What Will the Neighbors Say? is thrilled to announce their annual benefit event, Queering the Archives: A Benefit Reading, which will take place at Culture Lab LIC on Tuesday June 25th at 7pm.


The event will feature a reading of a verbatim play created with students of CUNY Queens College in the autumn of 2023, when the Neighbors paired with the Gender, Love and Sexuality Alliance (GLASA). Alongside students, faculty and archivists, the Neighbors turned the Alliance’s archive of journals into a verbatim documentary theater piece originally presented on campus in November. This benefit will raise money for the CUNY Queens College Special Collections Archives and the Queens Memory Project.


Tickets are $20, and include access to an open wine bar at the reception.
