“Potato is always looking for dog sitters and play dates, feel free to slide into her DMs ;)”
Our summer issue is a broad look at traveling around and about this whole weird place, for all the right or wrong or baffling reasons. Submissions are open until July 22nd!
Let’s go to the Garfield Park Conservatory!
It’s $2/person and more information about the Conservatory can be found here: https://www.garfieldgardensconservatory.org/.
Saturn Returned is a new happy hour gathering for queer women age 30 and up. Meet people, make friends, chat with a cutie, be home by 10pm.
The first Saturn Returned was a big success, so we’re back and ready to turn up! This time we’re got Robinette Jones on the turntables, and we’re raffling off a sexy goodie bag courtesy of Babeland! All raffle proceeds go to the Yellowhammer Abortion Fund.
New York offers a variety of queer events, but it can be hard to find a party that starts before 10pm — most of us have work in the morning and need our beauty rest. When you do get out to the party, you typically encounter a gaggle of fresh-faced adorable gays who don’t remember when MTV played music videos. Bless them, but it can be alienating for us more seasoned folks.
This party is for any queer-identified women (and queer-ID’d folks who date us) over the age of 30! That includes lesbian, bi, pan, queer, trans, non-binary, gender expansive, butch, femme, etc and anywhere in between.
Themed parties: Love them or hate them? Either way, happy Friday! Get in these comments and let’s talk about it!
“Baby Glum, definitely. Maybe to the tune of ‘Baby Shark’?”
For the San Francisco Dyke March, we will be meeting up at Dolores Park to hang and celebrate pride! Bring any snacks or beverages you want to share. Look for the Onyx Team’s 2019 A-Camp flag (a large black flag with animals printed on it).
“I have only been to a couple other Pride parades since then, partly because I still get skittish around big crowds, and partly because I just want to be in the air conditioning, but truth be told, I’ve probably got enough room inside me now to throw fifty pride parades.”
Honestly, being single rules. Let’s discuss.
“Happy to see Lost and Delirious finally getting all the recognition it deserves after its cruel snub on the dead lesbians of television list!”
“My body, my home” is an ACLU fundraiser organized in response to the recent passage of laws strictly limiting abortion rights in Alabama, Georgia, Missouri, and Ohio.
We invite the artists to explore the idea of personal autonomy and what it has meant to them- what does it mean to have the government give you “rights” over your own body? What does it mean when they are taken away? The event will be a series of dance and spoken word performances followed by a raffle, mingling, and lots of snacks.
The event is organized by queer contemporary dance project spacejunkdance. You can check out their webside at www.spacejunkdance.com or their instagram at @spacejunkdance.
Come join us at 5pm on Saturday, August 17th for food and drinks, good conversation, good art, and a good cause. Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door.
Also, if anyone on here is interested in presenting any art they’ve been working on or adding something to one of our raffle baskets, let us know!
“What I post on the internet has to be what I can be proud of in person. That just happens to include my titties.”
It’s Pride month; have you heard? Have you danced in the streets, wearing a rainbow flag, surrounded by topless women, shouting your queerness and here-ness, maybe honking a horn or ringing a bell? Here’s hoping!
Tis the season to celebrate Pride by wearing rainbow gradient t-shirts that let the world know that love is love, love wins, pride unites, equality wins, love makes a family, it’s all love, we need more love, everybody is free to love and love unites!!!
I want us to have a giant queer brainstorming session about how to bring the focus of Pride back to it’s origins.
“Rosanna Arquette as Cherie Jaffe is *definitely* Mommi.”
Looking for more queer community in the Bay Area and want a sober space to celebrate pride?? Come join us at Heritage Park in Palo Alto for a potluck style picnic. We will be setting up in the local park and will have games and music. Check out the link to our original event page here: https://www.meetup.com/Book-Club-Dropouts/events/262244360/ . Hope to see you there!
Hi! Join us for a fun hang out to celebrate Pride month before the big festivities begin the week after. We will be out on the back patio at El Rio for a few hours before we go see the pride show put on by Infinite Wrench. This show will feature plays written and performed by queer and trans members of the troupe, and is guaranteed to be a fun time. Join us at the bar, at the show, or at both! Be forewarned about infinite wrench, it will sell out for sure, so if interested, make sure to get your ticket ASAP!
