Event description
A special reading of For Black Trans Girls Who Gotta Cuss A Mother F***** Out When Snatching An Edge Ain’t Enough by Lady Dane Edidi

About this Event

In honor of PRIDE month and in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, demaskus Theater Collective in partnership with SisTersPGH, Garden of Peace Project, and The Black Unicorn Library & Archives Project present For Black Trans Girls Who Gotta Cuss a Motha F***** Out When Snatching an Edge Ain’t Enough by two-time Helen Hayes Award Nominee Lady Dane Figueroa Edidi.

Edidi's take on the classic choreopoem for colored girls who considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf by the late playwright/poet/Black feminist Ntozake Shange, is “a celebration of Trans Women, Goddesshood, a lament for our fallen, a sword for our living and a challenge to white supremacy, structural oppression and any who would dare try to erase us from existence.”

The reading of the choreo drama will be followed by a discussion led by demaskus affiliate Amanda Van Story Lewis and playwright/performer Lady Dane Figueroa Edidi. A book signing will be held immediately following the discussion.

A project of New Sun Rising, the reading is presented in partnership with Garden of Peace Project and The Black Unicorn Library & Archives Project. A portion of the proceeds will benefit SisTersPGH.

Support provided by the August Wilson African American Cultural Center.

Part of the proceeds will be donated to organizations that support the lives of Black Trans Women. We encourage those who can pay full price to do so. However, for those who are unable to do so, we will not turn anyone away.
