The iconic treasure of the LGBT Community Stormé DeLarverie passed peacefully early Saturday morning, May 25th, 2014. In celebration of her life and immeasurable contributions to the modern Gay civil rights movement (her scuffle with the police was one of the defining moments of the Stonewall riots, spurring people to action), we invite you to join us at Greenwich Village Funeral Home @ 199 Bleecker Street @ 6th Avenue this Thursday, May 29th, from 7-9pm. All are welcome to honor the woman who changed all of our lives forever, and for the better.
