A few words from award winning playwright,
Mike Elliston
"BE MORE WHALE!"

FB Mike.jpg

As an LGBT writer, I've been lucky enough to work across the theatre, tv, promotions and publishing industries for many years now. I've always felt supported by those around me and encouraged to be the real person that I am. I recognise that for many this isn't always easy. I wrote TRAILER/trash to offer my own support to anyone who feels they exist on the margins and to foster a wider appreciation that underneath it all, we're all the same.

In my world, "shame" in respect of how I was born, doesn't exist.

 

In the play, Shyanne, an African American stripper, offers the younger Frankie, a non-binary female identifying as male, the following advice:

"BE MORE WHALE!"

Because when we're made to feel small, we're bigger than we think we are.

I hope you'll take this opportunity to participate and to share Shyanne's words with your employees, your customers and all those around you who strive to "be more whale", now and in the years that lie ahead. As hostility, ignorance and prejudice against BAME and LGBT groups and individuals appear to be sadly on the increase worldwide, the play's relevance, urgency and call to action couldn't be more timely.

Thank you.
