PRIDE Comedy Film Night — Peterborough, Ontario
After 15 years of submitting to reparative therapy, ex-gay support groups and even three exorcisms, Peterson Toscano enrolled in the ex-gay program, Love in Action. He graduated successfully from the program nearly two years later, but in January, 1999, decided he just needed to accept himself as a gay man.
In his most famous one-person comedy, Peterson weaves together humor, program jargon, and outrageous eye witness accounts to form a piece that is hilarious, poignant, and inspirational. An expert character actor, Peterson morphs into nine different characters as he blows the lid on the Homo No Mo Halfway House.
If you cannot attend the screening, you can stream this very silly, very serious, and beautifully rendered performance right now on Amazon.
I had the pleasure of seeing Peterson perform this on his UK tour -such wonderful talent . . . had me crying with laughter! Bought the DVD just before last Christmas and the performance is as fresh, informative and hysterically funny as ever! If you've never seen this amazing man in action, or you want a painfully honest and funny look at the 'ex gay' movement, treat yourself and buy a copy / download it and enjoy. You won't regret it.
Peterson Toscano is a brilliant performer who is a must see anytime he performs near me. My favorite performance is his Homo No Mo Halfway House show. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll learn, and above all you will love Peterson Toscano.
