Normativity: A New LGBTQ+ Musical

Normativity, by UU young adult Jaime Jarrett, is a new musical about LGBTQ+ representation and the gay community premiering at NYMF this summer. Normativity confronts the lack of positive LGBTQ+ representation and the negative impact that has on LGBTQ+ youth who have grown up seeing gay characters continually killed on television, in movies, and on stage.

West Shore Cleveland Needs a New Sign

West Shore Unitarian Universalist church sits on a busy street in Rocky River. Our main “draw” is from people who drive by the church and are curious about it.
