Through the COVID-19 pandemic, GO Mag will be gathering the best queer and lesbian virtual events on the weekends in lieu of our regular weekend event round-ups.
Hello and happy Friday! You made it through another week in queer-antine. Take a deep breath and congratulate yourself, then indulge in one of these five queer and lesbian things to do in quarantine over the weekend.
Celebrate Lesbian Visibility Day
Sunday, April 26th is Lesbian Visibility Day! GO Mag rounded up 10 fun things you can do from home to celebrate this very important day on the lesbian calendar, when we uplift all things lesbian.
Also on Sunday, April 26th is GLAAD’s fundraiser, titled: “Together in Pride: You Are Not Alone.” As you probably know by now, Pride has been canceled in pretty much every city, and the LGBTQ+ community is definitely hard hit by the loss in many ways. This event features Melissa Etheridge, Kesha, Dan Levy, and others. Funds will help support struggling LGBTQ+ centers nationwide.
Every Thursday and Sunday at 9 p.m. EST, NYC lesbian bar Henrietta Hudson is hosting a live virtual DJ set and dance party on Zoom! DJ Tikka Masala is in charge of the tunes, and you can donate to help Henrietta’s survive COVID-19 too.
Wanna learn some cool new queer history? Dr. Eric Cervini, historian of LGBTQ+ culture and politics, is hosting a daily book and film club called Quarantini featuring interviews, discussions, and readings. It takes place on Facebook and Instagram Live every day at 3 p.m. EST and you can catch excerpts of previous episodes on Instagram.
Queer Los Angeles cafe, Cuties Coffee, used to host monthly sound baths and tea events for queer and trans people of color. This Saturday at 7 p.m. is their first time hosting a virtual version of the event via Zoom for a sliding scale of $5 to $20. It’s BYOTea, of course.
