Doin' Time in the No Mo Homo Halfway House

I'm going to be meeting Peterson Toscano later this week. He's in town doing his comedy theatrical piece about his time in an exgay facility. Peter seems like a great guy and I've added his blog A-Musing to my blogroll. For readers in LA, I'm planning to see the Sunday night show. Join me if you can. Here's all the info:

See for yourself what happens behind the doors of America’s zaniest ex-gay residential program. Peterson Toscano presents his one-person comedy, "Doin’ Time in the Homo No Mo Halfway House--How I Survived the Ex-Gay Movement!"

Through six characters Peterson takes you on a tour of the Homo No Mo Halfway House, a Christian residential 12-Step program that attempts to save men and women from the "evil snares of homosexuality" through bizarre rules, a gender resuscitation regime and brain numbing reconditioning.

Based on Toscano’s real life experience floundering in various Ex-gay ministries, he weaves together humor, program jargon and outrageous eye witness accounts to form a piece that is hilarious, poignant and inspirational. From the daily rap sessions on appropriate male dress to the surreal Family and Friends Weekend, prepare yourself for a rocky and raucous tour of the Homo No Mo Halfway House, and see for yourself if our hero comes OUT alive!
