4 Queer Monologues (Video)

Wilson Cruz

Watch Wilson Cruz and friends perform from the first ever monologue book for LGBTQ characters.

LGBTQ Monologues That Are Actually Funny is a book created by Alisha Gaddis for actors auditioning for queer roles. A reading in Los Angeles was recently produced by Zak Barnett Studios (ZBS) and Backwing. Following the performances was a discussion as part of ZBS's "S.E.A. Talk Series" about queer artists and the intersection of entertainment and activism.

Wilson Cruz, who lost a loved one in the Pulse shooting this year, performs a monologue to his mother on her death bed. Watch his performance and passionate call to creators below:
