003: Story is Revolution

Sometimes, it feels like telling our story—being 100% who we are—is the only way to cause any change in the world. Don't allow yourself to allow anyone to take who you are from you. In the wake of the Orlando/Pulse shooting, Ray shares "I Tapped My Husband's Back" and Charles Aznavour's "What Makes a Man" from the 2014 production of TingleTangle, a show he conceived and performed during his tenure as Associate Artistic Director of Theater Ninjas that leveraged stories from his journey with sexuality and marriage equality to show how oppressive laws and hate speech effect the queer population. He then shares the impact that receiving the 2016 Creative Workforce Fellowship is having on his life, as he begins a summer of travel and study.

Ray Caspio received a 2016 Creative Workforce Fellowship. The Fellowships is a program of the Community Partnership for Arts and Culture. Funding for the Fellowship program is made possible by the generous support of Cuyahoga County residents through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.

Special thanks to Theater Ninjas for the recording of "I Tapped My Husband's Back" and "What Makes a Man." This monologue and song can also be found on Ray's YouTube channel. TingleTangle was produced by Theater Ninjas in 2014 and 2015, conceived & performed by Ray Caspio, and directed by Jeremy Paul. For more information and full cast list, head to theaterninjas.com.
