  • LGBTQ Living History Panel

    • Monday, August 22, 2022 at 06:00 PM
    • Morristown Unitarian Fellowship
    • 1 person is going



    In October of 2021, Roxbury Public Library hosted a special online event that we will share in an in-person re-screening tonight starting around 6:15 PM. GAAMC and the Roxbury Public Library's Continuing Education Team assembled a panel that shared stories from their personal histories, as LGBTQIAA+ members of the Northern NJ community. This unique panel shares their first-person accounts of LGBTQ history. It is not something you want to miss!  This film is just over 90 minutes in length.

    Panelists include:  Mickey Suiter (you may have heard of him), Jon Galluccio, Gordon Sauer (who?), Deb Russ, Sue Henderson, Lauren Albrecht, and our facilitator, Roxbury's Mayor Bob DeFillippo.

    Doors will open at 6:00 PM. There is plenty of free parking. Refreshments will be served. We do not charge admission, but we do accept voluntary donations.

  • Special Appeal

    For decades, GAAMC has reached out a supportive hand to neighbors in and out of the LGBTQ+ community. For decades, our members and friends have joined our efforts. Here is your newest opportunity to help!

    In response to food insecurities caused by the pandemic, Chatham United Methodist Church started handing out food and other essentials to the needy from their parking lot. Nearly 120 weeks later, the demand is still overwhelming and unrelenting. 

    To do our part, we are asking for donations to be dropped off at GAAMC meetings throughout the month of August, or left in the collection boxes in the Great Hall any time the building is open.

    Here is a list of some of the needed items:

    Dry Pasta
    Jarred/Canned Pasta Sauce
    Rice
    Dry Cereal/Oatmeal
    Tuna
    Canned or Dry Soups
    Peanut Butter & Jelly/Jam
    Vegetable Oil
    Salad Dressing

    Toothpaste & Toothbrushes
    Mouthwash
    Feminine Hygiene Products
    Shampoo & Conditioner
    Bath Soap
    Deodorant
    Shaving Cream

    Baby Food
    Formula
    Baby Diapers
    PediaSure

    Toilet Tissue
    Paper Towels
    Facial Tissues

    ShopRite Gift Cards
    Bags & Boxes (for distributing donations)

    To ensure compliance with local Board of Health regulations, we ask that only non-perishable items be donated, and that you double-check expiration/sell-by dates. No expired food may be distributed to the public.

    Checks made payable to “Chatham United Methodist Church” with “COVID Food Relief” in the memo field, may be dropped off at GAAMC, or mailed directly to the church at 460 Main Street, Chatham, NJ 07928.

    IF YOU NEED HELP please visit Chatham United Methodist Church (460 Main St., Chatham) on Wednesdays, between 2:45 and 4:00 PM. Donations are confidential, and no form of ID or registration is required. Just show up and ask.

    GAAMC will be collecting donations throughout the month of August. A volunteer will transport donations from Morristown to Chatham every Tuesday for sharing on Wednesday.

  • Discovery Orchestra TV Show


    This is a special invitation from The Discovery Orchestra for free tickets to a live TV show taping for the Gay Activist Alliance in Morris County.

    The Discovery Orchestra is a music education organization breaking down barriers to help people of all experiences and backgrounds connect with classical music. Under the direction of Artistic Director George Marriner Maull, The Discovery Orchestra engages audiences through interactive concerts, community outreach events, public television shows, educational videos, podcasts and on the radio. Generations have grown up without experiencing just how meaningful classical music listening can be, and we are seeking to change that.

    It would be our pleasure to have GAAMC be a part of the audience for the live taping of The Discovery Orchestra's 6th public television program, which will be distributed by American Public Television on NJPBS and other stations across the country beginning in May 2023. The featured piece is an exhilarating, accessible orchestra work that will be even more exciting through our interactive format. This unique event is by invitation only, and there is no ticket charge for anyone to attend. Hosted and conducted by Maestro Maull, with 90 Discovery Orchestra musicians performing, it will be a wonderful opportunity to experience the Orchestra's educational music listening mission in action!

    Sunday, September 18, 2022 at 2:45 PM
    Location: The Pingry School, Hauser Auditorium,
    131 Martinsville Road, Basking Ridge, NJ 07920
    The Pingry School is an accessible facility.

    SPECIAL NOTE: Though this concert is free to attend, it is being filmed and therefore every seat must be filled. GAAMC has secured a small block of tickets, which our Treasurer is holding. This will allow us to sit together. If you can attend, please dress appropriately. If you reserve a ticket and for any reason, you find you cannot attend please email [email protected] so we may release your ticket for someone else to enjoy.

    To reserve your ticket, please hit the Reserve Your Seat button and you will be taken to our online store where you may "purchase" a ticket for $0.00. This will help us manage our inventory of tickets.  Should you receive a notice that there aren't any seats available, we will contact you (or you may email [email protected]) and we do what we can to find you a ticket(s).
