One of the District’s largest gay bars is partnering with the Mayor’s Office of LGBTQ Affairs to host a celebration for National Coming Out Day next week.
Town Danceboutique (2009 8th St. NW) will kick off the party on Tuesday, Oct. 11, at 6 p.m., according to an email from the mayor’s office.
“Every year on National Coming Out Day, we celebrate coming out as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ) or as an ally,” the email reads. “This fall mixer will serve to bring the community together to bond, to heal, and to celebrate being their true, authentic selves.”
The mixer will include free light refreshments, a speech from the director of the Mayor’s Advisory Committee on LGBTQ Affairs, Sheila Alexander-Reid, and a cash bar.
Those interested in attending the mixer are “highly encouraged” to RSVP online.
