Tara’s Crossing

In Tara’s Crossing, a play by Emmy nominated writer Jeffrey Solomon, a transgendered woman flees Guyana for asylum in the United States, only to end up in a government detention center, facing an uphill battle to prove her claims of persecution. The play is one of the first ever to deal with the subject of political asylum for gay, lesbian, bi and transgendered refugees, a remedy that has been available in the United States only since 1994 and was inspired by dozens of interviews with sexual minority asylum seekers from around the world conducted in New York, Washington D.C. and San Francisco.
