The Theater Offensive climACTS! Bounce is May 3

TTO, gay BostonOne week from today is The Theater Offensive annual fund raiser climACTS! This year’s party, climACTS! Bounce features an array of performances that celebrate the LGBTQ community.

Performer, Big Freedia, will emcee the event and perform the up-tempo New Orleans style hip hop music she has made famous. Also performing is the dance troupe Skydance Phillypromising a gravity-defying, sensual performance.

If you’ve never attended the TTO’s annual fundraiser, I’d highly recommend you check it out.  For more information or to get tickets link here.

Since 1989, The Theater Offensive has served its mission with groundbreaking interactive workshops and shows by, for, and about the LGBTQ community. Our work is called OUT In Your Neighborhood (OUT’hood) because we go beyond traditional theater spaces. OUT’hood reflects the diversity of Boston, gives voice to underserved LGBTQ community members, creates avenues for cross-cultural dialogue, and breaks down the barriers of homophobia, racism, bigotry and hate.

Broadway Bares “Strip U” is June 18, 2017

Broadway Bares, is an unrivaled evening of sexy striptease that is part burlesque and part razzle-dazzle with all proceeds going to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.  This year’s theme “Strip U” released some eye raising photos and videos for the 27th burlesque show of buff Broadway stars.

This year’s show will take place at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom June 18 and will be directed by Nick Kenkel, whose Broadway credits include “Catch Me If You Can,” “Evita” and “The Wedding Singer.

Pulse Orlando Survivors, Boston Pride benefit

Boston Pride

Tuesday’s benefit has been postponed – More details will follow

Organizers are fundraising to accommodate 32 of the survivors from the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando who have indicated they would like to travel to Boston Pride later this summer to celebrate Pride one year after the horrible tragedy which resulted in 49 people being murdered  and 53 wounded.

To make this a reality a Go Fund Me page was set up.  The benefit originally scheduled for Tuesday, April 18th at Club Cafe has been postponed but more details will follow shortly. In the interim share the Go Fund Me link with friends to help raise funds to bring these survivors to Boston for a weekend celebrating Pride: Go Fund Me page.
