Santa Ana, CA – When Nick Rocz heard that an anti-gay group was planning to protest an upcoming performance of The Laramie Project, he had one thought: the show MUST go on. “The Laramie Project tells the story of a young man killed because he was gay. The idea that we would let a small group of anti-gay protestors stop us from telling that story is just unthinkable,” said Rocz, a senior at CSU Fullerton and performer in CSU Fullerton’s production of The Laramie Project. The Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) has announced plans to protest this Saturday’s performance through their website.
Reverend Fred Phelps, a well-known homophobe from Kansas who has consistently picketed productions of The Laramie Project throughout the country and who is featured in the play, has announced his intention to picket the performance on Saturday, November 19. An opportunity for dialogue is planned following that performance to discuss the play and Phelps and is organized by the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Office at the University of Michigan.
