Description:

Cleaning Closets is an oral history project that collects and shares true coming out stories from both sides of the closet door.  This includes the perspective of LGBT people as well as the family and friends to whom they come out.  It is my hope that showing both points of view can help us find common ground and make the coming out process easier for everyone involved.  This project was inspired by a conversation I [the author, Jonathan Mayo] had with my mother years after I came out to her.  She confessed that at first she had blamed herself for my sexuality.  Not wanting to hurt my feelings, she kept this from me until she had grown to accept it herself.  That's when I realized that even our families have a coming out process.  For more information about this project, please visit http://www.cleaningclosets.org/ This play will run February 17 - 21 at 7:30 p.m. and on February 22 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10, $5 for seniors and non-MSU students, and free for MSU students with IDs.  Tickets can be reserved by contacting the MSU Box Office, 606-783-9308 or by writing mtdboxoffice@moreheadstate.edu.
