IT GETS BETTER
The Abbey, The Trevor Project, Pristine Videos and the city of West Hollywood want to let gay teens to know that suicide doesn’t have to be the only option. The Abbey’s turning its side bar into a video studio for three nights--beginning tonight--as it encourages the people to come in and film videos of support for Dan Savage’s It Gets Better Project. The Abbey also will hold raffles to benefit The Trevor Project. Videos will be filmed from 4-9 pm through Wednesday night. For more information about The Trevor Project, please visit.
Gideon Rose, editor of Foreign Affairs and author of How Wars End: Why We Always Fight the Last Battle, visits Zócalo tonight at the Actor’s Gang Theater to explain how to conclusively and effectively end U.S. wars--like the ones in Iraq and Afghanistan. “Driven by ideology or constrained by domestic politics, presidential administrations throughout the 20th century have botched postwar planning, and successive leaders have failed to learn from the past.” Free, but reservations recommended. 7:30 pm.
Highways Performance Space holds another Queer Monday performance event tonight at 7:30 pm. This month’s performances are by: Travis Wood, Leopold Nunan Soares, Jeffrey Lambert, Joshua Bergeron, Diego Costa and Martin Wiech. It’s hosted by performance artist and curator Ian MacKinnon.
It’s a School Night at Bardot in Hollywood tonight with live performances and DJ sets to help kick your week off right. Doors at 9 pm with Chris Douridas & Valida hosting a War Paint Listening party with an open Hendricks bar from 9-10 pm; followed by a US Royalty DJ-SET at 10 pm. Aqualung takes to the stage at 11 pm, Juliette Commagere at midnight and then a DJ set by Jason Eldredge at 1 am ends the school night.
