OutCasting 23 — "Queering History"

A reading of the play "Queering History," written by Maggie Keenan-Bolger with homeless LGBTQ youth.

July 16, 2014


On this episode of OutCasting, we present an abridged reading of the play, "Queering History," written by Maggie Keenan-Bolger with homeless LGBTQ youth.  The play illustrates the effects of the exclusion of LGBTQ history in our schools.

Coincidentially, three years ago, on July 14, 2011, the Fair, Accurate, Inclusive, and Respectful (FAIR) Act was signed into law in California, ending the exclusion of LGBTQ history in California schools. On an earlier edition of OutCasting, we spoke about the law with its sponsor, Cal. State Sen. Mark Leno.

On the next episode, to be posted on July 23, 2014, OutCaster Travis will talk with Maggie about the play.

"Queering History" was recorded in the OutCasting studio with actors Maggie Keenan-Bolger, Ria Cooper, Liz Parker, Tim Connell, J'nelle Chelune, Nathan Gregory, Kirsten Benjamin, and Cheo Bourne.

"Queering History" was written by Maggie Keenan-Bolger with homeless LGBTQ youth.  This program was produced by OutCasting youth participants Lester, Nicole, Sydney, Travis, and Josh.  OutCasting's executive producer is Marc Sophos.
