Throughout the month of June, cast members, directors and fans from Zenith City Horror have been using their LGBTQ platform to support the Black Lives Matter movement.

They have been doing so through donation drives on Saturday’s outside the Main Club in Superior.

As a performance group that prides itself on being all inclusive, Zenith City Horror said it was important for them to support those on the front lines in Minneapolis.

“Just like the Black Panthers stood with us in ‘69 at Stone Wall, it’s important that we stand together now,” Alice Schroeder, Executive Artistic Director at Zenith City Horror said.

As a result of their efforts, the group was able to collect three truckloads of food, water, first aid gear and personal hygiene items to be delivered to Minneapolis.

“That's the whole meaning of Pride month is standing in solidarity and support of one another. It’s not about the festivals, it’s not about the parties, it’s about bringing it back to the true meaning of what Pride is,” Schroeder said.
