  • Extended Open Talk

     Discussion.jpg

    Doors will open at 6:30 PM, as they do every week.  This gives guests and members about 30 minutes to grab a beverage or snack, to shop for all the great, free literature on our Information Table.  


    7:00 PM - 8:30ish:  Extended Open Talk, led by Liz
    Open Talk is one of our most popular offerings and this year we have made extended Open Talk discussions more available.  If there is a topic you'd like to suggest in advance, please email your suggestion(s) to discussions@GAAMC.org.  


    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.

  • Taming Of The Shrew

    For more than two decades, The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey's Next Stage Ensemble has visited GAAMC during the summer to entertain us with edited versions of Shakespeare's classics.  This year, we will present The Taming of the Shrew.  


    While most events at GAAMC do not have an admission charge, this one is different.  All guests are asked to pay $10, to help cover costs such as rent, insurance, refreshments, and of course, to pay The Shakespeare Theatre.  

    More about the Next Stage Ensemble:
    One of the divisions of The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey's Summer Professional Training Program, the Next Stage Ensemble was created to foster the work of early-career actors. Participants take advanced classes in voice and movement, while working on hour-long productions of classic plays. These productions bring theatre to a variety of locations throughout the region including libraries, retirement communities, summer camps, and schools. Acting as "ambassadors" of The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey during the summer months, the Next Stage Ensemble brings theatre to communities across New Jersey, with a special emphasis on audiences who cannot travel to the Theatre.

  • Pride Night at New York Red Bulls

    RedBulls_PrideNight.jpg

    The New York Red Bulls have teamed up with the You Can Play Project, as well as other local non-profit LGBTQ organizations, to host the first-ever Pride Night on Saturday, August 12 when Orlando City SC comes to Red Bull Arena. Pride Night will celebrate diversity, inclusion, spread the message of acceptance and respect within the soccer community.

    The Pride Night celebration will feature prominent members and allies of the LGBTQ community participating in a pre-game panel including former NBA player Jason Collins, former New York Liberty player and Brookhaven, N.Y. native Sue Wicks, and You Can Play VP/American triathlete Chris Mosier.

    $3.00 from every PRIDE ticket purchased will be donated to the You Can Play Project. Donations are not tax deductible. The first 1,500 fans to purchase tickets using a linked, Pride-related code will receive an exclusive New York Red Bulls Pride Night scarf.

    You Can Play is an organization dedicated to the safety and inclusion of all participants across the world of sports, including LGBTQ athletes, coaches, and fans. Their mission is to create a culture change where locker rooms and spectator areas focus on athletic ability, work ethic, and team spirit, not sexual orientation and/or gender identity.

    "The Red Bulls proudly stand alongside the LGBTQ community," said Marc de Grandpre, General Manager, New York Red Bulls. "Pride Night at Red Bull Arena holds special meaning to us since the event that is largely regarded as the catalyst for the LGBTQ movement for civil rights began in New York City back in 1969. Our constant commitment for inclusion and diversity within the organization and local community is part of the fabric of our club."

    The New York Red Bulls will wear special jerseys to celebrate Pride Night. Game-worn jerseys will be auctioned at a later date to benefit the You Can Play Project.

    An exclusive Pride Night t-shirt will be featured as the item of the game in the Bull Shop at Red Bull Arena while supplies last.

    Members of the New York Red Bulls front office also marched with the You Can Play Project in the New York City Pride Parade on June 25.

    A fireworks display will follow the match.

    Fans interested in attending this special night can CLICK HERE and use the promo code GAAMC17 when purchasing tickets in order to donate a portion of their sale to the You Can Play Project and to receive the exclusive scarf.
