Kick off LGBTQ+ Pride Month with The Ranzo Boys and the Seaport Museum! In this musical program, Lafayette Matthews and Jules Peiperl will explore queer narratives in maritime music. Through a mix of traditional and contemporary chanteys and ballads the speakers will sing engaging songs and share stories that celebrate the LGBTQ+ community and its underrepresented connections to New York City’s waterfront.
