  • March 25 – 26: Two Boys Kissing @ Parson’s Center for Health and Wellness — Free!
    New York Times bestselling author David Levithan has teamed up with composer Joshua Shank to create a concert with spoken word based on his 2013 Lambda Literary Award winning book, Two Boys Kissing.  Based on true events—and narrated by a Greek Chorus of the generation of gay men lost to AIDS— the story follows Harry and Craig, two seventeen-year-olds who are about to take part in a 32-hour marathon of kissing to set a new Guinness World Record. While the two increasingly dehydrated and sleep-deprived boys are locking lips, they become a focal point in the lives of other teens dealing with universal questions of love, identity, and belonging.
    It is beautiful evening of song interlaced with spoken word, and the price is right, as it is free to the public!

    Our goal is to reach as many youth as possible with this concert, so bring your family (both relatives and chosen family) and spend some time with us as we remember our past and explore the issues facing our youth today.

Our 26th season explores the social justice issues facing our community. As a proud, out, and a united LGBT community, we have made great strides in Phoenix, Arizona, and nationwide. Hearts and minds are warming to our community. The world at large is moving from tolerance to acceptance. We are demonstrating through our voice and our song that as a united community we are as strong as we are diverse.

However, we know our job is not yet done. We still face unashamed and unfiltered bigotry from civic and community leaders, businesses, and many others. As far as we’ve come, the horrific events at Pulse have shown us that ours is not yet a culture that is truly safe to live proudly as LGBT individuals. We ask you to join us this season as we explore that importance of creating a safe place for all LGBT individuals to come out and live out with pride and dignity.
