After his staunchly religious aunt kicks him out of his Bronx apartment, 14-year-old Ulysses begins an odyssey through the West Village, finding a new family at SaturdayChurch, a community program for homeless LGBT youth.  Based on his actual experiences volunteering at Saturday Church and performed by a remarkable cast of trans actors, Damon Cardasis’ dreamy musical is a triumphant tale of self discovery, pride, and first love. ~ Mark Thiedeman
