Part 1 of Out at School begins with a scene called “We Still Have to Fight” which introduces one of the major themes of the play: LGBTQ parents and students have to fight and advocate to make sure their families are recognized and legitimized at school.
Part 1 ends with Kate Reid’s song Pushing the Envelope which speaks to the ways LGBTQ parents and students have to explain their families and relationships to school principals, teachers and staff.
