Members of the LGBTQ community are facing a new array of challenges set forth by an unpredictable presidential administration. Its a critical time to remind the nation of the humanity and the struggles of LGBTQ citizens, and Pearl Vodka, in conjunction with That Uppity Theatre Company and Vital Voice Magazine, provides just the way to do that. Briefs is a festival of short LGBTQ plays that tackles topics of diversity. The festival celebrates its sixth year with eight plays that were picked out of 250 submissions. This year, donations and organizer contributions will be given to the Islamic Foundation of Greater St. Louis and the International Institute of St. Louis. Briefs: A Festival of Short LGBTQ Plays will be held at 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday and at 4 and 8 p.m. Saturday (March 9 to 11) at .Zack Performing Arts Incubator (3224 Locust Street; www.uppityco.com). Admission is $20.
