On Sunday, April 22, the Los Angeles LGBT Center will host the day-long community celebration WxW: For Women. By Women., for LBTQ women and their allies. Held at Barnsdall Art Park in Hollywood, the free event will include a short film program, a comedy show, live music and theater performances, a fashion show, interactive LBTQ-centric activities, and more. Full details may be found at lalgbtcenter.org/wxw.
Guests and their families are encouraged to create their own picnic spaces throughout the day at the sprawling city park in between scheduled programs. Complimentary food and hosted bar will be provided.
“The impact of the Women’s Marches happening nationwide and the empowering #MeToo movement are clear signs that all women deserve visibility and community now more than ever—regardless of their sexual orientations or gender identities,” said the Center’s Melantha Hodge, co-organizer of WxW. “This is our time to continue rising up and supporting each other as a community.”
Beginning at noon, doors of the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre will open to welcome attendees for a short film program screening Girl Night Stand directed by Jenna Laurenzo; Out Again directed by Robin Cloud; and Fran This Summer directed by Mary Evangelista.
Following the short film program, the SORORITY theater troupe will take the stage and feature new works by Gina Young, Nadia Vazquez, Natalie Nicole Dressel, Amber Hurst Martin, and Katie Liederman.
Hosted by Anna La Chocha, the Lesbian Culture Club will present a comedy show with performances by Chaunte Wayans, Amanda-Faye Jimenez, Kate Rigg, Jackie Monahan, and Dana Eagle.
Additional programs include a fashion show by Stuzo Clothing and live performances by music artists Stephanie Rice, Celina Graves, Terra Naomi, and LZ Love.
“What women need right now are role models who are vocal, creative, and unbridled—and that’s what they can expect at WxW,” said the Center’s Megan Phelps, event co-organizer. “We have selected a roster of amazing, talented women to influence, strengthen, and entertain our community. WxW will be a remarkable event!”
To date, participants of an outdoor resource fair include AIDS/LifeCycle; Angel City Derby; an arts and crafts station by SparkleBlob; EVERYBODY Gym; Los Angeles LGBT Center programs (Audre Lorde Health Program; Center Action Network; Los Angeles Women’s Network; Resistance Squad; Senior Services; Young Professionals Council); a makeup station provided by April Love Pro Makeup Academy; Mistress Natalie; Stuzo Clothing; The Pleasure Chest; and World Dodgeball Society.
Guests will enjoy music in the park provided by DJ 2lips, on-air disc jockey for the Los Angeles radio station Mega 96.3.
