  • Do I Sound Gay?

    Do_I_Sound_Gay.jpg

    cheerful, highly personal investigation into queer cultural identity, Do I Sound Gay? begins with US film-maker David Thorpe guiltily confessing that he’s never been comfortable with the inflections of his voice. He asks assorted friends, experts, and entertainers for their take on the meaning and origins of what we think of as the modern “gay voice”, while warily taking a course of speech training to learn to “code-switch, but volitionally” (I’m not sure what it means, but it involves him walking around New York muttering “tilapia, tilapia”).

    Doors will open at 6:30 PM, giving our volunteers time to set up equipment and refreshments...your help would be appreciated.  This is also a great time to catch up with friends while grabbing a beverage and some popcorn from our free "concession."  

    The film will begin at 7:00 PM, with time afterward for a brief discussion of the topic.

  • Weekly Meeting

    Since September 11, 1972, the Gay Activist Alliance in Morris County has met at the Morristown Unitarian Fellowship every Monday, and that tradition continues.  Our standard format is that doors open at 6:30 PM, with our Open Talk and other discussion groups meeting from 7:00 until 8:00-8:15.  We then have an intermission for refreshments, to chat with friends, or whatever floats your boat.  Our main program begins at 8:30 and typically ends between 9:30 and 9:45.  

    We do not charge admission unless we are hosting a specific event that has an associated cost, such as our fundraising dinner "Pastabilities" in April, or our annual performance by the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey.  On these nights there is a fixed admission price of $10 per person.  

    Although we do not charge admission, we are wholly self-funded and we do have to pay for essentials such as rent, insurance, hosting this website, etc.  To cover those costs we ask members to donate $5 at the front door each visit, and we ask that non-members donate $7 per visit.  Of course, no one will be turned away for their inability or refusal to make a donation.  

    As information for this week's program gets confirmed, this event will be updated with more specific details.
