Drum Circle #3 at DeFrank Center

  • Dec 7, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Two previous drum circles at The Billy DeFrank LGBT Community Center went very well with good attendance. Primarily we get drummers from our group, but some attendees find out about it 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. 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 next to the building, and more parking is available on the street. The Alameda has un-metered parking limited to two hours. Watch out for parking restrictions in the residential areas.

Info about the Center, from the website:

Mission Statement
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 easiest entrance is around the back of the building from the parking lot (no stairs, no ramps). 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 be gay to go into the LGBT Center.

    It was a solid and cohesive group of drummers. We had a very good time and finished at about 3pm.
