— Seeking 10 to 15 artists of any gender, age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation or disability status
— This performance is very education-focused and the spotlights/tributes for each of the LGBTQ+ icons will be created in collaboration with the artists following casting. While the honorees have been selected, the options for the show are wide open, and each artist will be asked to research, and contribute ideas to the presentation.
Breakthrough Workshop Theatre will celebrate LGBTQ+ Pride with THE BWT PRIDE HONORS 2022. In recognition of their indelible impact on the community, 10 honorees - including 7 individuals, 2 couples, and 1 ally - will be highlighted through an educational presentation full of music, theatre, spoken word, poetry, stories, and history you never learned in school. Presented by an ensemble of Breakthrough Artists, this one-time only performance presented at the Coronado Public Library on July 31st (the final day of San Diego’s Pride Month), will not only commemorate many champions from our past, but also the barriers they broke through in order to ensure our future. The inaugural class of BWT Pride Honorees include James Baldwin, Pete & Chasten Buttigieg, Judy Garland, Marsha P. Johnson, Phyllis Lyon & Del Martin, Harvey Milk, Sylvia Rivera, Mj Rodriguez, Edie Windsor and Pedro Zamora.
