Planet Ant Theatre Stands Up for LGBT+ Rights in Hamtramck


Planet Ant Theatre, a beloved institution in the city of Hamtramck since 1993, has always been a welcoming home for the LGBT+ community. However, recent developments have posed a threat to the representation and rights of the LGBT+ community in Hamtramck. The passing of Hamtramck's resolution 2023-82, which prohibits the display of a Pride flag on any government-owned property in the city of Hamtramck, is a step in the wrong direction. Now, more than ever, it is crucial for the community to come together in support of our LGBT+ family and stand up for their rights.

In response to everything that happened this week, Planet Ant Theatre has launched a crowdfunding campaign through Patronicity to gather support for their ongoing efforts in expanding LGBT+ programming, providing a platform for LGBT+ voices, improving access to resources, and enhancing the safety of their facilities. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, all contributions to Planet Ant Theatre are tax-deductible. By contributing to this campaign, you can play a vital role in defending LGBT+ rights and ensuring that their voices are heard.

In addition, Planet Ant Theatre encourages all Hamtramck businesses and individuals to join them in displaying a Pride flag on their private property as a sign of support for the LGBT+ community. By collectively raising the rainbow flag, we can demonstrate our unwavering commitment to inclusivity and equality.

They are also putting together a big event to help raise money and bring the community together. On July 28th, Planet Ant Theatre will host a celebration of LGBT+ pride and visibility across all three of their stages: Ant Hall, Ghost Light, and The Independent Comedy Club. This event will serve as a powerful platform to showcase the resilience and diversity of the LGBT+ community. Follow Planet Ant on Facebook or IG to stay in the loop as details come out about the event.

If you're interested in getting involved and making a difference, please reach out to Planet Ant Theatre welcomes your support and participation in their ongoing fight for LGBT+ rights and representation in Hamtramck and beyond.

Together, we can create a more inclusive and accepting society where love and acceptance thrive. By supporting Planet Ant Theatre's crowdfunding campaign and participating in their upcoming celebration of LGBT+ pride, we can make a meaningful impact and show the world that Hamtramck stands for love, diversity, and equality.
