A Black Trans Woman exits a failing long-term relationship and re-enters Queer Community through her new residence at a Queer Co-Op House in the Central District. As Seattle continues forward with its rapid changes, the characters are impacted by and experience displacement but find survival, support, and tenderness with each other.

Rising Up is a play about the resistance, love and transition of people we see and know in our community: Queer and Trans People of Color, Queer and Trans People with Disabilities, Queer and Trans Femmes and Queer and Trans working class people. Through the character's journeys, we see how their struggles, identities and magic come together, endure conflict and learn about themselves.

Written by Ebo Barton, Sarah Rosenblatt & The Cast of Rising Up
Directed by Neve Andromeda Mazique-Bianco & Ebo Barton

Accessibility Info: The Calamus Auditorium at Gay City is ADA accessible, has two single-stall all-gender restrooms, and is a fragrance-free space. For more information about accessibility at Gay City, please visit gaycity.org/access

It is Gay City’s policy that smoking and use of fragrances are prohibited on Gay City Health Project premises, including all Gay City Health Project sponsored events and activities. The health of some of our staff, volunteers, and clients may be harmed by exposure to cologne, perfume, or other fragrances–which may cause difficulty breathing, migraine headaches, flu-like symptoms and more. These symptoms are not always readily apparent and sometimes show up hours later or persist for days after an exposure.

Coming to Gay City having used fragranced products on your body or your clothing means that those who are sensitive are faced with the choice to stay and get sick or leave and be unable to access important services or do their job. We ask your help in making Gay City accessible to all by coming to Gay City fragrance free.

*Sponsor Tickets: Gay City relies on the generosity of our patrons and supporters to help bring about programs like Gay City Arts. Spending a little more on your ticket will help keep our program running and our ticket prices low.

**Radical Hospitality Tickets are provided as a homage to a concept first pioneered by Mixed Blood Theatre in Minneapolis, meant to “erase economic barriers in pursuit of building a truly inclusive” audience.
