“The Year We Thought About Love” goes behind the scenes of one of the oldest queer youth theaters in America. Boston-based True Colors: OUT Youth Theater transforms daily struggles into performance for social change. With wit, candor, and attitude, our cast of characters captivates audiences surprised to hear such stories in school settings. The film introduces us to a number of Boston youth, including a transgender teenager kicked out of her house, a devout Christian challenging his church’s homophobia, and a girl who prefers to wear boys’ clothing even as she models dresses on the runway. When bombs explode outside their building, the troupe becomes even more determined to share their stories of love to help heal their city."
Join us for a free screening of "The Year We Thought About Love" (running time 68 mins) followed by a Q&A with several cast members.
Admission is free!
