Queer storytelling in the shadow of oppression:
A tribute to Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl and the power of memoir.

What is hidden and what is laid bare for all to see and to hear? 

Watch local queer luminaries explore the narratives of their own coming-of-age as they reflect on the challenges and confessions of the young diarist, Anne Frank. The Hiding Place: A Queer Cabaret is a live nonfiction storytelling performance event featuring personal histories of symbolic and literal hiding, persecution, adolescence, and coming out by some of the region's finest artists/activists.

Hosted by Carla Rossi, one of Portland's most sought after singers and performance artists.

The Hiding Place: A Queer Storytelling Cabaret is produced by Jason Myers and is a collaboration between his performance lab, Home Theatre System, and the Oregon Jewish Museum and the Center for Holocaust Education.
