    After attending #ThesFest20 and taking the two DEI Panel workshops, I really want to build upon my list of BIPOC & LGBTQ+ Plays to read by BIPOC & LGBTQ+ playwrights. 


    Any and all recommendations would be appreciated!

    I have some suggestions! :) All of the following plays you can read up to 90% for free on the Playscripts website: She Likes Girls by Chisa Hutchinson; The Homosexuals by Philip Dawkins; The Walk Across America for Mother Earth by Taylor Mac; Baltimore by Kirsten Greenidge; Hype Man by Idris Goodwin; and Blackademics by Idris Goodwin.

    Laramie Project by Moises Kaufman is a great one that we performed at our school.
