Welcome to my chronicle of LGBT history and heroes through theatrical storytelling. In these pages, you’ll travel through time from the early 90s in New York City to Byzantium in 527 A.D. You’ll become an ACT UP activist, a World War II veteran, and a country girl making peace with her lesbian feelings and her deceased, gay father. Also, this is a firsthand description of performing during the Queer 90s as a club kid in New York City. It documents the malling of Manhattan and the attempt at muzzling the performance artist. And moreover, this is a dare. I challenge you to follow my Shake & Make Performance recipe and start QUEERING THE STAGE. Your voice and vision can empower and uplift us all. JACK-ATTACK!
