Our first drum circle at The Billy DeFrank LGBT Community Center went very well with 19 in attendance. Mostly it was drummers from our group, but there was a small handful of people attending from the DeFrank newsletter and flyers. We'll have the main hall (again) which can accommodate a very large group.
Details: Mostly open drumming with a small amount of activities and rhythm sharing for fun. Chairs will be available or bring your own favorite, or a stool if you need one. Please bring as many drums and percussion instruments as you can for sharing. OK to bring snacks and beverages for your own consumption or sharing, but no alcohol. We have the hall at 1pm and we will be able to get started at about 1:15. There is a small parking lot, so most of the parking will be on the street. The Alameda has un-metered parking limited to two hours hours. Watch out for parking restrictions in the residential areas.
Info about the Center, from the www.deFrank.org website:
Through collaboration and unity, the Billy DeFrank LGBT Community Center strives to provide a diverse platform for our community to meet, learn, be challenged and grow.
The Billy DeFrank LGBT Community Center strives to be the community's premier resource hub and a recognized leader in promoting health, strength, diversity and inclusiveness.
Other Stuff: The Center is only asking to "pass the hat" in order to use the space. I'll ask everyone to contribute $2. The money goes to the Center. Through the Center's newsletter, members of the Center and members of the LGBT community will be invited to participate. (Please bring extra drums and instruments to share with our new LGBT friends.)
Concerned about going to a gay place?: No one is going to assume that you are gay or lesbian. Think of it this way: you don't have to be sick to go into a hospital; you don't have to be religious to enter a church; you don't have to buy anything when you go into a store; you don't have to be gay to go into the LGBT Center.
