Angels at the Front: A Kickback with the Border Angels
Hosted by Monica Bocanegra • Poetry from Flavia Mora • A discussion with Gabrielle Scharaga and Britt Atilano from Border Angels • Trans asylum stories from VisibiliT • Music by DJ La Femme Papi • Catered tacos from Castro Republic • And a donation drive for Casa Arcoiris, the LGBTQI+ shelter in Tijuana
Color Bloq is collaborating with the Bay Area chapter of Border Angels to bring you a special night of sharing, learning, and building for our LGBTQI+ migrant family. This event is free and open to the public. We want you to enjoy a great time with community.
Come and mingle with music and food for a casual reception on the third floor beginning at 5:00pm. Strut will also be offering HIV / STI testing and treatment, PrEP signups, and more, on the second floor.
Programming (poetry, discussion, etc) begins on the third floor at 6:30pm.
At the conclusion of our event at 8pm, make your way to QBar (just a few doors down from Strut), the only intentionally inclusive bar in the Castro.
WHEN: Thursday, September 19, from 5pm to 8pm
WHERE: Strut, 3rd Floor, 470 Castro Street, San Francisco (map)
ATTIRE: Casual; come as you are
ACCESSIBILITY: Entrance and lobby are at street level. The building has three floors; there is a stairwell with handrails and a wheelchair accessible elevator. There are 26 stairs from the lobby to the 2nd floor and 48 stairs from the lobby to the 3rd floor.
