”This Used To Be Gay!” with Moe Angelos
Monday, June 8th – 8pm-9pm
On the heels of Lower East Side History Month, theater artist, charismatic raconteur, and Multi-year Queer|Art Mentor Moe Angelos (of The Five Lesbian Brothers and The Builders Association) is leading a virtual tour of the places that “used to be gay” in the East Village and the historic Lower East Side. Having seen her beloved gay-borhood go through many changes over the years, Moe will lead participants through sites of former discos, clubs, bathhouses, theaters, galleries, and oh-so-many bars that once proliferated the streets.

RSVP here!
Moe Angelos is one of The Five Lesbian Brothers, who have written, performed, and published six plays. She has collaborated with the Builders Association as a performer and writer since 2000. She has been involved with the WOW Café for many years and has appeared in the work of many downtown luminaries including Carmelita Tropicana, Anne Bogart, Holly Hughes, and The Ridiculous Theatrical Company.⁣
