IDENTITY: reclaimed encompasses three works that explore the reclamation of individual identity in times of violent struggle, culture war, or political oppression. Troublingly relevant to narratives of today from Uganda to our own backyard in Worcester, MacMillan, Durufle, and Ginastera collectively demand we not let these souls “fall into darkness.”
Coro Allegro is raising our voices with community partners like the Boston Alliance of LGBTQ+ Youth (BAGLY) and the Mass Transgender Political Coalition (MTPC) to counter the record number of state bills filed to erode protections for transgender and queer youth or restrict discussion of LGBTQ topics in public schools. Inspired by moving open letters to LGBTQ+ youth by advocates Mimi Lemay and Sam Brinton, we are gathering and sharing letters from the LGBTQ+ community and allies to support queer youth and their families with the power of our collective voices. We invite you to add your voice!
