Come one, come all, and bring your friends along for a potluck brunch fundraiser to support Philadelphia FIGHT—one of Philly’s most incredible advocacy and health centers for folks living with HIV/AIDS, and their communities.
Whether you’re new to the Philly queer scene or a seasoned queer-about-town, join us for the best of all combinations: queers, politics, and brunch. 100% of the money raised will go towards the unbelievable range of services provided by FIGHT. 100% of the food and drink contributed will go towards us being happy and very full.
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 Philadelphia FIGHT (check out their website: http://fight.org/). We’re also going to be combining this month’s brunch with a *~*ZINE-MAKING PARTY*~* in truly classic queer fashion. We’re especially focusing on Philly FIGHT for its work with youth in the Youth Health Empowerment Project (Y-HEP), and as such will be talking and thinking about what it is and was like to be queer and trans youths ourselves. Accordingly, the theme of our zine will be “BABY QUEERS.”
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
Since it’s a potluck, we’re encouraging everyone to bring a dish or drink to share AND $10 to donate. That being said, we want to make PQB accessible for EVERYONE, so if you can’t bring a donation of $10 and/or a dish/drink to share, we will still welcome you with open queer arms. In order to coordinate who is bringing what (so we don’t overlap with our dishes), PLEASE SIGN UP with what you’re bringing on this spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1MNo5VTyaEBkCMWr83RlHnOIlF__7HGBR9QVasurPKdU/edit?usp=sharing
EVERYONE is welcome at PQB! We do center the experiences of queer and trans women and genderqueer folks, but we invite all folks in the queer community to come out and have fun with us.
