Contradict This! A Birthday Funeral for Heroes

Join the Bearded Ladies Cabaret for this outdoor performance that explores the human and heroic sides of Whitman with cake, coffin, gavel, choir, and live musical trolling. On the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the much lauded homo poet Walt Whitman's birth, a group of Philly queers and misfits gathers overlooking the Whitman Bridge to put this ancestor and his legacy on trial.

Contradict This! running time is 80 minutes and performances are rain or shine.
