We’re very pleased to say that on March 24th, Vineland High School, another reading of The Laramie Project was performed by students in the Musical Theatre Class. This reading of the play was dedicated to Mercedez Marisol Flores.
The LPP team would love to thank the students and their teacher Melanie Anderson for being involved with our project. It truly means so much to us that they were willing to help us share Matt’s story, all the while honoring Mercedez, and continuing to raise awareness. NJ schools are so full of heart!
Included in the blog post below you can view a photo of the students’s reading and a beautiful photo of Mercedez Marisol Flores. We hope this post may have inspired you to stay involved with the arts and continue to create, spread acceptance, and erase hate.
To conclude, I would like to share some famous words of Lin-Manuel Miranda “And love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love, cannot be killed or swept aside.”
Happy first day of Pride Month!
LPP Team Member Kayla
A note from Alyssa – this is perhaps one of my favorite photos I’ve collected from this project yet. ❤
Mercedez loved music, her friends, and living life to the fullest. The world misses your light. ❤
