DANCING FOR BRIGID-Get The Discount Code (see below)
“Dancing for Brigid” concerns a desperate member of a young adult LGBTQ group seeking help from their mentor, who tells the story of his own coming out as a 1990s married man. The group helps spin the tale, combining hip-hop and Irish dancing that honors the ancient Celtic priestess/warrior Brigid. 19 cast members of varying ages, races, & genders play 45 characters. Joining the cast are talented Stage/Film/TV actress Sachi Parker, daughter of Oscar winner Shirley MacLaine, and Carey Fox, retired Emmy Award-winning MSNBC producer who has returned to his first love of acting.
"Dancing for Brigid" performs June 8-9-10 in the Little Theatre at Manhattanville College in Purchase. LOFT members will get a 20% discount and only pay $20 per ticket using the code LOFTBrigidPride.

A special invitation from Jacoby Ballard, yoga teacher and social justice worker:
"I’ve been going to this LGBTQIA+ retreat for ten years and have taught yoga at six or seven of them. This team is so tender and wise, and I consider Isabel Adon and Madeline Klyne to be dharma mentors and queer siblings. Our multigenerational queer sangha – folks from 18 to 80 – is gorgeous, deep, unique, and a community that I call home. If you meditate or you’d like to learn how, if you’re just coming out or have been out for decades, if you consider yourself Buddhist or have a regular personal practice, if you’ve been on the frontlines of social justice work or don’t even know what that means – this space is for you.
We anticipate, affirm, and welcome you as you are."
This retreat is open to all who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Asexual, or Queer+. It will be an opportunity for this community to come together, care for each other, and recall true inner goodness. We will explore ways of sustaining a kind heart, a clear open mind, and a strong body. We'll also engage with the ancient teachings and practices offered by the Buddha that cultivate compassion, wisdom, and skillful actions. Please join us!
This in-person retreat will begin on Friday, May 26, at 3 p.m. EST and will end on Monday, May 29, at 2 p.m. EST.
