Times are still tough for LGBTQ youth out there, yes, even after all those “It Gets Better” videos and yes even in New York City, the land of the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck. The folks over at the Manhattan-based Hetrick-Martin Institute know this, which is why they offer programs to help create a safe environment for young people, regardless of sexual orientation. Next Friday, they’re throwing a fundraiser at Littlefield that also happens to be a heckuva party: not only is it hosted by Ana Matronic of the Scissor Sisters (she of the famously infectious “Let’s Have a Kiki” video), but it also features Le Tigre’s JD Samson, with her new band JD Samson and MEN, and lots more too. Tix are $30, but we’ve got a pair to giveaway bere. Details below:
The party also features Bright Light Bright Light, who has opened for the Scissor Sisters, Ellie Goulding and Erasure.
To win the tix: simply sign up for our mailing list here and then comment below with something along the lines of “I can’t wait to dance my face off” or whatever comment moves you.
We’ll randomly pick a winner at 5pm Wednesday. You can also just buy tickets here and help the HMI raise money to help out LGBTQ youth in all sorts of ways.
