Adult Queer Prom

We had fun at our first Adult Queer Prom, where we raised nearly $7000 to keep up the momentum. Special thanks to Arcana for hosting us, Dale Wolf (aka Sir Cock) our MC, and all of our competitors for the Prom Monarch Crown! We especially appreciate our business sponsors: Schoolhouse of Wonder, Kehilla Synagogue, SHIFT NC, QORDS, LGBT Center at NC State, SEEDS Community Garden, Accent Hardwood Flooring, Safe Schools NC, and Calvary UMC, which continues to serve as our home for more than a decade. Hope to see you at the next one!

Fabufest was a blast.

What an amazing weekend! Thank you to Radical Healing, Maya Little, and Durham City Council Members Jillian Johnson and Javiera Caballero for sharing your skills and wisdom with us, especially your skills on the dance floor. And thanks especially to Hillsborough United Church of Christ for hosting us. We hope to see everyone at Hangout March 9!
