In the 1990's, AIDS was ravishing the gay community while at the same time drug and gang violence was killing off young men in the Black Community.

Overt racism and homophobia created a divide that made these two groups of men believe they had nothing in common. However, an unsympathetic society looked at them through the same lens, seeing them as two "throw-away populations."

These young men believing themselves to be polar opposites of each other, were dying at an alarming rate from two different epidemics, while the general society's response was...Same Difference.

There will be a moderated critique session immediately following this reading where audience members can give direct feedback to the playwright. Join the conversation! Watch our reading playlist here.
