From our  downloadv…..

YUMA CITIZENS:  AWC College had an anti-LGBTQ, evangelical-christian Dean until last year. That old Dean cruelly-fired AWC’s Theater Director (Chip Straley) because Chip was progressive-minded, he was LGBTQ-supportive, he spoke against the Dean’s christian-religion prayers performed at ALL collage ceremonies and Chip helped his students host The Rocky Horror Picture Show (with a live shadow cast) at Halloween.

This year, AWC has a NEW Dean! Word is, the new Dean is kind of progressive. He’s allowing AWC Theater to hold shows of The Laramie Project**.  It’s CRITICAL that Yuma citizens heavily attends and support AWC’s The Laramie Project performances!

The Laramie Project by Moises Kaufman, directed by Ann Wilkinson | Arizona Western College

CALL-TO-ACTION: Please attend AWC’s The Laramie Project shows -Yuma needs to show the new Dean that an LGBTQ-related theater projects is greatly supported and appreciated! If you can’t attend, buy tickets for friends, family or donate to that project.

Arizona Western College is hosting a theater performance about The Laramie Project (**On October 7, 1998, a young gay man was discovered bound to a fence in the hills outside Laramie, Wyoming; an act of hate that shocked the nation. Matthew Shepard’s death became a national symbol of intolerance, but for the people of Laramie, the event was deeply personal, and it is their voices we hear in this stunningly effective theater piece, a deeply complex portrait of a community.)
