As Madonna said, "Come join the party..."
Mingle with fabulous LGBTQ+ folk and allies. Bring your friends and meet new people from all over the world.
Go Gay DC leader TJ Flavell will be there to greet you. In addition to the late Queen Mum's birthday, Meghan Markle's birthday, and President Obama's birthday, this day just happens to be TJ's birthday, so birthday cake will be served.
In lieu of a birthday gift or card, please bring a nonperishable food item(s) for Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC), the community leader in providing and promoting dignified access to nutritious food for those in need. As the primary food bank and pantry in Arlington, AFAC serves over 2,300 local families every week. More information on what's needed is at http://www.afac.org/donate-food/ Please feel free to bring as much food (cereal, canned goods,etc) as you wish, as it will be picked up that night and delivered to AFAC.
Casual attire is fine. Enjoy the cash or credit bar drinks. Just ask the bartender what the happy hour specials are.
Feel free to invite all your friends on Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/events/2357367417683867/
