Los Angeles, CA - On World AIDS Day, Thursday, December 1, QueerWise will present AUTHORING OF THEIR OWN NARRATIVES, at the Lineage Performing Arts Center in Pasadena.

A Los Angeles-based group of writer-performers, QueerWise combines history, humor, and candor to explore the shifting cultural realities of being queer in Twenty-First Century America. One of QueerWise’s signature pieces, a spoken word performance piece honoring World AIDS Day, celebrates its ten-year anniversary in 2022.

This year’s performance, AUTHORING THEIR OWN NARRATIVES, is a compilation of select writings from the collective’s ten-year arsenal of work illuminating HIV/AIDS. The collective has performed more than thirty theatrical pieces in a variety of venues, including Beyond Baroque, Skylight Theatre, and Highways Performance Space. This event marks QueerWise’s first teaming with Lineage Performing Arts Center.

Artist-activist Michael Kearns is the producer and director of AUTHORING THEIR OWN NARRATIVES. From his internationally acclaimed solo work to his local activist involvement, Kearns’ voice — as a director, writer, producer, and actor — has never abated for nearly five decades.

AUTHORING THEIR OWN NARRATIVES is produced, in part, from a grant from Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. Lucia Chappelle, Jim Pentecost and Corey Roskin are Associate Producers while Robin Podolsky is Head Writer.

The Lineage Performing Arts Center is located at 920 E Mountain Street in Pasadena. Admission is a Suggested $15 but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Curtain is at 7:00 PM. Show runs approximately 60 minutes with no intermission. Reservations are encouraged: https://www.lineagepac.org/
