“Dear ONE: Love & Longing in Mid-Century Queer America”
Directed by Nancy Robillard
“Dear ONE: Love & Longing in Mid-Century Queer America” launches on November 5th and 6th and will be presented as a live, staged production, and streamed to a virtual audience. This powerful show illuminates the lives of ordinary Queer Americans as recounted through letters written between 1953 and 1965, to L.A.’s ONE Magazine, the first openly gay & lesbian periodical in the United States.
Net proceeds of “Dear ONE” will go to support the work of Audre Lorde Project. The Audre Lorde Project is a Brooklyn, New York-based organization for LGBT people of color. The organization concentrates on community organizing and radical nonviolent activism around progressive issues within New York City, especially relating to LGBT communities, AIDS and HIV activism, pro-immigrant activism, prison reform and organizing among youth of color. It is named for the lesbian-feminist poet and activist Audre Lorde and was founded in 1994.
