This concert is a benefit for Queer Youth Assemble whose mission is to "bring joy and autonomy to all queer youth under 25 in the United States and its territories".

2023 is the 40th anniversary of "Everything Possible", the song that Fred Small wrote in response to the request from a two women who wanted a lullaby they could sing to their child. Fred will be joining us on this song and will talk a little about the history of the song—and the new children's book coming out soon with illustrations for the song by Alison Brown.
