Copy: Once again Juanita MORE is hosting the hottest San Francisco LGBT Pride Parade - After Party. This event will take place on Sunday, June 28, 2009 at The Bambuddha Lounge and is benefiting the Transgender Law Center.
Transgender individuals continue to face a range of difficulties in our society. From employment discrimination that has led to chronic unemployment, to lack of access to a safe education, to difficulty finding accessible and non-discriminatory healthcare, members of the transgender community experience multiple barriers to success. In addition to these barriers, transgender individuals must navigate a complex set of forms and paperwork if they wish to change legal documents to match their gender identity.
That’s why I was so heartened to hear about the work that Transgender Law Center (TLC) is doing in our community. Everyday TLC connects transgender people and their families to technically sound and culturally competent legal services, increases acceptance and enforcement of laws and policies that support California's transgender communities, and works to change laws and systems that fail to incorporate the needs and experiences of transgender people.
The benefit this June at Bambuddha Lounge begins with music by some of Miss MORE’s favorite DJs including James Glass, Victor Rodriguez (Shits & Giggles, LA), & Robot Hustle (Honey Soundsystem). The ONES (JoJo Americo, Paul Alexander & Nashom) rock the pool ringside with there smash hits! This will be the ONLY pool party on pride with half naked MOREboys. Performing again by popular demand are the amazing kids from The Cougar Cadet Corps Drumline! The party continues indoors all night with the Gemini Disco team - Disc Jockeys Derrick Love & Nicky B with Hostess Le Dinosaur and visual engineer That Mold Science.
You can spend the night at The Phoenix Hotel; rooms start at $169 a night. Enjoying the pool is strictly for guest only, so please be advised. Since the party is only a couple of blocks away from Civic Center, this makes Bambuddha Lounge the perfect spot for you and your friends to celebrate.
Advance tickets are available at The Seventh Heart 1592 Market Street @ Franklin, SFCA or www.juanitamore.com for $25 / $35 at the door.
