Benefiting Corner Health, The Neutral Zone, and Ozone House
This is not just a show.
As We Go On is an evening of storytelling that promises to draw you in and never leave you. Based on real-life experiences, members of our local LGBTQ+ community will share their stories and hearts. The performances are funny, witty, sad, infuriating, uplifting, and touching. Join us as we laugh, cry, and shine a spotlight on hidden pain and delightful surprises.
The performance honors the resilience of LGBTQ+ youth because they need strength and support to survive and where possible, thrive, in our society. Here in Washtenaw County, we would like to believe that we live in an accepting, affirming, and diverse community where our young people are exempt from marginalization. But the reality is that teens today, even in our liberal-leaning Ann Arbor, still face dangers at schools, among peers, and sometimes, within their own families.
For these young people, Corner Health, Neutral Zone and Ozone House provide a critical, lifesaving network of support, housing, counseling, health services, and safe spaces. Spaces where young people are free to express themselves authentically and without fear. Spaces where they can work to transform their lives and their communities.
By joining us at the As We Go On performance, audience members will gain insight from a curated and diverse group of passionate, talented storytellers. Since proceeds from ticket sales will go to Corner Health, Neutral Zone, and Ozone House, these stories will not only deepen our understanding and appreciation of being young and LGBTQ+, they will also support our youth in ways all will clearly understand by the night’s end.
