Queens of the Night & The Mix Fundraiser for Orlando Shooting Victims
Saturday Jun 18, 2016 6:00pm-9:00pm in Tacoma
Our world was shaken last weekend with a terrible tragedy that affected our entire nation and beyond. What do you say to console the loved ones? How do you bring back the feeling of safety and celebration that the patrons of such a large nightclub enjoyed during their free time? When a tragedy hits we band closer together, but how do we deal with the impact of unprecedented violence which serves as a painful reminder of how far we have yet to go to achieve equal access to safety?
One thing we can do is to come together to show that we are not afraid. The spaces of safety and artistic expression that we fought so hard to gain are still ours. Now is the time to stand PROUD!
Let’s show our fierceness and our unity with a loud, defiant, queer party! AB Pure Entertainment and The Mix invite you to join us this Saturday kicking off a big fundraiser for the victims of this mass shooting. Our friendly bar will accept donations from now through the end of Tacoma Pride Block Party, July 9th. Donations will benefit the victims of #OrlandoShooting. Queens and Kings of the Night will entertain you this weekend, June 18th, 7-9pm with roaring hits. We ask for suggested donation of $5, 100% of the door will be added to The Mix funds who are in contact with the owners of Club Pulse and will make sure the funds get to the victims.
To connect you with help, victim advocacy, therapy, and other resources seek out Tacoma Rainbow Center who organized a vigil right after the incident on Sunday June 12th drawing over 300 people. They also work closely with the City of Tacoma to ensure a safe and jubilant PRIDE! Please check out their website to see what resources are available to us and how you can volunteer to help their mission to advocate, educate, and celebrate. (http://www.rainbowcntr.org)
