Legends is a new work centered on intergenerational coming of age stories of LGBTQ people of color in the US. Using Documentary Theater, Legends explores the journey of LGBTQ youth of color as they battle identity politics in an effort to create their own community and culture of legends and legacy outside of mainstream culture. Based on interviews with local LGBTQ youth, adults and elders, the piece uses a Queer POC aesthetic to illuminate diverse stories and experiences of youth, race, and representation growing across different generations.
