Borderland Rainbow Center – Out Of the Closet and Into the Fire

The Borderland Rainbow Center and Framed Wolfe Productions have teamed up to present a benefit performance of Jan H. Wolfe’s play “Out of the Closet and Into the Fire”.

Jan Wolfe is back with an updated and expanded edition of her amazing play based on the life experiences of LGBTQ+ people from right here in the Borderland.  This performance is a collection of milestone moments in the lives of local queer folk and provides a glimpse into the emotional journey of coming out, falling in love, and self-discovery.  All characters are based on real experiences told or sent to Wolfe. The stories have all been edited, condensed and changed to make them more universal, more stage-worthy and to protect identities.

The project has been a labor of love for many people over the last 12 years, originally written in 2009 for Pride, then was expanded and restaged in 2010 and 2012, this 2022 version is the newest adaptation.  “This group of actors has helped me polish the stories to their current shine,” said Wolfe. No one in this production is being paid and all profits go to the Borderland Rainbow Center.  Borderland Rainbow Center will use profits from this production to provide life-saving services such as LGBTQ+ affirming therapy, peer support, food pantry, and case management.
