Charis welcomes Koe Creation to share “The Heart Holds Many: My Life as the Nonbinary Millenial Child of a Polyamorous Family,” her story of growing up as the child of a queer polyamorous family. Many of us were asked by our mother to do the dishes as children. Perhaps some of us would be asked more than once. Koe was the type who’d get asked by three times, by three different mothers. Crowded parent-teacher conferences, queer youth summer camp and parental adoptions over potluck dinner were typical of Koe’s upbringing in a queer, polyamorous family.

Horizon Theatre has opened the LGBTQ-themed “The Cake.” When Della, a North Carolina baker and devout Christian, is asked to bake a wedding cake for her best friend’s daughter, she is overjoyed. That joy is short-lived, though, when she learns that the intended is another bride. Struggling to reconcile her deeply-held belief in “traditional marriage” and the love she has for the woman she helped raise, Della finds herself in strange new territory. Inspired by a story still in the headlines, this is a new play by Bekah Brunstetter (TV’s “This is Us”).

Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, the Atlanta Gay Men’s Chorus’ “I See You: 50 Years After Stonewall” pays tribute to brave activists from diverse ethnic, racial, sexual, and gender identity backgrounds. Together, they ended the silence with their voices, their actions, and the coming together of a liberation movement. This concert weaves a story through LGBTQIA history, recounting the struggle of early activists who sacrificed to protest police brutality and unjust treatment of a marginalized community. What once was routine police raids of gay establishments in the 1960s sparked a revolution for the modern fight for LGBTQIA rights. “I See You: 50 Years After Stonewall” features pieces such as “Over the Rainbow” (paying tribute to Judy Garland), “Sticks and Stones” from the musical “I Am Harvey Milk”, and “I Am What I Am” from “La Cage Aux Folles.”
