Time to get FIERCE!
Well, everyone should be fierce but this call for fierceness is more for the under 24 year old crowd….it’s a call for performers (and fans to attend) this year’s GENDER FIERCE an LGBTQ Youth Talent Show that’s happening this upcoming Sunday, November 18th at Fred Wildlife Refuge on Capitol Hill.
Produced by Lifelong and their Health Education and Youth Outreach (HEYO) program, Gender Fierce is a fun event for queer youth of all ages but obviously ideal for the under 21 crowd who can’t access bars and clubs for entertainment.
It’s all a terrific showcase for young performers who also can’t access most options to get performance experience since the majority of those kinds of opportunities tend to be in bars.
It’s not too late to sign up to perform; more info and links below.
And, as for tickets, you don’t need them! It’s a free event…but do remember this is an event for those under 24. Though we’re GUESSING if you’re 25 and attending with your 20 year old date, they probably wouldn’t throw you out.
Join Lifelong on November 18 for Gender Fierce: an LGBTQ youth talent show.
Gender Fierce strives to empower the LGBTQ youth, by giving them a platform to showcase their most authentic selves to their Seattle community.
With the current administration and Department of Health and Human Services attempting to undermine the human rights of transgender people, this event is more important than ever.
Gender Fierce is a place to come together as a community and show that Seattle is a united group that stands up against LGBTQ discrimination and injustice.
Date: Sunday, November 18, 2018
Time: Doors open at 6pm & the show runs 7 – 9pm.
Location: Fred Wildlife Refuge (128 Belmont Ave E, Seattle, WA 98122)
Cost: Gender Fierce is FREE. Come and support the LGBTQ youth!
