For millennia, music and poetry have played crucial roles in preserving history and bonding communities. Today, messages go around the world in the blink of an eye, but storytelling through song continues to be an integral way of informing and celebrating each other.

Queer women in the arts will be showcased July 28 at Stonewall National Museum. Organizers are hosting “I’ve Got the Music In Me,” a night of music, poetry, dance and more featuring women.

“Music has been an important way for lesbians to bond,” Stonewall Executive Director Robert Kesten said. “Going back to the early 1970s and the festivals in Michigan, and the important women artists from Holly Near, Melissa Etheridge, to the dozens of others who have climbed the charts and enhanced our lives.”

The event will also have refreshments, a live auction, and artwork from various female artists. The night will be hosted by comedienne and local radio personality Natalie Tyler.

“It’s about showcasing different types of artistic skills that women are bringing,” she said.

Stonewall has lots of events throughout the year, but adding Tyler to the mix promises to bring an extra level of excitement to the evening.

“The location is larger. Having me as the emcee will be a twist and bring more liveliness to it.”

Also different from many Stonewall events, this will be in the main auditorium in the ArtServe building at 1350 E. Sunrise Ave. in Fort Lauderdale. It’s the same building as Stonewall but a bigger room that’s more suited to events like “I’ve Got the Music In Me.”

The event is free and begins at 6:30 p.m. For more details, visit
