The Secret History Of Love reveals the underground ways that queer and transgender people managed to find – and LOVE – each other in decades past, and is based on real life stories of LGBT elders. From 1920's speakeasies to wartime love affairs to underground cabarets, the "love that dared not speak its name" explodes onstage in this powerful all-new dance theater production by award-winning transgender trailblazer Sean Dorsey.

The Secret History Of Love is the culmination of a two-year community research process in which Dorsey conducted archival research and directed a national LGBT Elders Oral History Project. The Secret History Of Love features the recorded voices and stories of these elders, along with powerful, moving and hilarious episodes from our community's buried history of love.

The Secret History Of Love features an outstanding cast of performers: Sean Dorsey, Juan De La Rosa, Brian Fisher, Nol Simonse and Shawna Virago. More info at
