NY's Best Storytellers Share True Stories of Compassion, Equality, and Love in Fundraiser for Anti-Violence Project
In the wake of the 2016 election results, when much of the country is falling into bitter divisiveness, a group of New York City's best and most-loved live storytellers will stand up to hatred and fear by sharing true, personal stories on the themes of compassion, equality, and love that speak to our shared humanity.Organized and hosted by Nicole Ferraro (Why So Much Shame?, New York Story Exchange), the evening will feature stories told by Leslie Goshko (Slideshow Goshko and Manhattan Monologue Slam Champion), Brad Lawrence (the first storyteller to win back-to-back Moth GrandSLAMS), Marie Faustin (MsReeezy, The Warm Up), JD Cerna ("Problem Cat: A Love Story," "Not as Cute as Picture," GLAAD-Media Award nominee) and more. All ticket proceeds will be donated to The Anti-Violence Project, which empowers LGBTQ and HIV-affected communities and allies to end all forms of violence through organizing and education, and supports survivors through counseling and advocacy.
Presented at The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center, 208 West 13th Street, Room 301, Monday, December 19, 2016 at 7pm. Purchase tickets in advance online here
