Event description

Description

Peterson Toscano will perform “Everything is Connected- An Evening of Stories, most weird, many true” for free in the University of Georgia Chapel on April 25th from 7-8 p.m. This free, comedic performance will explore the intersections of LGBTQ issues, faith, justice, and climate change. The event is co-sponsored by the University of Georgia Office of Sustainability, University Housing Sustainability Office, Ideas for Creative Exploration, the UGA Department of Religion, the UGA LGBT Resource Center, and the UGA Department of Theatre and Film Studies.

Peterson Toscano is a comedian living in Central Pennsylvania with his husband, Glen Retief. He has been featured in the New York Times, People Magazine, the Tyra Banks Show, and NPR Morning Edition. Toscano’s performance will use comedy to take on serious issues.

His goal is to bring together people with shared values and concerns that may not typically be connected. “For Toscano, a character actor who regularly performs his climate-minded theatrics in live productions across the country, the art is to bring people in with laughter and not scare them away with doom and gloom scenarios,” said Ryan J. Smith, writer at Blessed Tomorrow.

Peterson Toscano’s notable personal journey led him to performance art. He is on a mission to connect with his audiences in deeply personal ways stirring up hope and purpose in a rapidly changing world.
