Hey, we're throwing a Pride party with Wells Fargo and we want you to come. Head out to 111 Minna on Tuesday, June 21 from 7-8:30 pm to get your Pride on with a few cocktails, tasty light bites courtesy of Small Potatoes Catering and beats by DJ Dylan Mahoney. Marke Bieschke, local writer and author of the new book Queer: The Ultimate LGBT Guide For Teens, will also be in the house. The whole soiree's our kick-off to Pride weekend and also a benefit for the nationwide anti-bullying program Make it Better, whose mission is to raise gay teens' self-esteem and confidence.
Come have a cocktail, get your groove on and support a great cause.
