When Mal and her partner Meg decided to get married, they had no idea they would be in the middle of one of the biggest civil rights victories of their generation. "Still Married" is Mal's latest LGBT educational performance project and winner of a 2006 grant from the Cambridge Arts Council.
Who is this Mal? Mal has been performing LGBT educational comedy shows in middle and high schools for more than seven years. Her latest work, "Still Married," received a grant from the Cambridge Arts Council in 2006.Malís background includes work as an HIV/AIDS educator for Healthcare of Southeastern Massachusetts, a Safe Schools trainer with the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network (GLSEN), a speaker with SpeakOut, a marriage equality activist and canvasser for The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and MassEquality, and an adult advisor for The North Shore Alliance of Gay and Lesbian Youth (NAGLY).
Mal is a co-founder, producer, writer and performer with Queer Soup Theater, which has produced original works including "Buffy the Vampire Slayer's High School Reunion," "Invasion of Pleasure Valley," "My Yolanda Love," and the critically acclaimed "Home".For the past nine years, Mal has been clowning around as a clown doctor with Big Apple Circus Clown Care at Boston Children's Hospital.
"Still Married" is Mal's story of her marriage to her partner Meg and her work to preserve equal marriage, as seen through the eyes of those she encountered along the way. "Still Married" presents a warmhearted look at how people from many walks of life grapple with marriage equality and how Mal experiences her own identity as she celebrates her own marriage.
"Still Married" is both an artistic endeavor and key component of efforts to make schools and youth groups safer for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered students. Through a series of monologues inspired by people Mal met while canvassing door to door for equal marriage rights in Massachusetts, "Still Married" will give students the chance to learn about the struggle for marriage equality in a way that is both accessible and entertaining.
