LGBTQ+ Festival BEST Scene Reading: Lafayette Square, by Katherine Martinez DeLeon

In 1885, a lesbian First Lady moves into the White House to support her brother, a conservative president, and finds herself caught between two worlds, both of the ‘old’ and the ‘new’: the old society of white politicians and army heroes, and the new society of feminists, black aristocrats, and the cross-dressing LGBTQ community. (Based on the true story of Rose Cleveland, sister of President Grover Cleveland, and inspired by the residents of Washington D.C. at the end of the 19th century)


Narration: Steve Rizzo
Grover Cleveland: Bill Poulin
Rose: Hannah Ehman
