The Rainbow Connection”

Welcome queers and allies! We have explored the uniqueness of our intersectional experiences in our vibrant LGBTQIA+ community. What are the things that the varied letters in our alphabet soup of identities have in common? What connects us? We’ve explored boundless concepts of “Love” and “chosen family”. We stick together and stick up for each other when in need. Saturday June 4th 2022, we are celebrating our commonalities and what drives us to unite, through all the flavors of life, with our vastly different expressions of gender, relationship style, sexual orientation and its intersections with class, race, culture, and generation. 

We have essentially found it. “The Rainbow Connection” ——the lovers, the dreamers and us…

As the world cautiously opens up, we convene, at the very least, through our art, to embrace and tell our collective story. 

Masks recommended at this indoor/outdoor event.
