Feb. 16, 17: Comedy, workshop about sexual identity

By Steve Nakata, Administrative Services

PULLMAN, Wash. – “That’s So Gay!” a one-person play about the personal and public struggles of coming to terms with sexuality and navigating empathy, love and family, will be performed free to the public at 6 p.m. Friday, Feb. 17, in Smith CUE 203 at Washington State University.

A free, public workshop by playwright Kristo Gobin will be at 2 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 16, in the CUB Butch’s Den.

The play is “a comedic look at how coming from a Catholic Croatian immigrant family played a role in my queer identity development – and what happened when I went back to Croatia,” Gobin said.

The workshop will include assessing campus issues, strategizing coalition-building and working toward inclusion and social justice, he said. Participants will examine theory and discuss scenarios to prevent fragmentation of the LGBTQ community.

The workshop and play are sponsored by WSU’s Gender Identity/Expression and Sexual Orientation Resource Center.
