New LGBTQ Play ‘Still At Risk’ by Tim Pinckney on Dec 10

Published

on

WEST HOLLYWOOD — Celebration Theatre is the region’s oldest LGBTQ theatre, founded in 1982. It houses a non-profit theatre company in West Hollywood, on the west end of Theatre Row, and specializes in works representing the LGBTQ+ experience.

It received the Margaret Hartford Award for sustained excellence in theater. On December 10, the theater presents staged readings of new plays with the support of the City of West Hollywood’s Arts Division.

Featured is Tim Pinckney’s “Still At Risk” among other new works. Pinckney has written work for Hangar Theatre, New Conservatory Theatre Center and Theatre for the New City.

In the play, Kevin, a surviving activist from the front lines of the AIDS crisis, finds himself struggling to find his place and purpose in contemporary gay culture. When a gay fundraising event threatens to erase the history he was part of creating, Kevin’s anger and passion are renewed and he is confronted with the challenge of how to motivate change in this new climate of visibility.

Along the way, Kevin’s raw and slightly unhinged methods provoke everyone who can help him, damage long friendships and eventually expose some dark secrets.

Hilarious, sharp, and deeply moving, Still at Risk is a powerful look at the personal and political hazards of rewriting the past and one man’s attempt to move forward.

Tuesday, December 10, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. at the City of West Hollywood’s Council Chambers/Public Meeting Room at West Hollywood Library, located at 625 N. San Vicente Boulevard.

Admission is free, however donations are gratefully accepted. For more information, please contact Mike Che at (323) 848-6377 or mche@weho.org.

WEST HOLLYWOOD (Los Angeles Magazine) — It was an epidemiologist’s worst nightmare set to the new Justin Timberlake/SZA collab from Trolls World Tour.

L.A. was hours away from shutting down all bars due to the coronavirus pandemic, but you wouldn’t have known it from the typical Sunday chaos on Santa Monica Boulevard, as throngs of people (some shirtless) crammed into West Hollywood gay bars like Mother Lode, Mickey’s, and Rocco’s for one last ungloved hurrah.

At Rocco’s, a drag queen in a black latex leotard bravely swooped her hand down to grab a dollar bill from a customer.

Another performer did the splits, touching the floor ever-so-quickly as she pulled herself up. Go-go dancers valiantly kneeled on bar tops, accepting cash in their […]
