Join us at this event that to support Queer and Queer-allied artists!  They will be collecticting for the True Colors Fund, an organization that works to end homelessness among lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth, creating a world in which young people can be their true selves.

The Workers Unite! Film Festival is a non-for-profit organization intended to publicize and highlight the struggles, successes and daily lives of all workers in their efforts to unite and organize for better living conditions and social justice through student and professional films. This year marks its 4th consecutive year, and will showcase 45 films in 21 days—from May 7th to 27th. Opening night is May 8th at Cinema Village.


One of our favorites out right now is “Ansel Adams: Classic Images” at Robert Mann Gallery. Presenting some of both Adams' best-known photographs as well as stellar lesser-seen works—including several vintage prints dating back to the artist's very early career in the 1920s—this collection by the legendary photographer spans the grand scope of his Western landscapes.


When Ed and his three adult sons come together to celebrate Christmas, they enjoy cheerful trash-talking, pranks, and takeout Chinese. Then they confront a problem that even being a happy family can’t solve: when identity matters, and privilege is problematic, what is the value of being a straight white man? STRAIGHT WHITE MEN is running through December 7th, defying expectations with a conventionally-structured take on the classic American father-son drama.


The NYC Choreographer's Ball brings the top professional choreographers & dancers together for a performance that spans genres from ballet to modern dance, martial arts to hip hop. With over 160 dancers and 20 choreographers contributing to the event, it is the platform for the best talent in NYC's dance industry to exhibit the most progressive innovations to creative expression and movement.


The High Line is gearing up for their fourth-annual, family-friendly Halloween celebration on Saturday, October 25. Come in costume to trick-or-treat on the High Line, where dangerous trains loom, hero cowboys rule, and super-kids help to change their city. Meet ghosts from the West Side’s industrial past, turn your fears into kites to be set free, explore a haunted train tunnel made by puppet master Ralph Lee, dance to the horns of the Trummytones, and hear stories performed by the Story Pirates.


Does anyone else love, love, love the Village Halloween Parade? Like it’s the only holiday tradition you truly worship? The theme for this year’s New York City's 41st Annual Village Halloween Parade is "The Garden of Earthly Delights." Gahh, so good. Like always, the parade will travel along Sixth Avenue from Spring Street to 16th Street on Friday, October 31st from 7PM-10:30PM and will air on Time Warner Cable's NY1 from 8PM-9:30PM.


Tom Stoppard’s Indian Ink is a sweet, melancholic reverie on family, art, England and India, an elegy for lost cultures, friends and family. Set in both India and England in 1930 and 1980 the play shows the how time ravages countries, customs and memory. In a first rate production, directed with an eye for nuance and detail by Carey Perloff and starring the luminous Rosemary Harris and Romola Garai, the Roundabout does itself proud.


Because we are all exceptionally lucky human beings, horror master R.L. Stine is writing a new set of Fear Street books. Bob and his editor Kat will be at McNally Jackson the night before Halloween to discuss Fear Street, his career, and ventriloquist dummies (we assume), among other things.


One of our favorites, Kent Fine Art opens it’s fall season with FLEX, curated by Orlando Tirado. The exhibition explores shape, mass, and form of the body in relation to an emerging queer, transgender, renegade post-minimalist strategy that strips the body of its flesh, framework, and constraints.
