EXTRA AMO / INFO

NYC’s Cabaret Law
*Created in 1926 to halt interracial dancing in jazz clubs

*Giuliani used to shutter gay bars and decimate culture.

*I love to dance and it should not be a crime.

*Fewer than 100 licensed spaces in all five boroughs

*Arbitrary enforcement creates discrimination today.

*Social dancing is a fundamental cultural expression.

*There are no legal community spaces to dance in most neighborhoods in NYC and fewer than 100 licensed spaces in all five boroughs.

*Racist, homophobic, discriminatory intent and legacy.
