BRATTLEBORO -- Green Mountain Crossroads presents Bethel Steele in "The Skin You’re In" on Sunday at 6 p.m., at the New England Youth Theatre, 100 Flat St. The event is family-friendly, and tickets are available on a sliding scale, from $1 to $10.

"The Skin You’re In: Living Outside the Gender Binary" combines a live solo performance, followed by an open conversation about gender identity, performance and non-conformity from the perspective of a gender-queer singer-songwriter.

Steele is an Americana musician, writer and budding LGBTQ community activist. Steele has released two albums, the most recent, "Of Love and Whiskey" debuted on the Folk-DJ charts at No. 17 and climbed the Roots Music Report’s Top Folk Album charts to No. 16. Based in Boston, Steele is currently touring "The Skin You’re In" concert and conversation as part of a grant from Club Passim’s Iguana Music Fund. The Brattleboro performance is sponsored by Green Mountain Crossroads, a local LGBTQ community nonprofit bringing LGBTQ events and workshops to the local area.
