Collection Description

Historical Note

The Southeastern Arts, Media and Education (SAME) project was a non-profit multi-arts organization for the gay and lesbian community in Atlanta, Georgia whose mission was to use the arts to implement social change. SAME produced over 70 plays, original film and video works, and published Amethyst, a semi-annual journal of creative writing and visual arts. Rebecca Ranson was the Executive Director of SAME project for twelve years, directing a number of the performances produced by the organization. Frances Pici worked as stage manager, assistant director, and performer for many of Ranson's directorial endeavors. SAME operated from 1984-1996.
