This play advocates for more space and access for queer youth in Chicago.
Internet personality/trans activist/ fierce community leader Ms. Ma uses her YouTube page to create community, live glamour, and spread the good word about queer safe spaces in Chicago. What’s the T? tells the story of Ms. Ma’s tangled web of connections, her struggle to stay positive, and what happens to her community when she disappears.
Inspired by issues of race, gender, age and class in Boystown, What’s the T? is based on true stories and interviews from LGBTQA youth and adults in and around Chicago.
