- Wouldn’t it be awesome if there were a way to funnel money directly from the government treasury into FIERCE’s bank account?
- Is it possible to be radical while paying taxes?
- Can a married straight couple be allies with LGBTQ youth?
The answer to all three questions is a resounding, “Hell yeah!”

On Monday, August 10th, nearly 30 people gathered at FIERCE for our first-ever interactive West Village Walking Tour for Donors and Allies. The evening was a huge success, bringing together active members, donors, allies, Board members, FIERCE alumni, and staff, to learn more about LGBTQ history in the West Village, particularly the often-forgotten contributions of LGBTQ people of color, and how gentrification has impacted the neighborhood over the years. We shared personal anecdotes that enriched our living history, celebrated how far we’ve come and rallied around our continued fight for a West Village that is safe for all, 24 hours a day.
