The new honorary board members will host a Kickstarter Launch Party for Honest Accomplice 7-10 PM March 5 at the Antler Beer & Wine Dispensary (123 Allen Street) in New York's Bowery neighborhood. There is a $10 suggested donation for the event, which features drink specials, raffles and prizes; visit www.honestaccomplice.org for reservations.

Honest Accomplice’s Kickstarter campaign will help fund its 2015-16 season, which includes a college tour of The Birds and the Bees: Unabridged. The second season will also include events for Queer Women and Trans People in the Performing Arts, a group hoping to "increase the diversity of representations of queer women and trans people on stage."

Honest Accomplice Theatre is a non-profit with a mission to "generate dialogue and stimulate change by focusing on topics that are often silenced, seen as shameful, or portrayed as one-dimensional."
