Queer Soup Night Fundraiser
April 5 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm$10 – $20
SOCAL’S FIRST EVER QUEER SOUP NIGHT hosted by Under the Sun featuring soups from local chefs. All proceeds to benefit The LGBTQ Center Long Beach
April 5th, 530-830PM at Under the Sun Courtyard 244 East 3rd Street in Downtown Long Beach.
Suggested Donation $10-$20
Under the Sun and Rainbow Juices owners, Dawna Bass and Christine Cox have partnered with Queer Soup Night – a Brooklyn-based grassroots fundraising event that’s a great opportunity for the community to come together through food!! It started in 2016 as a response to the 2016 election as a way to actively raise money for local organizations while building queer community in an environment not centered around alcohol. QSN has since raised over $25,000 and chapters have sprung up across North America. The idea is simple: we bring together local chefs, they each make a unique soup, and guests (queers & allies alike) are invited to come and eat soup and offer a suggested donation of $10 – $20. There is always a beneficiary organization and a bar or restaurant where the event takes place. ALL profits are donated to a local organization. The organization we have partnered with for the first event is the LGBTQ Center LB (The Center).

COME AS YOU ARE – ENJOY QUEER COMMUNITY – RALLY FOR A CAUSE
Queer Soup Night is a Brooklyn-born, international community committed to resistance. We started as a queer party serving soup to those we love, raising money for those we rally with. In just a few years we’ve grown from just one Brooklyn party to local chapters across North America. We are on a mission to strengthen local queer communities across the country through sharing space, sharing food, and contributing to something bigger than ourselves.
We hope to see you at LB’s very first QUEER SOUP NIGHT
