"Using humour as a tool to combat hate, discrimination, and homophobia, the stars of Bash’d, a gay rap opera, promote acceptance and connect with their audience. The rap-opera tells the story of Dillon and Jack, two young men who fall in love and find themselves fighting the harsh reality of homophobia in an urban setting. This modern day love story battles the typical gay/straight stereotypes by featuring socially charged rhymes that seek to ignite and engage audiences. It runs in Calgary until Jan. 29 at Vertigo Theatre." [Source]
