The Year We Thought About Love

A film by Ellen Brodsky


What happens when LGBTQ youth of color band together and dare to be “out” on stage to reveal their lives and their loves? The cast of True Colors OUT Youth Theater transforms their struggles into performance for social change.

With wit, candor, and attitude, our cast of characters captivates audiences surprised to hear such stories in school settings. “The Year We Thought About Love” introduces a transgender teenager kicked out of her home, a devout Christian challenging his church’s homophobia, and a girl who dresses in masculine clothing even as she models dresses on the runway.

After the Boston Marathon bombs explode yards from their rehearsal space, the troupe becomes even more determined to share their stories of love to help their city heal.

Funds raised will be put towards project distribution.
