Black Boys: A Night of Spiritual Pride

Artists and community come together to celebrate Black Boys, a new play celebrating and unleashing the possibilities of queer Blackness. Hosted by Saga Collectif Virgilia Griffith, Stephen Jackman-Torkoff, Tawiah Ben MCarthy, Thomas Olajide, and Jonathan Seinen, this night of performances, art and music, plus excerpts from Black Boys, will unite our community in celebration of our Spiritual Pride. Come join an amazing group of artists as we launch this timely and important new work coming to Buddies 2016/17 Season. Stick around after the show for the official after party at Buddies After Hours, with special DJs and performances all night long.
