Volunteer Queer – May 23, 2017
New opportunities to volunteer queer, including Folsom Street Fair, For Colored Girls 2017, and Pride Kick-Off party!
Folsom Street Fair
Come volunteer with TurnOut at this year’s Folsom Street Fair, the world’s largest leather event! We’ll be holding a lakeside BBQ on June 3, 1PM-4PM, so volunteers can get to know each other and learn more about this iconic San Francisco event. As a TurnOut volunteer, you’ll be eligible to win a gift certificate of $100 to Mr. S Leather and gain special perks at the fair itself!
For Colored Girls 2017
For Colored Girls is a 3-day direct effect art action in Oakland, California on May 24, 25, and 26. The action draws attention to the 75,000 missing and exploited Black and Indigenous women and girls in the U.S. This demographic represents less than 7% of Americans yet over 35% of all missing persons cases. The stories of missing Black and Indigenous women and girls are rarely told by major news networks or even reach the public via Amber Alerts.
Transgender Youth Group Volunteer
The Outlet Program at Adolescent Counseling Services is looking for a new volunteer facilitator for their Transgender Youth Group. The group is on the first and third Wednesdays of the month from 6PM-7:30PM, and they are looking for someone who identifies within the transgender spectrum and has experience working within transgender / gender non-conforming / non-binary communities.
Support LGBTQ+ Elders through Openhouse
Openhouse has a number of events happening throughout the month of June to support LGBTQ+ elders, and they are looking for volunteers to help promote them! Activities include flyering in the Castro and making calls to Openhouse community members to invite them to events.
Pride Kick Off Party at Bentley Reserve
Richmond-Ermet AIDS Foundation (REAF) is looking for volunteers to help with their VIP Pride Kick Off Party at the awesomely gorgeous Bentley Reserve. Volunteers are needed on June 2 from 6:45PM-10:30PM to help with the silent auction and check-in. All volunteers will be invited to join the party!
