In 2000, Del Shores wrote a play called Southern Baptist Sissies exposing the painful journey of growing up gay in a church that preaches it is a sin. It has been produced by over 30 theatre companies across the country, and won countless awards for Del's productions and for other productions as well. In 2006, a national tour starring Leslie Jordan, Dale Dickey and Delta Burke played to sold out houses across the country.
Del is returning to this piece because in the current political and social climate, as more and more people are accepting of the LGBT community, the rhetoric coming from churches, pastors and faith-based organizations is growing stronger and more hateful. This means that gay and questioning youth in those churches and families are caught in the conflict even more than before as they see a more accepting society while their church spews hate that is more and more aggressive.
