Assistant Needed

Lorraine Austin, glass artist and president of Snake Oil Glassworks is also the glassblower for the New York Renaissance Faire in Tuxedo Park, where we run a sattelite opertion for the run of the Faire, making glass and performing demonstrations for the fairegoers. We are looking for a glassblower's assistant to help out during the Faire this summer. You'd need to have some familiarity and practice with off-hand glassblowing, and not mind working in front of a crowd,dressed oddly. The Faire runs for nine weeks from Aug 3- Sept 30 this time around. We are looking for someone who would be available a couple of days during the week for production work and one or both days of the weekends to assist at demos while the Faire is open. Overnight accommodations in the Faire campground are a possibility. If any one is interested, you may contact me here or at the studio for details.

The National Center for Transgender Equality is the nation’s leading social justice advocacy organization winning life-saving change for transgender people.

The NCTE is a national social justice organization devoted to ending discrimination

and violence against transgender people through education and advocacy on national issues of importance to transgender people. For over a decade, NCTE has been at the forefront of changing laws, policies and society to improve the lives of transgender Americans. From their early beginnings educating staff about who they were, to the milestone inclusion of transgender people in the president's State of the Union speech a decade later, and to the dozens of policy wins that lined the pathway in between--NCTE has been a strategic force in their movement toward equality.

By empowering transgender people and our allies to educate and influence policymakers and others, NCTE facilitates a strong and clear voice for transgender equality in our nation's capital and around the country.
