UPCOMING EVENTS

COME OUT, COME OUT!
Thursday, October 26, 6:30 - 9:30 p.m. at SUMCSummit on 16th UMC is proud to present another year of "COME OUT, COME OUT!" as we celebrate coming out day and allow the LGBTQIA+ community to celebrate openly and honestly in a space that is welcoming to all people! We have an open mic for spoken word, song, dance, jokes, story telling, mime, drag, coming out stories, etc. We are thrilled to have some fabulous special guests including: Mikayla Denise (local drag celebrity), Mr. Teddy Martin (International recording artist), Luster Dela Virgion (drag king icon), Michael Hatcher (local soul singer), and many more!!!

This year we are starting a bit earlier because we want to include food-- more like dinner than snacks! It is awesome if you want to bring your favorite brownie or pasta salad or MAC-n-CHEESE (hint: Ms. Angel) OR chips and soda -- whatever you like.-- There will be chx, tofu and egg salad and a big ol' pot of chili. Even if you don't cook bring your laughter and be prepared to feel the joy!
