San Francisco LGBT Center Board Party

The SF LGBT Center's Board of Directors invite you to kick-off the Pride Season at the Board Pride Party! Wednesday, June 10, from 6-9 pm.

Guests will be able to mingle with Center board members and supporters, take a tour of the Center, watch amazing belly dance performances, play interactive games, enjoy an open bar and hors d’oeuvres, and dance like everyone is watching!

Live Cartooning with Elizabeth Beier!!

Elizabeth Beier, a local cartoonist, can make a personalized portrait for you within ten minutes, and also capture your answer to the question of why the Center's work is important. You can keep the originals of the drawings, and she will also compile them to create a web comic about the work that still needs to be done to ensure LGBT health, justice and strength. Beier honed her skills in this kind of cartooning while drawing stories for her book We Belong: Stories and Portraits from the Lexington Club. See more about her at www.elizabethdrewyou.com.

Lexington Club Tribute - Comics Reading

RSVP Here: https://www.facebook.com/events/987417414614542/

Attention friends and fans of the Lexington Club: all that art I've been doing about the Lex, including paintings, comics, and interviews, will be coming together into a real book. At this event I'll present and read some of the comics from a projector, the book & some art will be available for purchase, and it we can all gather and reminisce. 

I'm also reaching out to other local artists to take part! Direct message me if you are interested! Mars Adams will be bringing some one-of-a-kind Lex-themed hats -- SO excited about that. I want this to be a place for the community to come together!

For those who haven't been there yet, Mission: Comics & Art is just about a block away from the Lex and it's another amazing local small business -- thank you so much to Leef Smith for agreeing to host this event!
