Please join us for this Free2Be Mobile fundraiser. This summer, Mobile’s finest performers are taking to the stage and bending the roles!
Announcing the first ever “Bent Broadway”, hosted by the Joe Jefferson Playhouse. This event will feature some of Mobile’s greatest singers in a Broadway concert with a twist: Performers singing songs written for the opposite gender! Women will kick off their heels to march “Two by Two” while the men pick up the heels for a “Cell Block Tango”.
The beneficiary of this concert is Free2Be Mobile, part of the statewide Free2Be Safe Anti-Violence Project, which provides social services to LGBTQ victims of violence, free of charge. This project is the first of its kind in Alabama, designed to meet the culturally specific needs of LGBTQ people.
Free2Be Mobile’s services currently include support groups for youth and adults, individual counseling, public advocacy, case management and referrals, and professional development. Since first being established in 2014, Free2Be Mobile has rapidly grown, moving into The Center at 60 N. Ann St., taking on two full-time staff, and training nearly 20 new group facilitators. In addition to expanding current services, your support will help with future endeavors, such as:
– LGBTQ trainings at local schools and universities
– Hiring new staff to assist with counseling and case management
– Advertising campaigns to increase awareness of available services
