Liberty Education Forum today announced it will be the exclusive national not-for-profit partner of the Randy Roberts Potts project The Gay Agenda,” a one-of-a-kind traveling immersive installation that gives curious viewers a glimpse into the lives of gay Americans and highlights what gay individuals are truly seeking: the ability to live their lives in quiet dignity.
“‘The Gay Agenda’ highlights, in a very unique and very real way, the fact that gay Americans are no different from anyone else,” said Potts, who joined the LEF Speakers Bureau in July of this year. “In that sense, Liberty Education Forum is the ideal national partner for this project—their mission to bring a message of gay acceptance to conservatives and people of faith throughout the country is perfectly in line with the goal of ‘The Gay Agenda.’ I’m excited they’re on-board with this project.”
Personally conceptualized by Potts, “The Gay Agenda” is a roving performance piece that uses empty storefronts instead of a stage, featuring Potts and his partner Keaton inhabiting a makeshift living room and engaging in an array of activities popular among gay couples: reading, checking email, cooking dinner, watching television and more. Viewers, who do not interact directly with Potts and Keaton, can observe with their own eyes the uncensored truth of what lies at the heart of the struggle for equal rights among gay Americans: the desire to live in peace.
“There are so many individuals and organizations lobbying, protesting, and rallying for equal rights, but no one is expressing the importance of equality to everyday Americans in personal terms like ‘The Gay Agenda’ does,” stated Liberty Education Forum Executive Director Gregory T. Angelo. “‘The Gay Agenda’ will bring a message of gay acceptance to people across the country—some who are non-accepting on issues of equality, or ambivalent, or who perhaps have never known or even met a gay person in their lives. ‘The Gay Agenda’ speaks to them, and I’m proud Randy has chosen Liberty Education Forum as the exclusive national partner for this important initiative.”
The Gay Agenda will debut in early 2012 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, with additional engagements to be announced shortly.
“The Gay Agenda” is possible only because of the financial backing of individual donors and corporate supporters. Donations in support of “The Gay Agenda” may be made directly through the contributions page on the Liberty Education Forum website (donors should indicate their contribution is made “In Honor of” Randy Roberts Potts).
