Print

Felicia D Knightt relayed her life story on stage at Art Sanctuary and the Alley Theater. The show  was moving and inspired many laughs in addition to tears as she spoke of her childhood, her first love, and how the group Exodus International tried to "save" her from homosexuality. 

The show and Felicia's strength are a great reminder to follow one's heart and  individuality no matter the opposition or trials you might face. 

Felicia was joined on stage by Skylar Dawn, Ciliya St. James, Cyndi Snow, Lindsay Doyle, Amanda Doyle, Tad Desarn, Ed Hiemer,Shane West, Darshwood the Conjuror and Hurricane Summers.  The Va Va Vixens also made a guest appearance performance in support of their upcoming show, Va Va Vintage, which opens this weekend.
