The Welcoming Committee is now helping the LGBTQ community come together and celebrate the first Friday of each month through their Guerrilla Queer Bar (GQB) in eight cities around the country. For those unfamiliar with GQB, this monthly program from The Welcoming Committee takes over a traditionally “straight” bar, turning it into a LGBTQ space in eight cities including Boston.
This month TWC’s GQB in Boston will take place at (Umbria) Prime located at 295 Franklin Street. All the fun starts at 9PM – don’t show up too fashionably late otherwise you’ll have to wait in line to get inside. GQB will also take place in: Atlanta, Chicago, Minneapolis, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. You can learn more about where GQB will be meeting in your city by linking here.
One of my favorite LGBT organizations, The Welcoming Committee, is planning a massive takeover of Fenway Park on Thursday, May 21st when the Red Sox play host for a night game with the Texas Rangers.
With more than a thousand bleacher seats reserved, join what could be TWC’s largest takeover in memory. In true form, TWC, will host a pre-game “tailgate” by Who’s on First for those who are interested. More details about the evening’s fun and how to purchase tickets online are available via the link included.

Last month I wrote about the TWC take over of the Hasty Pudding Theatricals on Friday, February 20th. If you haven’t any plans for Friday, join Sergio and me as we head to Harvard Square to watch this talented male troupe perform, ¡Oops!…Madrid It Again!.
This is the same production that Amy Poehler (Hasty Pudding Theatricals 2015 Woman of the year) and Chris Pratt (Hasty Pudding Theatricals 2015 Man of the year) watched after receiving their awards.
This event will definitely sell out so don’t dawdle and checkout TWC’s website for details about the logistics and purchase your tickets here.

The Welcoming Committee is returning to Harvard Square to take over one of America’s oldest theatrical traditions.

The Welcoming Committee is encouraging you to embrace the Arts community in all its forms. They are planning a take over of Men of the Strip, a sexy dance show that will be coming to Boston’s Wilbur Theatre on Saturday, Jan. 3, 2015.
While these shows tend to be overrun by middle aged suburban housewives and bachelorette parties, TWC has decided to give these dancers (and their fans) something to think about with their boldest takeover to date.
Join the takeover at Boston’s Wilbur Theatre on Saturday, Jan 3 at 7 p.m.
