About From Us With Love

From Us with Love (FUWL) is a Social/Community Engagement Project. This project combines the lost art of letter writing with community engagement in a visual and emotionally conscious display of love letters.  Handwritten letters to themselves as they currently identify in society, i.e. Dear Black Gay Man, Dear Fierce Queen, Dear Chloe, Dear Shaun, etc. are encouraging and sensitive to self-identity, self-awareness, and most importantly self-love. With the current state of society with Florida “Don’t Say Gay Bill”, the youth in our communities are the ones feeling the effects of our government the most. Our focus is to offer emotional and mental aid to those impacted by the current political upheaval that’s disrupting their joy.  Come enjoy an evening with food, music, performances, and the revealing of each visual art piece inspired by each letter.

Brévo Theatre

Brévo Theatre is an incorporated 501(c)(3) organization, founded by Zaylin Yates and his business partner, Terrence Pride, during their time as students at Florida A&M University. Brévo Theatre has produced numerous successful shows, including most recently Tarell Alvin McCraney’s “The Brothers Size” in partnership with Island City Stage, and closed out their first season in 2022 with “Funnyhouse of a Negro” by Adrienne Kennedy.  Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, Brévo Theatre produced a series of virtual dance videos titled "Protest Art," which explored acts of racial injustice, where one video entitled “Hope For Tomorrow” was commissioned by the Adrienne Arsht Center. Additionally, Brévo Theatre produced "American Son," a Broadway play by Christopher Demos-Brown, and featured the Miami playwright in a talkback entitled “2 Shades of Black: An Exploration of Biracial Identity”. Throughout their seasons, Brévo Theatre received sponsorship from the Miami Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, OurFund Foundation, The Miami Foundation, Radical Partners, Broward Cultural Division and the Florida Department of State. Brévo Theatre strives to provide a platform for up-and-coming playwrights, actors, dancers, and directors, offering a diverse and inclusive entertainment experience.
