About Out Astoria:

Out Astoria organizes the LGBT community in Astoria/Long Island City, providing its members with a way to get to know each other and support the community. Originally started in 2006 as a gay men's dinner group by cofounders Dirk McCall and Brent Gallenberger, Out Astoria now holds several social and community fundraising events each month. It identifies LGBT-owned and LGBT-friendly businesses in the neighborhood and forges partnerships with their owners to plan events for the gay and lesbian community. It also provides a vehicle for its members to connect with others to improve Astoria's neighborhoods for all residents. It collaborates with elected officials, nonprofits, and volunteer groups to help keep the LGBT community involved and visible. Out Astoria is governed by a steering committee of 13 LGBT Astorians directly elected by Out Astoria's sponsor members.

Hey there,

I'm a new Astoria resident.  I'll be taking my one person show, Evolution, which discusses violence in the LGBTQ community to the midwest this summer.  I'm looking for financial contributions as well as people to help put the word out, both are equally important.

For more info check out my kickstarter page:

Thanks so much!

Hey There Everyone!

Astoria has a City Council hopeful from the Green Party, Lynne Serpe, who is gathering signatures for a petition to get on the ballot for the election in November. In addition to being an environmentalist, she is a supporter of the LGBT community, and is asking for your support in order to get the opportunity to represent your rights!

Next Thursday, August 13th, come out for a night of spoken word, homohop, and ribald readings by three of New York's fiercest writers and performers: Brandon Lacy Campos, Shante "Paradigm" Smalls, and Charlie Vazquez.

This is a fundraiser to support an amazing woman who is trying to break a 35-year political dynasty in our neighborhood. Bring your check books or some cash, to donate to the cause (the NYC Campaign Finance Board will match your contributions 6-to-1!).

For more info on Lynne check out

More information on the party and RSVP via facebook at:

**Please also come out and support the LGBTQ community at this event! LYNNE SUPPORTS MARRIAGE EQUALITY FOR ALL! ***
