HOW DO YOU DEFINE QUEER?

""See that's one of those things that sort of evolved over time. I think initially I tended to tie it to sexual orientation, gender identity only. But I think increasingly that sort of spread because I think people have spread it into other areas. So that it has more of a sense of being non traditional, being unorthodox, being fluid, being who you want to be and not having to conform to anything that anybody else wants or expects of you. Be that your gender identity, be that the way you dress, be that your sexual orientation, be that anything else!""

IS BALTIMORE A QUEER CITY?

"Yes. I think it has always been but it hasn't called itself that. It has called itself 'quirky' and 'eccentric' and a lot of the quirkiness and the eccentricity tended to be lodged in people whose sexual orientation or gender identity or various other things tended to be outside the 'norm'. I think increasingly we're embracing that at a deeper level as opposed to it's being something that's a little more superficial."

RELATE A 'QUEER BALTIMORE' TO THEATRE FOR US.

"This is a great town for that! We have so many new companies popping up everywhere and different people doing different things. When you get a lot of different companies, you get people thinking in innovative ways. [People] saying, 'OK, who can we incorporate into this that we haven't incorporated before?'. 'How can we do things with this that we haven't done before?' 'Can we reach out to people who are writing different things from different perspectives and incorporate their viewpoints into things in ways that haven't been done openly?" I think this is a great town for that and a great town for theatre for that."
