Religious fundamentalism maims

Thank you nytheatre.com for picking up the show’s statement on religious fundamentalism and social discrimination which continue to maim the lives of thousands of transgender folks around the world, particularly in poverty stricken, developing Southeast Asia. We need to put in place social structures to help rehabilitate the lives of these women. Their governments can no longer be blind to their plight.

I had to stage my show in New York and send the word out from here as the script would have stood hell’s chance of being approved in our respective countries.

But in life, we have to take the good with the bad.  Here’s a negative review (http://www.musicomh.com/theatre/features/fringenyc5_0810.htm) that’s spot on in its criticism. Southeast Asia’s trans women thrive in the harshest climates, and it’s with constructive criticism that we can bloom like the sweetest of desert flowers.

We will continue to bloom with your love and support.

Love, Leona
