Twenty years ago, Michael Kearns, an openly gay and publicly HIV-positive theatre artist and activist, wrote and performed Intimacies. Join us this World AIDS Day for the 20th-anniversary production of this landmark theatrical piece. Featuring a panoply of characters who speak with abandon, Intimacies is theatre that will rock you. Meet Fernando, a macho flamenco dancer; Big Red, a black female street hooker; Patrick, a Hollywood pretty boy; Phoenix, a homeless man living under the freeway; Marilyn (as in Monroe); and Father Anthony, a Catholic priest who confesses and then some. In 2002, Kearns received the prestigious Playwrights’ Arena Award for Outstanding Contribution to Los Angeles Theatre, which acknowledged three decades of work as an actor, writer, producer, director and teacher.Organized by David Román (English and American Studies and Ethnicity) and Richard Meyer (Art History). Co-sponsored by the LGBT Resource Center.
