The Secret History Of Love reveals the underground ways that LGBT people managed to survive and find love in decades past, despite tremendous obstacles. 1920’s speakeasies, wartime love affairs, police raids and steamy underground cabarets explode onstage in this powerful work by transgender trailblazer Sean Dorsey. The work features full-throttle dancing, riveting storytelling, luscious partnering, highly-physical theater and first-hand tales of tremendous risk, passionate love, impossible courage, heart-breaking loss, and bold resistance –revealing the great resiliency and strength of the human heart … even in the face of great danger and devastating violence. Dorsey created The Secret History Of Love through a 2-year LGBT Elders Oral History Project.
