From The Editor: Let’s Get This Party Started
Break out the drinks. Turn up the music. And throw on those rainbows. It’s Pride time, baby!
Even after the release of our massive Pride Edition, the party don’t stop, because it’s Pride Weekend in the Twin Cities, and Lavender presents to you a wealth of awesome parties and events for this weekend celebration thanks to our 2018 Pride What To Do guide.
This guide has something for everyone, from weekend celebrations at The Saloon and eagleBOLTbar, to Pride dance parties at First Avenue and the Pourhouse, to drag shows and rooftop parties galore. And don’t forget Lavender’s Pride Score Thursday at LUSH!
On top of that, get closer to the local rainbow community with a look at Kelly Holstine, the first-ever GLBT Teacher of the Year in Minnesota; we learn about the lives of the deaf queer community; and we speak with the Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans about their mission to assist gay veterans facing homelessness. We also explore the tasty treats of Fireroast Cafe in South Minneapolis, as well as the homey locales of Eau Claire.
Regardless of how you celebrate, this is YOUR time, rainbow folks, and we’re privileged to be able to share this amazing weekend with you.
