Wow, there’s only 13 VIP tickets left for #LushUs! VIP ticket holders get access to a special VIP reception with Mary herself, from 6pm – 7pm. The VIP reception includes a dedicated VIP cash bar, delicious appetizers from Root Table restaurant, and, of course, the chance to meet Mary. VIP guests also have a reserved seating section, front and center, in the Great Hall for the show. These will probably sell out before Saturday, so don’t miss out on a great way to support queer artists and #GayCityArts!
“Lush Us” is the big fundraiser/concert happening this coming Saturday, February 6th at Seattle’s Town Hall. It’s a showcase and a fundraiser for Gay City Health Project and their terrific Gay City Arts program which features both visual art on the walls at Gay City’s offices but also performing arts in their Calamus Auditorium space.
And, Mr. Strangeways is particularly fond of Gay City Arts since he tried to launch pretty much the exact same thing at the old Seattle LGBT Center with Q-Arts back in the mid/late 2000s before the Center went belly up due to gross mismanagement. It behooves you to attend this event and support this very worthy community enterprise that supports queer art of all kinds. It’s the kind of event we’d have LOVED to have media sponsored but….no body bothered to ask!
How lazy of them!
