About the High Line
The High Line is both a nonprofit organization and a public park on the West Side of Manhattan. Through our work with communities on and off the High Line, we’re devoted to reimagining the role public spaces have in creating connected, healthy neighborhoods and cities.
Built on a historic, elevated rail line, the High Line was always intended to be more than a park. You can walk through gardens, view art, experience a performance, savor delicious food, or connect with friends and neighbors-all while enjoying a unique perspective of New York City.
About The Generations Project
The Generations Project creates spaces for LGBTQ+ to meet and connect across all generations and backgrounds, to share and preserve our history and tell our stories in our own voices. By revitalizing the oral tradition, TGP provides opportunities for in-person gathering and community-building, ensures the handing down of LGBTQ+ experiences to future generations and uplifts marginalized voices.
Castrata is the Drag Chanteuse of NYC! She is taking what it means to be a drag singer to the next level with her unique voice and glamor to match. She can be found all around the city giving shows on shows on shows. But most importantly, you can find her on all social media @castratanyc.
