Philly Queer Brunch
Sunday December 14 2014, 1:00pm
Come one, come all, and bring your friends along for a potluck brunch fundraiser to support Black and Pink, an incredible (and incredibly necessary) organization supporting queer and trans people impacted by criminalization, incarceration, the American prison system, and the prison industrial complex more broadly.
100% of the money raised will go towards supporting the work done by Black and Pink to support, advocate for, and build community among currently and formerly incarcerated LGBTQ people, their friends and family, and their communities. 100% of the food contributed will go towards us being happy and very full.
This month, we're moving brunch to William Way LGBT Community Center, which has GENEROUSLY provided us with a warm and welcoming space. ♥
WHAT IS THE EVENT?
Philly Queer Brunch is a monthly queer potluck fundraiser benefiting a different queer, trans, and otherwise justice-oriented organization each month! This month, we're raising money for Black and Pink. In the spirit of the holidays, this event will serve specifically as a Black and Pink Holiday Card-Making Party, where we'll make and send holiday cards of support and love to currently incarcerated queer and trans people.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
Since it's a potluck, we're encouraging everyone to bring a dish or drink (non-alcoholic, please respect the rules of William Way!!) to share AND $10 to donate. In exchange, you'll get all-you-can-eat and all-you-can-drink brunch, card-making supplies galore, and great company.
In order to coordinate who is bringing what (so we don't overlap with our dishes), PLEASE SIGN UP with what you're bringing https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1MNo5VTyaEBkCMWr83RlHnOIlF__7HGBR9QVasurPKdU/edit#gid=0
EVERYONE is welcome at PQB! We hope especially to create a safe and welcoming space for queer and trans women and genderqueer folks, but we invite ALL folks to come join us.
Please also note: donations of ANY size are extremely welcome. If $10 isn't feasible for you right now, we would still love to have you join us! And if you're able to give more, Black & Pink could use your support.
