New York Neo-Futurists To Present Annual Pride Show June 28 and 29

It nearly Gay Pride Weekend, and the New York Neo-Futurists are gearing up for the annual Pride Show.  The show will be presented at The Kraine Theatre (85 East 4th Street) on June 28 and 29 at 10:30 PM.

Following the format of their weekly performance series, "Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind," the Pride Show will feature 30 plays in 60 minutes, all with queer themes (or queer takes on some of their more popular plays).  The Pride Show is always a raucous, sold out event, so you should get tickets as early as possible.

The performances will feature a larger cast than normal, including Emma, Cecil, Yolanda, Dylan, Cara, Mike, Borg, Roberta, Jeffrey, Kevin, Nicole, Christopher and Dan.

All proceeds from the two performances will go to the Global Fund for Human Rights to fight for LGBTQ advocacy and activism in Uganda. The Fund for Global Human Rights finds the best human rights activists in countries around the world and gives them the resources to do their work.  They currently support twenty-five LGBTQ advocacy groups in countries across the globe, from Pakistan to the Democratic Republic of Congo.  The Fund currently supports five LGBT advocacy groups in Uganda, including SMUG (Sexual Minorities Uganda).
