To wrap up our Pride events this year, to decompress and come together collectively, we are hosting a Pride Potluck at Prospect Park! As we continue to reclaim and reimagine our space in the world as LGBTQIA+ SWANA folks, we want to invite people to bring heritage dishes – or their modern twists on them. We will also be providing some snacks, drinks, and music.

We are completely volunteer run organization – we really wanted to do more for pride, and earlier, but we have reached max capacity. If you would like to lead an event like TDOA or Dyke March, please email us at
