Ze: Queer As Fuck Oct. 3-7

Wed, Oct 3, 2018 at 9pm

“ZE”: QUEER AS FUCK! is a one-person, genderqueer, kinky, femmesexual, polyminded, gay-divorcee PRIDE parade through the real life of Michelle/Ryan. “Ze” (the pronoun most commonly used by gender non-conforming folk) rips the bandage away from zir startling American Puritan upbringing in a multi-layered “coming out” process. Along the way ze discovers a beloved community that at times is just as ridiculous and pigeon-holed as the one ze’s left. Michelle/Ryan both uses and parodies the labels meant to help an individual embrace their truth in a modern world desperate for definition. “Ze” confronts stereotypes both within and without in a celebration that exposes the complex tension between being authentic to oneself and belonging.
