The Spectrum/ Dreamhouse is a LGBTQIA space initiated in 2011. For seven years, we have provided artists, performers, musicians and innovators a platform to cultivate and share their work. The Spectrum is currently run by Gage ofthe Boone, Danny Taylor, Elan/a June Margolis and a rotating cast of dedicated activists, creators, visionaries and guest curators.
We are currently facing eviction and losing our home and have been grateful for the immense response. We have had a few different possibilities open up, and while our immediate future is uncertain we are putting this fundraiser together to support our move out process and legal fees as well as to make sure we can still create events for you in other spaces.
SPECTRUM STORY: While sometimes known for parties and events, The Spectrum is dedicated to creative endeavors, classes, and workshops for our extended queer family. Initially a volunteer run space, we are now able to provide work opportunities in an effort to redistribute resources.
The Spectrum is currently facing it's second eviction from it's second location at The Dreamhouse at 1022 Wyckoff Avenue in Ridgewood, NY.
We have been overwhelmed by the response from our supporters and the outpouring of love and offers to keep the Dream(house) Alive.
We are happy to share that we are currently exploring some unexpected viable options for immediate relocation. In order to sustainably occupy a new space and/or establish a mobile endeavor we need funds.
We are attempting to raise $33,333 (or more) for costs related to eviction, relocation, re-establishing our business and generously supporting our (more than 25 person) staff.
