What do you get when you cross AWP, Lambda Literary, your LGBTQ Writer’s Caucus, and free drink tickets? You got it! It’s the Annual LGBTQ Writer’s Queer Mixer! But we need your help! In order for this event to run, we need to raise $500 by JANUARY 15th 2019!!
Held in partnership with Lambda Literary, the Queer Mixer is an AWP offsite social event that brings together LGBTQ people and allies. The goal of this event is to provide a space for us to have a drink, make a friend, and — hopefully — create a lasting community.
This year’s mixer will be held at CC Slaughters Nightclub and Lounge — Portland’s Premier Gay NightClub. This venue is 0.8 miles from the Convention Center (just across the Steel Bridge). The mixer will start at 8 p.m. on Thursday, March 28th, right after the LGBTQ Writer’s Caucus meeting.
In order to make the Queer Mixer happen, we’re officially launching our LGBTQ Caucus Queer Mixer fundraiser. Please help us create a space where we can gather at AWP in March to celebrate queerness, LGBTQ-ness, trans-ness, nonbinary-ness, and all the things that make us the amazing, inclusive community that we are.
Can’t donate at this time? There are plenty of other ways you can help. You can always share the fundraiser on Facebook, Twitter, and any social media hub that’s home to your queer writer friends.
Thanks for any support you can provide. As we enter this holiday season, please remember, you are part of our writing family, and you are loved. Please take care of yourselves and each other.
