The Loneliness Project
Creating a documentary-play that addresses disparities and inequalities present in Chicago's LGBTQ+ artist community
LGBTQ+ artists in Chicago are creating a documentary-play that addresses disparities and inequalities present in community. To learn more about the increase in vulnerability and loneliness experienced by this group, the student grantee is conducting outreach programs through theater workshops, story circles and intergenerational interviews. This project is an important effort to foster an LGBTQ+ community in the area as well as increase awareness of the social isolation the group can face.
