JUNE 11 Pre-Pride Kickoff: Trivia & a Movie

Pre-Pride Kickoff: Trivia & Karaoke

Kick off Capital Pride 2017 with one of our favorite downtown partners, Laughing Sun Brewing. They’ll be tapping a new commemorative Pride beer.

Name the Capital Pride Beer Contest

Can you help us name the wonderful brew that our friends (and Star Sponsors) at Laughing Sun are making just the Capital Pride? They describe it as a “light, cherry ale.” There aren’t many guidelines, but keep it clean enough that you wouldn’t cringe buying your grandmother a beer! 
Provide your suggestion on the contest post in our Facebook event. It’s open until May 23. Email us with any questions.
We’ll have FREE FOOD, as well as the salty trivia emcee you’ve come to know and love, AnnMarie. As always, we’ll have prizes you never knew you were missing your whole life!
This year, we’ve added a FREE MOVIE — a screening of the cult classic, The Birdcage. Starring Robin Williams, Nathan Lane, and Gene Hackman, this movie is a staple of the LGBTQIA film community.
SYNOPSIS: A gay cabaret owner and his drag queen companion agree to put up a false straight front so that their son can introduce them to his fiancée’s right-wing moralistic parents.
Note the special time – 4 p.m. – 8 p.m.
