The culmination of a 2-year National LGBT Elders Oral History Project, The Secret History of Love reveals the underground ways that LGBT people managed to survive and find love in decades past. Advance tickets recommended.

From 1920's speakeasies to wartime love affairs, from police raids to steamy underground cabarets, the "love that dared not speak its name" explodes onstage in this powerful dance-theater production by transgender trailblazer Sean Dorsey.

Dorsey created The Secret History Of Love through a two-year National LGBT Elders Oral History Project. The Secret History Of Love features the voices and life stories Dorsey recorded in these oral history interviews  along with powerful, moving and hilarious episodes from the LGBT community's remarkable history of survival and love against tremendous odds.

The Secret History Of Love features full-throttle dancing, riveting storytelling, luscious partnering 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.

 "breathtaking beauty" (San Francisco Bay Times)
      "wonderfully imaginative and powerful" (The Advocate)
            "poignantheartbreak and eloquence" (San Francisco Chronicle)
