First off, I should mention that I volunteer as a driver for RightRides
, a group that provides free rides home to women, LGBTQ, and gender-queer individuals on Friday and Saturday nights. The goal is the elimination of gender-, orientation-, and sex-based violence. This Sunday, at the Mercer Street Babeland
, there will be a performance of The Vagina Monologues
benefiting both RightRides and the V-Day
2010 Spotlight on Women of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.
