Month Week Day

Events in October 2017

  • October 6, 2017

    8:00 pm

    This social is hosted by the Arlington Gay and Lesbian Alliance (AGLA). When you arrive, you’ll be greeted by AGLA Board members.Everyone is welcome to attend regardless of where they live, so invite all you friends. June 28th marks a historic day in the gay community.The Stonewall riots were a series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations against a police raid that took place in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, at the Stonewall Inn, in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of New York City. The demonstrations are frequently cited as the first instance in American history when people fought back against a government-sponsored system that persecuted sexual minorities, and they have become the defining event that marked the start of the gay rights movement in the United States and around the world.

    This popular social will be open to everyone. If you do make a reservation for dining, please make it in your own name of course, as there will be no specific group table. Call Freddie’s ahead to make a dinner reservation, as seating is limited. www.freddiesbeachbar.com.

    Join AGLA today and support a wonderful community org. Support this fabulous nonprofit even if you don’t live in Arlington, as it serves as a beacon for equality in the DC metro/NoVA area.

    As community service, if you can, please bring along travel-sized unused soaps, shampoos, lotions, etc. for A-SPAN, which provides life-sustaining services for Arlington’s street homeless. Or clean out your cupboard of unused nonperishable food items for AFAC, the community leader in providing and promoting dignified access to nutritious food for all Arlingtonians in need. The social will serve as a convenient collection point.

    People from all over the world will be attending. For excitement, look forward to meeting and mingling with members of other local LGBT groups. Let’s all celebrate Pride! Allies welcome too of course. Freddie’s was voted the Best Virginia Bar by Washington Blade readers. Don’t like a smoky bar? You are covered: Freddie’s is a smoke-free establishment.

    AGLA Board Meeting

  • October 24, 2017

    10:00 pm

    Category: GeneralLittle Theater of Alexandria ” Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike”

    AGLA(Arlington-Alexandria Gay and Lsbian Alliance) with the Imperial Court of Washington DC have decided to do a Fundraiser for this great play.
    A comedy play written by Christopher Durang. Directed by Howard Vincent Kurtz and produced by Genie Baskir and Elissa Hudson. The story; Winner of the 2013 Tony Awards for best play revolves around the relationships of three middle-aged single siblings,Vanya and Sonia; two of whom live together, and takes place present day Bucks County Pennsylvannia. Without warning, their sister Marsha, who happens to be a movie star, stops in for a visit with her much younger boyfriend Spike. Hilarity ensues as this kooky clan works out their diffrences about poteentially selling the family home.
    Some of the show’s elements were derived from works of Anton Chekhov, including several character names, the play’s setting in a cherry orchard, and the theme of the possible loss of an ancestral home.
    The play premiered at McCarter Theatre in Princeton, New Jersey in 2012, followed by an Off-Broadway production later the same year. It transferred to Broadway in 2013. The original McCarter, Off-Broadway, and Broadway casts included David Hyde Pierce, Kristine Nielsen, Sigourney Weaver and Billy Magnussen. Subsequently, the play has been produced in Tennessee,[1] California, Indiana, Minnesota, Arizona, Washington, Massachusetts, Missouri, Wyoming, Georgia, South Carolina, Alaska, and the District of Columbia. The play is currently running in St. Charles, Illinois at the Steel Beam Theater.

    Critics praised Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike as a humorous adaptation of Chekhov themes that doesn’t require familiarity with Chekhov. The original Broadway production proved to be a commercial success, recouping its $2.75 million investment in under four months. In 2013, it won the Tony Award for Best Play and the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play, among other awards.

    Tickets avaliable through Eventbrite $30.00
