Aaron Fricke, author of the acclaimed autobiography Reflections of a Rock Lobster, will discuss his inspirational journey from bullied high school student to acclaimed author and activist at a post-show reception on Friday, March 15, 2013 at 10:30 pm at the Boston Center for the Arts’ Calderwood Pavilion.
Aaron is the subject of the critically acclaimed Boston Children’s Theatre production of REFLECTIONS OF A ROCK LOBSTER. As a high school student in Cumberland, RI, Aaron was bullied, ridiculed, misunderstood and gay. In 1980 Aaron made history by successfully suing his school for the right to bring his boyfriend to the prom. By standing up for his personal and civil rights and for refusing to apologize for who he is, Aaron not only won in court, but he also won in the hearts and minds of his peers and his community. His unprecedented civil actions forever changed the lives of gay and lesbian students.
