“A charming and wildly energetic storyteller!”
—The New York Times
Tim Miller’s creative work as a performer and writer explores the artistic, spiritual and political typography of his identity as a gay man. Praised for his humor and passion, Miller has tackled this challenge in several pieces, including Glory Box, a funny, sexy and politically charged exploration of same-sex marriage that recounts the trials Miller has been forced to undergo in trying to keep his Australian partner in the United States. From Miller’s hilarious grade school playground battles over wanting to marry another boy to the harrowing travails of being in a bi-national relationship with his Australian lover, Glory Box leads the audience on an intense and humorous journey into the complexity of the human heart that knows no boundary. Glory Box (the term Australians use for “hope chest”) conjures an alternative site for the placing of memories, hopes and dreams of gay people’s extraordinary potential for love.
Since 1999, Miller has focused his creative and political work on marriage equality and the injustices facing lesbian and gay couples in the United States and has vowed “to continue the fight for freedom of expression for fierce, diverse voices.”
Author, teacher, activist and performer Tim Miller will perform at UMBC for one evening only.
