THE COMING OUT MONOLOGUES - SEASON 4

Thursday, October 11, Doors 7pm | Show 7:30pm | Tickets

 

This storytelling event features a unique collection and representation of experiences and coming out stories authored and performed by people in our community who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, asexual, queer, trans, non-binary, genderqueer or as straight or cisgender allies. It is a raw, inspiring, transformative and intimate live event with limited seating. These stories include unique backgrounds and perspectives as well as periods of time—from people who came out this year to yesteryear. These stories run the gamut — humorous, poignant, serious, heartbreaking, embarrassing, creative, painful and hopeful.

 

In past seasons, the response we’ve received was incredible. This popular event will sell out quickly, so get your tickets while you can! 

 

Tickets are $15 before 9/30, then the price will increase to $20. No one will be turned away for lack of ability to pay. If you can’t afford a ticket and would like to attend, please email julie@basicrights.org.  If you’d like to sponsor a ticket for someone to attend, click here

 

This event will be ASL interpreted.

50TH ANNIVERSARY OF FAIR HOUSING ACT:

AN EVENING WITH RICHARD ROTHSTEIN

***SOLD OUT***

Thursday, April 19, Doors 6:30 | Show 7pm - 8:30pm

 

Richard Rothstein’s The Color of Law: A forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America is an explosive, alarming history that finally confronts how American governments in the twentieth century deliberately imposed residential racial segregation on metropolitan areas nationwide.

 

In this special Portland program, Rothstein will discuss the findings described in his new book and will hold a post-lecture conversation with local expert Dr. Karen Gibson, author of “Bleeding Albina: A History of Community Disinvestment, 1940–2000.”

 

“Rothstein is brilliant and has the kind of fine understanding of the machinery of government policy as it relates to housing that I deeply envy.”

 

—Ta-Nehisi Coates, in The Atlantic
