Justin Rielly is an actor, director, producer and writer. Many of his theater pieces turn up at Rochester’s Multi-use Community Cultural Center — the old church, converted into a theater, on Atlantic Avenue. That is who he is.
He also has Asperger’s syndrome, what he says is increasingly defined as “a part of the autism spectrum.”
Anne Loyster draws and paints. And she sings, songs such as Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.” That is who she is.
She also has cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair to navigate through the assisted living facility where she lives in Canandaigua.
