Mar 31, 2016: Stonewall | Preserving an LGBTQ Landmark

March 12, 2016

Ain’t no party like a Colette and Olivia party ’cause a Colette and Olivia party always ends in the spilling of some body fluid. Usually tears. Sometimes blood. Once amniotic fluid.

The ladies of ITWAN are returning to Stonewall with pong balls and chasers in order to break down PARTIES of all varieties – from playing Truth or Dare in your middle school best friend’s basement to playing Stay And Make A Bad Decision or Leave And Eat A Dollar Slice in your mind while standing in the corner of your office holiday party.

WHEN: Thursday, March 31, 2016, 8PM
WHERE: Stonewall Inn | 53 Christopher St, New York, New York 10014
COST: Tickets will be on sale at the door for $2 cash. Seating is first come, first served, including when it comes to sitting on Hot Derek’s lap, which we totally triple-dog-dare you to do. There is a two-drink minimum [cash or card] but don’t worry, our older brother’s soccer teammate has a fake so he’s totally gonna bring mad booze lol.
Please come prepared with ten fingers (ideally your own) and one thing that you Have Never Ever done.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
In “I Think We’re Alone Now,” a new variety show if variety shows were more like that one 8th grade sleepover where you chugged someone’s dad’s Miller Lites and learned how to give a hickey from your friend Lauren, hosts Colette McIntyre and Olivia Levine work through their issues, engaging in the type of #realtalk and secret-swapping that one normally saves for their LiveJournal or therapist. With the help of special guests, games, Google, alcohol, and not their college degrees, Colette and Olivia explore a new theme each month and try to make comedy out of their many tragedies. Audience members are invited to pass judgment (and sometimes jump onstage) as the ladies of ITWAN try to prove that they’re not alone in thinking that a person’s character is revealed in their porn search terms, vegans are terrifying, and that Baby was the worst Spice Girl.

Mar 3, 2016: SKIN, co-sponsored by Columbia Pride, Red Fern & Good Dog/Bad Dog to Benefit The Fund for a Safer Columbia

March 3, 2016

SKIN
a frank and funny solo collage on sex, danger, Virginia Woolf,
and the transformative power of art

Two things threaten Marais’ dissertation on Virginia Woolf: her hot new girlfriend and her own dark past. Confronted by echoes of sexual trauma in Woolf’s work, Marais races to write her own way into a happier future. She’d give body and soul to claim a love greater than any she’s known before. But after you learn to guard against life, can you open again? Trigger warning: brief descriptions of sexual violence.

Text and songs by Hope Singsen
Arranged by Dillon Kondor & Bob Parins
Andrew Miramonti on guitar
Directed by Jessi D. Hill

The Fund for a Safer Columbia raises money and provides financial support for initiatives to prevent violence, support survivors, and make meaningful changes in the Columbia University community. We grant funds to students and student groups to support their projects. We accept applications for projects that work on preventing violence, supporting survivors, educating the public, or working towards meaningful policy and cultural changes. Currently, there is substantial interest in developing community-specific consent education programs and bystander intervention training, as well as online educational tools. We consider any project that aims to make Columbia’s campus more supportive of survivors and creates a safer environment for all.
