Faye Driscoll’s Thank You For Coming: Play, a raucous, unbridled performance presented last month in its New York premiere at Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM)’s 2016 Next Wave Festival, has quite a few things going for it. One of the strongest may be the uninhibited sense of joyous play, the likes of which you may not have experienced since childhood.

Each June, New York City observes Pride Month by celebrating and commemorating the LGBTQ community with vibrant events and exhibitions of all kinds. This year, among innumerable festivities, New York Live Arts facilitates “The House Party,” part of a multi-faceted celebration and remembrance of Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company Co-founder Arnie Zane. Artist Zoe Leonard displays her work Strange Fruit at the Whitney, and discusses its themes of mortality and discrimination with the Brooklyn Rail. The annual Pride March floods 5th Avenue, and devotes a moment of silence to members of the community lost to AIDs and discrimination. The Joyce Theater provides a week of queer programming with performances from both Madboots Dance and Sean Dorsey Dance.
