"Black men loving black men is the revolutionary act...."
- Joseph Beam
"Our crowns have been bought and paid for...all we have to do it put them on." - James Baldwin, Novelist
The theme for this years' show is entitled "DYNASTY," which narrates the lives of Black queer men growing up in a world that can be harsh, hard and hurtful. Pain from the past continues to haunt many in our community; and it's time we learn how to not only heal, but realize we are descendants from Kings. This show is about honoring the legacy, lineage, and life-line we were born from. Like Baldwin says, our crowns have always been there, it's just about time we show them to the world!
One of the processes of your life is to constantly break down that inferiority, to constantly reaffirm that I Am Somebody."
- Alvin Alley
