This Week's NYC Up And Out Featured Events 
SPEAKEASY - John and Jane's Adventures in the Wonderland

Wednesdays - Saturdays 8PM
Saturdays 2PM & Sundays 3PM

Theater for the New City, 155 1st Ave. NY

Lewis Carroll's literary characters and events from "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass" are transformed into real-life historically- significant entertainers and events from NYC's Prohibition-era queer culture, with whom Jane and John enjoy friendships and love affairs. After a night of speakeasies, buffet flat parties, police raids, drag balls, and a bizarre trial, will they reveal their "dreams" to each other and "speak easy" about their truths?

30th Annual Night of a Thousand Gowns
March 12 6pm - 12am

The 30th Annual Night of a Thousand Gowns will be a historic one and it is more than just a dazzling display of regal glamour, it is an opportunity to celebrate the LGBT community, and in particular, the Reign of Emperor XXIV Opi N. Yated aka Scott Safier and Empress XXIX Madison Mansfield. Of course what Coronation Ball would be complete without the midnight crowning of Imperial Crown Prince Royal Fredd E Tree and Imperial Crown Princess Royale Sugar B. Real aka Rhonda Potter
