International Autostraddle Summer Brunch Weekend Is August 23 and 24!

Brunch! For folks like me who cannot prepare eggs without feeling gross but love eating them, like to drink with every meal, and/or enjoy being raucous specifically in the morning, brunch is the most important meal of the day. Luckily, the only thing that makes eggs benny with hashbrowns and toast even better is a bunch of really adorable new and old faces coming into your life to love you until the end of days. And that, my friend, is why what the world needs now is International Autostraddle Summer Brunch Day – an annual tradition in which queers from our amazing community across the globe unite to break bread and talk shit. And lucky you, it’s almost here!

This year, International Autostraddle Brunch Day(s) will be on August 23 and 24.

You may recognize Autostraddlers from such meet-ups as the one you went to instead of your local pride parade, the one that helped you wait in line on Record Store Day, and the ones we hosted just because. All of those were awesome, and 100% of them ended in food and/or fun for all. (We have the pics to prove it!)

To host a meet-up in your city, you can submit the event details through our handy-dandy events portal right meow. All you’ll need are a set date and time, a Facebook event page link for RSVPs, and a description. You can even click here to download a custom image for your Facebook event!

Hosting can be as involved or as simple as you want – you can make a reservation for 60 at your local hipster bar (I know from experience), host a potluck which will afterward feed you for two months (I know from experience), gather a bunch of strangers in a dog park and bring beer (I know from experience), or even just use the entire event to make a big deal about your own birthday (like I said).

You don’t have to host to bring the magic, though. You can check out the meet-up calendar at any time to find a brunch situation near you, and we’ll be posting a big ol’ roundup of the entire worldwide brunch situation in advance of the big day.

In the meantime, you can find other brunch addicts and follow this amazing and unique movement on Twitter with the hashtag #AutostraddleBrunch. Oh, and you might wanna head out and get a new pair of shades. Your future’s lookin’ pretty damn bright and covered in champagne about now.

    Southern England at all? I’m in Portsmouth but I could travel to London or Brighton. Any further than that and it gets a bit too pricey </3

    Anytime there is a meetup I keep hoping someone esle is in the Southern Oregon area. I know a great brunch place in Ashland. Does anyone live in the area?

    If there are any Western Australian straddlers who are interested I’ll totally organise something! (Warning: I am a terrible organiser, I’ll probably just name a cafe in Fremantle and freak out that nobody’s going to turn up.)

      I’d really like to go to the Oxford one too but a facebook page would be kind of handy, just so I could try recognise people.

      I’d probably just show up and be to shy to ask who is there from autostraddle though. XD

    London (UK), anyone? I’m terrified of hosting, but if anyone suggests a place, I’m there! (I know there are a bunch of London straddlers!)

    If there are any straddlers in Buenos Aires, I’d love to meet up! Brunch isn’t really a Thing here, but we could make something work 😀
