Fund.
