Loyal Daughters and Sons, now in its 10th year, gathers anonymous stories from community members about gender issues, gender identity, sexuality, and sexual assault at Notre Dame. We then take those stories and adapt them for the stage, so that we can tell the stories that otherwise would not be heard.

We want to build on the conversation about sexual violence that has been growing on campus over the past two years, so this year our theme is asking "What's Next?" This question is relevant when it comes to sexual assault, but it is also relevant to our community on addressing the other issues around gender, sexuality, and identity.
