Board Gamers Meetup

Soho Tea & Coffee

Please note that this is an informal activity, with no nametags or reception. You'll see other focused on their games, but it's not designed as a social. It is not an official Go Gay DC event, but is shared here as a community courtesy. Go for Board Games. We'll meet to get together for a nice evening of board games! If you have a game that you want to share, then please bring it along! Instead of spending a Monday evening at home, come out and meet some others who also enjoy playing some games! We always have a good time and it's a relaxing way to end your Mondays! Please patronize the coffee shop who is hosting us. It's important for us to support them if we want to be invited back! $1 fee. http://www.meetup.com/DC-Gay-Board-Gamers-Group/

LGBTQ Celebration - Drink Mead, Tour Meadworks, Meet a Presidential Candidate!

*Cross-posting from other Meetups* Let's gather at Charm City Meadworks in Baltimore to celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community and equal rights as human rights! We're creating a safe space of community members and allies, open to all, to drink mead, meet new friends, and tour the facility, with a special guest speaker, Democratic Presidential Candidate Andrew Yang. Meadworks has reserved the space for a two-hour block just for our party, so please arrive at 7. Bottoms Up Bagels will be joining us to sell a variety of handheld foods from 7-9!! RSVP on Facebook, if you like: https://www.facebook.com/events/1141113549382044/ Eventbrite tickets: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/andrew-yang-in-baltimore-tickets-56351984302 For those that are apolitical, come enjoy the mead, the atmosphere of a large LGBTQ gathering, a facility tour, and the quirky/cool accommodations at Charm City Meadworks. If you've never been there before, you need to experience it! We're also looking to add a queer-supportive bagel and coffee company to sell some goodies (TBD in the coming week). For those interested in meeting the candidate, Andrew is an ardent supporter of LGBTQ+ rights and believes sexual orientation and gender identity should be protected classes under the law, receiving all the federal protections afforded under the Constitution and law (platform details below). He'll be available afterwards for a brief "meet and greet" to shake hands and answer questions. ______________________________ Andrew Yang is a serial entrepreneur and the founder of Venture for America, a non-profit that created thousands of jobs across the country, including here in Baltimore. In doing this work, Andrew saw firsthand how the economy and the labor force were evolving and learned that technology threatens one-third of all American jobs. His presidential platform, therefore, seeks to alleviate the growing pains associated with what is the greatest technological and economic shift of our time. The three central pillars of his platform are: (1) The Freedom Dividend, a $1000/month basic income provided to all Americans over the age of 18, no strings attached; (2) Medicare for All, ending the fear of medical bankruptcy while removing one of the largest costs associated with starting a small business; and (3) Human-Centered Capitalism, changing the focus of our economic measurement from GDP to numbers that reflect the well-being of the average American. yang2020.com
