Today is the 8th day of amazing, and the amazing keeps coming. Last night we saw a “play” called Pink Money, set in a gay club, a safe space for the gay community, this work combines dance, physical theatre, drama, and spoken word to create awareness amongst the audience of how wealth and privilege have a huge impact on spaces that are meant to be safe spaces for the entire LGBTIQA community, but are really only accessible to upper and middle-class members of that community.
This show holds some important lessons for members of the gay community, especially those who see themselves as being discriminated against but don’t see how they discriminate against others in their own community, intentionally or otherwise.
It’s fun, it’s sexy, it’s educational. See it.
