As the first production from the 3rd generation of Welders, Shamberger’s one-man show, The B Word, is inspired by and devised from interviews with Black gay men across the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area who were asked to speak about the intersectionality of race, gender, and sexuality. In this documentary-style theatre piece, Shamberger examines the concept of beauty for Black gay men and asks the question: if we fully encourage women to be brilliant, and powerful, and independent, are we also ready to encourage men to be beautiful?
