Cost: $20 (In Advance Online) / $25 (At The Door) Brave Soul Collective (BSC) is proud to present "Brave Soul Ten: The Performance & The Party" (from 7 – 10 pm) on Saturday May 28th, 2016, at Atlas Performing Arts Center in Washington, DC, during Memorial Day Weekend.
In presenting Brave Soul Ten, BSC celebrates its ten-year anniversary as a multi-disciplinary arts & education organization focused on HIV/AIDS outreach and prevention, as well as issues affecting the lives of Black LGBTQ individuals and communities at large, through the creative, performing and healing arts.
On Saturday May 27th 2006, BSC hosted its first public event, “Brave Soul Saturday” at Warehouse Theatre, during Memorial Day Weekend. Since that spring, BSC’s popular “Brave Soul Saturday/Sunday” events have helped to fulfill one part of BSC’s community outreach mission -- to spark necessary dialogue and create safe spaces for Black LGBTQ people to gather and discuss issues affecting their lives and communities. Later that same year, BSC presented its first performing arts production, Brave Souls UNPLUGGED: A Collage In Truth. In its ten year history, it has produced over 15 stage productions, including: Journeys (2009), Aesthetics (2010), Smoke Screens (2011), Moments of Truth (2012), WTF Happened To Baby Sister (2014) and most recently, Plot Twists (2015).
“Brave Soul Ten” (which also serves as a special BSC fundraising event) will include an evening of exciting theatre, music & spoken word performances and the night will end with a celebratory party complete with food, music & prizes.

"I didn't choose to be gay; I was chosen. 'Are you serious? I get to be queer? Oh, thank you. I didn't even fill out the application. I am so thrilled. I bought the ticket, I scratched it off...Look, I'm a lesbian! I won!!" -- Suzanne Westenhoefer
6-8 That’s why we live with such good cheer. You won’t see us drooping our heads or dragging our feet! Cramped conditions here don’t get us down. They only remind us of the spacious living conditions ahead. It’s what we trust in but don’t yet see that keeps us going. Do you suppose a few ruts in the road or rocks in the path are going to stop us? When the time comes, we’ll be plenty ready to exchange exile for homecoming.
