OUR WORD IS OUR WEAPON: A Creative and Critical Response to Bullying, Suicide, and the Difficulties Faced by Queer Youth

Because it only "gets better" when we do something about it.

Highways Performance Space - Artistic Director Leo Garcia presents

A Creative and Critical Response to Bullying, Suicide, and the Difficulties Faced by Queer Youth

Produced by One Imagination, a social justice arts collective
Directed by Carina Clemente

When David's poetry outs him at school, the bullies take their harassment and abuse to the next level. Even the support of his best friends, Gina and Melanie, is not enough to stave off his feelings of depression and hopelessness. With homophobic parents who don't understand and no adults to intervene, David turns to what he, and so many gay youth, believe is their only option: suicide. But David is given a second chance and finds the love and support he needs to courageously empower himself and take his life in a new direction.
