WHO WE ARE
Last Call is a multiracial collective of queer artists, activists, and archivists. Drawn together by the closing of the last remaining dyke bar, Last Call creates innovative, multi-platform performances, events, and digital media that document and interpret neglected queer history, creating connections between those who lived this history and those who have much at stake if it is forgotten. We conjure up intergenerational gathering places where the movement for queer liberation is carried forward.
There are four interwoven components to Last Call: (1) a digital archive of full-length interviews; (2) a podcast series to cull these interviews into curated stories; (3) live performance that honors these stories; and (4) community events that bring together queer people across lines of race, class, gender-identity and generational difference. Last Call was founded by Rachel Lee, Sara Pic, and Bonnie Gabel. Last Call is co-directed by indee mitchell and Bonnie Gabel.
Last Call is thankful for the support of MAP Fund with funds from Creative Capital, Platforms Fund, the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation, The LGBT Community Center of New Orleans, Dancing Grounds, the Distillery at the Contemporary Arts Center, Alternate Roots, The Network of Ensemble Theaters and our community. Last Call is fiscally sponsored by The National Performance Network.
