Massive Community Calendar Update

We are less than two weeks out from Pride, and I realized... I have absolutely nothing on here about Pride events! And then I went searching, and well... I'm keeping my mouth shut.  For the next two weeks, here are some amazing things going on!

Flash Action! Queer folks are heading (back) out to Maineville this evening (6/2 at 9:00pm) to stand in solidarity against hate at Tabby's American Grill, where an alleged hate crime occurred last week! We've gotten some positive response from the bar, and we're looking to stand with them and make this a peaceful queer bomb! Check out the coverage we got at Towleroad!

Milk: Summer Underground returns tomorrow, Wednesday the 3rd. Cincinnati's experiment in fabulous music and great dancing had a strong turn out last week -- probably around 80 folks! The organizer said that, from what he's heard, he expects this week to be even bigger! Make sure you check it out and add MILK to your Facebook friends!

And for the biggest, gay party night of all... THIS FRIDAY the 5th! 
As for next weekend, I'm going to just hit them real quick:
  • Friday, June 12th, 5:00pm-9:00pm: "Pride in Our Party," hosted by the Ohio Democratic LGBT Caucus, at Below Zero Lounge, with honorable hosts Rep. Steve Driehaus, Ohio AG Richard Cordray, Ohio Treasure Kevin Boyce, County Commissioner Todd Portune, Rep. Connie Pillich, and Rep. Denise Driehaus
  • Friday, June 12th, 8:30p: Rainbow Candlelight Vigil across the Purple People Bridge, organizers are planning a mini-march with groups forming at both the north and south ends of the Purple People Bridge and marching to the middle; at the end, the group will march together south towards Kentucky (more information later)
  • Saturday, June 13th, 3:00pm-9:00pm: Pride Festival at Hoffner Park in Northside
  • Sunday, June 14th, 12:00pm-1:00pm: Pre-Pride Parade Rally at Burnet Woods
  • Sunday, June 14th, 1:00pm-3:00pm: Pride Parade from Burnet Woods in Clifton to Northside
  • Sunday, June 14th, 1:00pm-7:00pm: Pride Festival at Hoffner Park in Northside
There you go folks!

Realizing "Pride" will be a great celebration, but will there be energy left to protest the Mormons and their support of Prop 8, when their choir performs here at Riverbend on Thursday, 6/18?
