                “If it’s too perfect, you don’t believe it. I want it a little out of focus. I don’t want you to admire the image. You never stop to look - so you feel.” — John Cassavetes Episode 3 of Black Box Theater Television is "Belong" by Keith R. Higgons, inspired by an Ernest Hemingway short story and the R.E.M.'s song "Belong". It's always open to interpretation what the story is about, but you know if you know...ya know? Never an easy discussion to have and if you're lucky, you never have to. Starring the playwright himself and actress Laura Kiser, the distance between the two characters is personified perfectly. We hope you enjoy "Belong" by Keith R. Higgons

                  Ten years ago, Lambda Legal won an historic Supreme Court victory in Lawrence v. Texas, overturning all remaining state sodomy laws. This month, the Court will rule on two important marriage cases and its holdings will no doubt rest upon the decision in Lawrence and, if victorious, further clarify the rights to freedom and equality that lesbian and gay Americans share with their fellow Americans.
