This Week, I Am…
Busy with all things Pride at Pantheon! ICYMI: I posted a Pride 2022 open thread last week, outlining everything we’re doing at Pantheon for Pride + asking for folx to share the Pride activities they’re involved in. If you’re organizing or participating in something for Pride, tell us about it by replying to my post!
Also, we have a virtual Pride celebration on Wednesday, June 29 (see more info below) from 3-5pm ET/12-2pm PT that is open to our entire community. Come celebrate Pride Pantheon style with the below activities:
- 3-3:45pm ET/12-12:45pm PT: LGBTQIA+ Inclusivity + Awareness Workshop with Amanda Cole (she/her) of Plexus LGBT + Allied Chamber of Commerce (time for Q&A at the end of the training)
- 3:45-4:30pm ET/12:45-1:30pm PT: Drag Bingo + a Costume Contest (come dressed up for Pride and extra credit for dressing like your favorite Queero (Queer Hero)) with Pollo Del Mar (for pronouns, refer to this tweet)
- 4:30-5pm ET/1:30-2pm PT: DJ’d Pride Social Hour
- Interested in joining the event? Let me know, and I’ll send you the calendar invite!
