A young gay man from Ghana struggles to reconcile his love for his mother with his sexuality through a series of letters in this deceptively simple yet powerful piece.

Program

Male Ga(y)ze

This Gay!La presentation explores the many definitions, struggles and pleasures of what it means to be a gay man.  From stories of friendship to companionship, acceptance to guilt, discovery to saying good-bye, and even a little country music, this cross-section serves as a reminder that a rainbow is not a flag but a diverse spectrum.
