If You Promise Not To Tell

If you missed it last month, 'If You Promise Not To Tell' is back, being performed again at the Punchi Theatre in Borella at 7pm tomorrow.

It's organized by the Sakhi Collaboration, who work with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, and intersex (LGBTQI) people in Sri Lanka. The play is "a performance of stories from queer men's lives". We've heard it's very good and also quite moving. The poster seems to gesture at an evening of lighthearted, comic tales, but the performance includes sad, true stories of the struggles members of the LGBT community face in Sri Lanka.

We're pleased to see so many LGBT related activities going on around the city lately - There was the stand up show by the transgender performer D'FunQT by D'Lo last week and there's Koluu's annual burlesque 'Let's Hear It For The Boys' next month. It's encouraging.

It's good that plays like 'If You Promise Not To Tell' are being performed in the country, and you should definitely have a look - regardless of what your sexual orientation may be. Watch, empathise, and love. Helps everyone.
