Peterson Toscano, a performance artist and two-year survivor of the Love In Action exgay live-in “therapy” program, performed his sketch Queer 101 at the Lavender Languages and Linguistics conference Feb. 10 in Washington, D.C.
The conference continues through Sunday at The American University. Registration costs $5-10.
Toscano is the creator of the one-man stage show Doin’ Time In The Homo No Mo Halfway House. In “Queer 101,” Toscano continues the fictional story of Chad, a former participant in the Homo No Mo program who charts his poignant discoveries and humorous observations about gay people, gay history, and identity politics.
