DJing in Brooklyn TONIGHT! All $$$ goes to Silva Rivera Law Project!

I am DJing in Brooklyn at Hey Queen TONIGHT!  
Just head to Public Assembly.
 I am playing from 10 until midnight!

All of the money goes to support The Sylvia Rivera Law Project. They are an INCREDIBLE organization that does so much important work in our community. Here is their mission statement. Please do check out their website.

"The Sylvia Rivera Law Project (SRLP) works to guarantee that all people are free to self-determine their gender identity and expression, regardless of income or race, and without facing harassment, discrimination, or violence." (

Who was Silvia Rivera?

"She may have been the prototypical Angry Queen. Unbowed, unbought, and virtually indigestible by a gay movement she helped birth, Stonewall warrior Sylvia Rivera died on February 19." 
Ricki Wilchins
 "Finding food, shelter, a safe bed, and even some recognition for genderqueer kids was a lifelong passion for Sylvia. She saw them as society's most vulnerable outcasts. She picketed and protested, caucused and cajoled, and if the occasion called for it, which it often did, she submitted to arrest." 
Ricki Wilchins
 "She was a tireless advocate for all those who have been marginalized as the "gay rights" movement has mainstreamed."
