Dear girl,
Remember that your arrival was bloody
Your mother’s screams your birth song
That you drowned into life
This life ain’t for the weak
Never let your knees buckle
Submission won’t be your repertoire
Dear girl,In Defense of Glitter and Rainbows Glitter Image
They will lick away your sentiments
Grind away your resolve, cast aside your emotion
But they’ll never find your heart
These hearts buried deep in memories
Locked in mother’s womb
Guarded by childhood tears
Dear girl,
March proudly into battle
Because this ain’t game they spitting
This be civil war
They’ll use civility as a pawn
They’ll call you pretty to disarm you
They’ll throw love to harm you
Dear girl,
Never battle yourself for love
Don’t watch the joy dim from your eyes
Why surrender your smile to arrive on their shore?
Remember your arrival here was bloody
These warriors scream your birth song
They must take you as you are. ~ True Rodriguez





“My love of theatre was ignited during a school trip to see Cats on Broadway. I was so intrigued by how we were transported to this new world, filled with Cats wandering around the audience, the line between cast and audience blurred.
I was fortunate enough to attend many plays after that. The most influential being Celia. Here was a play about one of my she-roes, written in Spanglish, filled with the music my grandmother blasted on the radio while cleaning. I was home, but I was still looking for a story that matched my own. One that I could relate to that didn’t have a famous central character. A play that would speak directly to the girl in me, written by someone like me, for someone like me.
After years of searching, of wishing, of disappointment and a little anger, I decided to write it myself. And so “In Defense of Glitter and Rainbows” was born.”



REVIEWS OF “In Defense of Glitter and Rainbows”

New York, New York — The mother-daughter relationship is readily explored in the premiering theatrical play, “In Defense of Glitter and Rainbows,” written by debuting Playwright Viviann True Rodriguez. With an over-saturation of male and female relationships in the theatre, Rodriguez, wanted to flesh out the foundation of a female-female connection, especially in Women of color. The origin of most female connections is the mother-daughter link and there is hardly a stronger bond, understanding, or basis.”


“The soul of a person is shaped through falling and getting back up. “In Defense of Glitter and Rainbows” allows us to see the soul’s journey.” — Leslie “ButtaFlySoul” Taylor
