THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT & IMMEDIATE PIECE OF THEATRE PRODUCED BY YOUTH IN CHICAGO I HAVE EVER SEEN. The intentionally critical ways in which intersections of identity are discussed in relationship to current national and local issues is vital for all members of the queer community to recognize and celebrate. DO NOT MISS the opportunity to see these historically powerful new voices.
Back by popular demand!! About Face Youth Theatre is remounting the play that empowered voices, got people laughing, and incited meaningful community dialogue!!
WHAT’S THE T? is back for 8 performances only!
Internet personality/trans activist/ fierce community leader Ms. Ma uses her YouTube page to create community, live glamour, and spread the good word about queer safe spaces in Chicago. WHAT’S THE T tells the story of Ms. Ma’s tangled web of connections, her struggle to stay positive, and what happens to her community when she disappears.
Inspired by issues of race, gender, age and class in Boystown, WHAT’S THE T is based on true stories and interviews from LGBTQA youth and adults in and around Chicago.

The Transgender Oral History Project is a collaboration-based resource. Our mission is to promote a diversity of stories from within the transgender and gender variant communities by supporting members of our community who wish to share their stories. We accomplish this through by promoting grassroots media projects, documenting people’s experiences, and teaching media production skills.
Subject to Change aims to create a space of “no shame” when it comes to the music they enjoy and the people they love and care about — family (both blood and chosen) and our community via the events and publications they produce. They hope to generate positive energy within the community and channel that energy to support the many organizations working to make this city a better place for queer folks. We celebrate all gender identities and expressions.
