The Holidays are a risky time for suicides and in the wake of you-know-who’s ascent, calls to The Trevor Project have skyrocketed, so this edition, we will be asking for a $10 donation, and will donate it all to The Trevor Project.
Dead Darlings is back this month with GAY APPAREL Edition! This month there is a suggested donation of $10 that will go to The Trevor Project to help with the high volume holiday season.

Host, Amanda Duarte is best known as of late for being a prominent feminist voice throughout the election. She’s the author and originator of the trending hashtag and anthem, #PUSSYGRABSBACK, and she co-created the iconic graphic along with feminist writer, Jessica Bennett.
It’s a cardinal rule of writing, an art form in which editing is Pope. In order to get that play, novel, story or song into fighting shape, a writer must be willing to cut out material that feels like the child of their soul, but just doesn’t quite fit the piece… in writerspeak, we say- “Kill Your Darlings.” Sometimes these precious soul children resurface in other pieces, but often they pile up on the desktop, never to find a home… until now. Come see New York’s hottest writers, artists and performers resurrect their favorite dead darlings LIVE ON STAGE… in the perfect spot for a resurrection- A CHURCH! The show is hosted by writer-performer and female drag queen Amanda Duarte (co-writer of the “Hurt Locker: The Musical” faux-bill for Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Internet Feminist, downtown comedy and storytelling regular).Buy tickets/get more info now
