The Studio Theater has hosted LGBT events before, such as a performance of the play "Another American: Asking and Telling" by Marc Wolf (now a film), in 2000, the year of the most recent "March on Washington". HRC had an "event" at RFK Stadium that year, where I ran into Keith Meinhold. These are very long memories.
Lambda's appearance seems timely given President Obama's recent statement on gay marriage and the flap over the Virginia legislature's treatment of Tracy Thorne.
I didn't learn of this happening until I saw the Washington Blade Saturday at Landmark's E Street Theater. Moral: Keep up with the Blade.
