We offer unique programs every month that feature special guests, raffle prizes, and fun surprises! Bring your favorite sips and snacks and join host Kathleen Barker (you can meet Kathleen below) for one of our virtual soirées.

Fred Karger

Meet Fred Karger, the First OUT Major Party Candidate for US President! January 20th, 7:30 - 8:30 p.m. Eastern

Fred will discuss his historic run for president of the United States within the Republican party in 2012, and how Pete Buttigieg’s high-profile run for the presidency eight years later caused Fred to make sure his campaign wasn’t erased from history! The raffle winner will receive Fred's book, FRED WHO?

I hope I was a part of making things better, so kids growing up LGBTQ know they have no limits. And it's why I've been fighting, why so many of my generation are fighting, and why I ran for president." - Fred Karger, Politico, June 30, 2019
