People commonly believe that the LGBT movement began in 1969 with the Stonewall Riots, but a hundred years ago queer men and women were claiming their identities in the public sphere - and singing about it too. Written and created by performance artist Sarah Kilborne, The Lavender Blues introduces a little known yet revolutionary moment in music history when pioneering artists sang boldly about sexual and gender fluidity - something daring even for today, and as deliciously fun and inspiring as ever. "Sarah Kilborne's first one-woman show is an enlightening, enchanting trip to a place in time you never knew took place: Kilborne, creator and performer, has not only unearthed buried treasure, she brings its ghosts to life and glory."

"Sarah Kilborne not only gave a hell of a concert, but she also gave an impressive history lesson about gender differences prior to WWII. Her knowledge is as impressive as her voice."
- Jess Kielman, Lecturer
"We were thrilled to bring The Lavender Blues to our community. Witty, funny and so much more, this show is a smart, entertaining way to remember and learn about our history. Every single person stopped to thank us after the show."
