Easton Mountain Retreat Center

    The Easton Mountain Retreat Center is an LGBTQ retreat center in Greenwich, New York. Part of Easton's mission as a non-profit organization is to work towards peace, nonviolence, and social justice and they are interested in cultivating the future leaders of America's gay rights movement.

Later this month, they will be holding their eighth consecutive summer program for LGBTQ youth, a four-day arts camp and leadership summit called Arts in the Woods. This weekend, they will also be holding a weekend-long LGBTQ music festival called Out in the Woods to fundraise for scholarships for disenfranchised young people to attend the camp.

John Stasio, Founder of Easton Mountain, and Wil Fisher, their Director of Youth Programming, join us to tell us more.

The Hyde Collection - Wiawaka Holiday House

    When we decided to come north to broadcast live, we knew we wanted the folks from the Wiawaka Holiday House on the show. We certainly wanted them to share their amazing story and history with us. But, we also just get a kick out of saying Wiawaka.

Wiawaka is one of the oldest and longest continuously operated retreats for women in America. Today, Wiawaka continues as a summer retreat and on July 14th, they will be hosting a “Hyde Family Fun Day.”

Christine Dixon is the Executive Director of the Wiawaka Holiday House.
