There’s always fun, crazy bar events and music shows and drag stuff and theater/stage shows to go see on any given night, but occasionally you need to celebrate your community. There are a couple of big events scheduled for Thursday, February 17 that pay honor to the work of LGBT folks and the good they bring to us all. Gay City is celebrating the one year anniversary of the Gay City LGBT Library with an open house/reception from 6pm to 8pm at Kaladi Brothers Coffee located inside the Gay City offices at 511 East Pike Street. Sarah Toce and Kate West from The Seattle Lesbian will be on hand to pay tribute to Gay City and the library, which is an invaluable service for the community. And, we should all be appreciative, whether or not we use the library, that Gay City rescued the library from the ruins of the old Seattle LGBT Center. Gay City stepped up to the plate and became the dominant community leader after the Center imploded. Huge kudos to Gay City, their staff and the amazing work they do with gay men’s health issues, substance abuse, community education and leadership.
You can also attend (or, do both, if you time it right!) the special screening of the locally made documentary, Bullying, Gender and The Church at Northwest Film Forum, 1515 12th Avenue, on Capitol Hill, and attend the after party at Lobby Bar. Presented by OUTview Online and GLBT Yellow Pages and benefiting The Trevor Project and GLSEN, the documentary by Michael K. Scott, features interviews with Jesse Archer (Four Letter Word), Jallen Rix (author of Ex Gay, No Way), Joseph Fenity (Sirius OutQ) and Lincoln Rose (Seattle Based, Trans Acitivist), and a music score by Chris Salvatore. The screening starts at 7pm and will feature a Q&A afterwards, with the after party at Lobby Bar to immediately follow. For ticket info, check out the Facebook page.
