Maysles Cinema
343 Lenox Avenue
(between 127th and 128th)
New York, NY 10027

Join the “No Time for Hate” crew as we choose "love not hate” and resist bigotry in our neighborhood.  In reaction to continued hate speech, we continue to raise money for the Harlem-based Ali Forney Center that helps homeless LGBTQ youth.  Every night, 3800 young people are homeless in NYC.  40% are LGBTQ.  Many have been pushed from their homes because of religious-based rejection. Together we'll draw inspiration from the life and work of Bayard Rustin (1912 – 1987), a tireless advocate for peace and social justice who dared to live as an openly gay man during the fiercely homophobic 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s. A mentor to Martin Luther King, Jr. and a disciple of Gandhi, Rustin received a posthumous Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2013. 

Special Guests Include:

Nancy Kates and Bennett Singer, Filmmakers
Walter Naegle, Rustin's surviving life partner and Executive Director of The Bayard Rustin Fund 

Powerhouse Broadway director and Harlem resident Scott Ellis has donated three extraordinary prizes.  Each winner receives two tickets and will be brought backstage to meet the cast of one of the following shows he is directing:

You Can't Take It With You starring James Earl Jones
The Elephant Man starring Bradley Cooper
On the Twentieth Centurstarring Kristen Chenoweth

About

As a community, we are deeply distressed by the messages of violence and hatred on ATLAH Ministry's sign on Lenox Avenue. While we cannot force ATLAH to change their sign, we hope that we can counter their messaging in a positive way by raising funds and awareness for the Ali Forney Center (AFC) in Harlem.

This is how the AFC Executive Director Carl Siciliano describes their mission:

New York City can be a brutal place for homeless youth and tragically, many young lives have been destroyed. At the Ali Forney Center (AFC), we are making a difference by rescuing kids from the dangers of the streets and placing them into our safe, homelike environments.

AFC is working hard to provide our youth with the support and nourishment they ne...
