Gray Pride Café presents Brunch and a Movie
A parallel revolution was born out of the feminist movement of the 1970s, coming to an end around 1995. Lesbiana: A Parallel Revolution,
by filmmaker Myriam Fougère, takes us on a journey to meet the lesbian writers, philosophers and activists who were key players in creating a revolutionary sisterhood. The movie will be followed by a panel discussion, featuring Ann Brown, Alpha Thomas (pictured) and Shelley Torres-West. This Gray Pride event is for women only.
Rainbow Room at Resource Center Dallas
2701 Reagan St.
The Café opens at 11 a.m. Brunch will be served soon afterward. The movie will play at 12:15 p.m. Free.
Trinity Groves hosts Dallas Mojito Pour-off 2013
You may not need an excuse to drink mojitos, but how often can you do it for a good cause while checking out one of Dallas’ hot new entertainment spots? The cocktail favorite of pirates, sailors and Ernest Hemingway is traditionally flavored with lime and mint, but some of North Texas’ most creative mixologists have their own variations, and they’ll vie for “Best Mojito in Dallas” at the Dallas Mojito Pour-Off 2013. Attendees can sample the concoctions and vote by text for their faves, with proceeds benefiting Voz del Anciano (The Voice of the Elderly), a nonprofit serving elderly Latinos.
340 Singleton Blvd.
Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at MojitoPouroff.com.
