"Anything outside of what we standardize or traditionalize in mainstream culture. So people who are different, things that are different, ideas that are different, philosophies that are difference, beliefs that are different. Anything outside of this 'generic box'. Unfortunately, throughout society its come with a confusing connotation, a shaky connotation, especially from where I come from, a partially conservative family. It's really rewarding to live in a city that accepts and embraces this definition of living outside of normalcy and tradition."
"Most definitely! [Baltimore] offers an underground scene that is just starting to come up from the ground. What I think is queer also, is a tree, so if you slice a tree and you see the rings, theres mainstream culture. Queer then comes out of that, not just a rebellion but a movement. Baltimore is in the midst of that movement
and very accepting of that movement."
"Theatre being an environment where there is a lot of freedom, there are voices that are coming out. [Theatre in Baltimore] offers a space where we can explore these ideas and this movement, and these rings that are radiating out from mainstream culture. Not just a rebellion, but a new voice and a new way of thinking about things and a new language. [Queer Theatre] is about creating characters and situations and promoting new ideas about what it means to be different, to be a human living outside of the box."
