The Virginia Anti-Violence Project (VAVP) is partnering with the Richmond Triangle Players and TheatreLAB for a new project entitled NERVE: Stories of Queer Resilience! This new project will focus on stories of anti-LGBTQ hate crimes, bullying, and harassment in Virginia. We are currently collecting stories from the LGBTQ community about the violence we face and how we survive. There will be multiple story gathering events throughout Richmond:
- Monday, February 9th 5:30pm-8:00pm at the Gay Community Center of Richmond
- Wednesday, February 11th 5:30pm-8:00pm at Fan Free Clinic *Important Note: This event is open to persons who identiy as trans only.
- Sunday, February 22nd 11:00am-1:30pm at Richmond Triangle Players
You can also complete this online form to share your story.
Sharing our stories can be healing! So please help share this opportunity.
The stories will be combined to create a script and then the production of NERVE: Stories of Queer Resilience will debut in Richmond in late May.
