Come one, come all, and bring your friends along for a potluck brunch fundraiser to support our very favorite in justice-advocating, culture-shifting, feelings-having lezzy media: Autostraddle! As their team says, in the website’s description, “popularity doesn’t equal profit in this industry for indies like us, which’s why we still rely on volunteers and the financial support of our readers to stay standing.” READERS LIKE US! LET’S HELP!
Whether you’re new to the Philly queer scene or a seasoned queer-about-town, join us for the best of all combinations: queers, Autostraddle, and brunch. 100% of the money raised will go towards the website. 100% of the food and drink contributed will go towards us being happy and very full.
WHAT IS THE EVENT?
This event will do dual duty as both a community meeting-and-greeting space (with food! and cute queers, no doubt) and a fundraiser for Autostraddle.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
Since it’s a potluck, we’re encouraging everyone to bring a dish or drink to share AND $10 to donate. In order to coordinate who is bringing what (so we don’t overlap with our dishes), please email phillyqueerbrunch at gmail. We will then hook you into a Google Doc where people can list what they’ll bring.
All are welcome, but please remember that this space is intended for and will center the experiences of queer and trans women and genderqueer folks.
WHAT ARE THE GOALS OF THIS EVENT?
In the long term, we’re hoping to turn “Queer Philly Brunch” (open to snazzy, punnier titles, if someone has a good one) into a monthly event where we raise money for various Philly-based and national organizations which support queer and trans women and genderqueer folks. These potluck dinners will provide deliciousness and community, but also a space for us to potentially host discussions and workshops pertinent to our community, soliciting input from everyone as we go.
