New York

The last Wednesday of every month the historic Housing Works Bookstore in Soho hosts Greetings, from Queer Mountain NYC. Featuring the best comics, writers, activists, and organizers this monthly show is always packed and never disappoints. Past guests have included AMERICA's Gabby Rivera, Author sam sax, The Rundown With Robin Thede's Alex English, and so many more amazing performers. Hosted by Lorena Russi and Kyle Dacuyan Reach out to us on our Facebook page. 

Working with Michael on bringing Greetings, from Queer Mountain to New York has been an absolute dream. He makes everything so easy for me and my team and consistently showcases an incredibly wide range of voices, experiences, and opinions. We have laughed and cried within one ninety minute set. I am thrilled Michael chose Housing Works as the venue for the New York branch of GFQM, as it brings so much life and love to our space every month.
