The People's Joker movie screening - June 2, 2024 7pm

Join us for a free movie screening of The People's Joker on Sunday June 2, 2024 at 7pm at M&D Playhouse at the Historic Eastern Slope Inn (2760 White Mountain Highway).  This will be the New Hampshire premiere for this film!  House will open at 6pm and the bar will be open with drinks and snacks available for purchase.

The New Hampshire premiere of “The People’s Joker,” an explosive autobiographical queer coming-of-age superhero parody co-written, directed and starring Vera Drew, a transgender editor, director, writer and actress who has worked on such projects “On Cinema,” “Comedy Bang! Bang!” and “Who Is America?”

The film unofficially parodies characters from the Batman comics, and the main character is an unconfident, closeted trans girl as she moves to Gotham City to make it big as a comedian by joining the cast of UCB Live — a government-sanctioned late night sketch show in a world where comedy has been outlawed. As mainstream success eludes our heroine, leading her to unite with a ragtag team of rejects, misfits, and a certain love interest named Mister J, "Joker the Harlequin" is born again as a confident (and psychotic) joker on a collision course with the city's fascist caped crusader. Vats of feminizing chemicals, sexy cartoon interludes, scarecrow psychiatrists, CGI Lorne Michaels, and psychedelic gender dysphoria all play supporting roles.

MWV Candelight Vigil for Nex Benedict - March 3, 2024 7pm

Please join the vigil to honor Nex Benedict Sunday March 3 at 7pm at the North Conway Community Center Gazebo.  Nex Benedict, a 16 year old from Oklahoma who identified as non-binary, died after an altercation with three students in their school bathroom. We stand with the grieving family and loved ones of Nex.  Nex’s death is a stark reminder of the dangers faced by LGBTQIA youth, especially in environments where bullying and discrimination are prevalent- which unfortunately includes our schools.  Reports indicate Nex endured bullying for months before the incident.  This unacceptable behavior is fueled by a climate of intolerance with recent anti-LGBTQ legislation contributing to a sense of isolation and vulnerability.

Join us for Drag performance by Lady Vanessa with friends at Abenaki Trail Restaurant inn North Conway on February 9, 2024 at 8pm. Lady Vanessa with her fabulous backup dancers will perform a Live Drag Show with tributes to her Idols, some blasts from the past and Broadway!
