As you well know, Hurricane Sandy destroyed many homes and businesses recently. One of the places devastated by the hurricane was the Ali Forney Center, a drop-in site for homeless LGBTQ youth in NYC. For the rest of the month, Birds of Lace will be donating 100% of our sales to the Ali Forney Center. Have you been wanting a subscription or a chapbook, or do you want to gift one to someone? Now is an excellent time to do so, as you’ll get excellent reading as well as the opportunity to support important community work. Visit our etsy shop here; you can also donate directly to the Center here. I will update at the end of the month to let you know how much money we raised.
