GLITS—which stands for Gays and Lesbians Living in a Transgender Society—is working to preserve the environment that makes the People’s Beach an inclusive oasis.

This stretch of Riis Park on the Rockaway peninsula, long sheltered by an abandoned hospital that affords queer beachgoers a measure of communal privacy, could be transformed by re-development plans.

GLITS founder Ceyenne Doroshow details the group’s efforts in this AudioFiles feature from reporter Tasha Sandoval.
