Molly Van Avery’s Show Description: Do gay parents raise gay children? Some do. As was the case for performance artist Molly Van Avery. Join her for parlor games, to spy on her childhood, and to help her connect the dots between climate change, white-ness, and gay marriage as she wanders, out loud, along that river in Egypt.
Harry Waters Jr.’s Show Description: During the turbulent times in New York in the 1970′s and 80′s, marriage was not even an option for men like Harry Waters Jr. They were “illegals” and they reveled in that. Forty years later, circumstances have changed. Harry has embarked on a performance to explore, confess, and share the content and context of his family as a way to encourage others to honestly appraise their lives. As a gay African American man from Denver, Colorado with brothers, parents, mixed race sons, a white ex-wife, and a white male partner, Harry’s family unit is…complicated.
Join us the following day, Sunday, October 7th, for a full day of Open Space Technology conversations concluding in an open mic report back at 7:00 pm! More details for Day 2 here.
