For the 2018 edition of La MaMa's Squirts, Helix Queer Performance Network gathers some of the most exciting voices from New York City’s queer performance world, across the generations.

SATURDAY, JUNE 9TH AT 7PM: THE LABEIJA SHOWCASE
Curated by Linda LaBeija

You can glimpse the House of LaBeija in great films like The Queen and Paris Is Burning, but in The LaBeija Showcase, peek into the life and history of the House and where it is today, with an evening of collaborative, devised theater.

Learn who they are and learn what they stand for. Learn it and learn it well!
