Fresh Meat Productions and Highways Performance Space present the Los Angeles premiere of The Secret History Of Love!

Award-winning transgender choreographer SEAN DORSEY and a gorgeous cast of dancers reveal the remarkable, passionate and inspiring ways that LGBT people managed to find -- and LOVE -- each other in decades past.

THIS POWERFUL CONCERT is based on a two-year LGBT Elders Oral History Project ... and features the voices and real-life stories of our elders and ancestors.

From 1920’s speakeasies to wartime love affairs to underground cabaret, the “love that dared not speak its name” explodes onstage in this powerful dance-theater show based on real-life and real-love stories.
