TARA'S CROSSING BY JEFFREY SOLOMON

Genre: Drama
directed by Steve Satta

A play about political asylum for Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, and Transgendered Refugees

Since 1994, a small but significant number of refugees have been considered for political asylum in the U.S. if they can prove they were persecuted on account of their sexual orientation, gender identity or HIV status. Tara's Crossing recounts a transgendered asylum-seeker's remarkable flight from Guyana and her uphill battle to prove her claims of persecution from within the confines of U.S. Immigration Detention. The play is one of the first ever to deal with the subject of political asylum for sexual minority refugees and was inspired by interviews with asylum-seekers from around the world.
