Fundraiser for Gays in Chechnya, Sunday, May 28th, 2-6PM

The reports of targeting and torture of our gay brothers and sisters in Chechnya has been upsetting to us all. It is easy to feel powerless, helpless in times of persecution. But our community is strongest when we come together to celebrate life and harness our resources to make a difference.

Join us for a Sunday afternoon fundraiser on the roof of OASIS. We’ll be raffling off prizes, selling food, donating the proceeds from a Stella Beer Bust and collecting donations.

Sunday, May 28, 2-6PM

SF Oasis, 298 11th Street, San Francisco, CA, 94103
