Calling all LGBTQIA teens in the New York (and outlying) area! We want YOU to contribute to MAKE IT STOP, a zine about bullying. We’re open to anything — do you want to do an advice column? Draw a comic? Write a letter to a homophobe? Tell your teachers, parents, friends, what they could do to help? If you want to contribute but aren’t sure what you want to do, that’s ok — email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and you can join our brainstorming list, and we can show you some ideas that are waiting for the right person. Artists, writers, all are welcome — let’s make something that matters. Get in touch soon! email@example.com

The Two River Theater in Red Bank NJ will be hosting a coffeehouse for LGBT youth on Saturday, November 27th, from 6 – 8pm.
Whether you are feeling alone, finally finding your community, or anywhere in between, come share your story. Sing a song, perform a poem or monologue, bring a piece of your art to put on display, do some stand-up, share your pain or joy or frustration or humor in an artful way. Or come to listen to other peoples’ stories and just drink coffee and hang out.
We’ll film our own It Gets Better video that night — you can help! RSVP᾿s are encouraged, but not required: 732-345-1400 x1814. Artists who would like to participate should email Two River Theater’s Director of Education, Kate Cordaro for the info — firstname.lastname@example.org
