Getting ready for Her HRC

"Psycho Shanon"

The Human Rights Campaign Dallas-Fort Worth is joining a national effort to get more women involved in HRC with the third annual “Her HRC” party next Sunday, Jan. 15, at Sue Ellen’s, 3014 Throckmorton.

Drag entertainer Cassie Nova will be the host for the event, which starts when the doors open at 2 p.m. The part includes a trivia tournament (teams need to register between 2:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. that day), and the Bachelorette Auction starts at 5 p.m. Radio personality Psycho Shanon from the Kidd Kraddick in the Morning Show on KISS 106.1 FM will be auctioneer.

Admission is only $10 for those 18 and up, and that admission fee includes HRC membership for a year.

Similar events are being held in 12 other cities around the country next weekend, with four more scheduled later. Organizers for the Dallas gathering warn that space is limited and the club is expected to fill up quickly, so get there early.

HRC plans a night for the ladies this month at Jack's Backyard

Later this month, the Human Rights Campaign’s spinoff, Her HRC, presents A National Night of Celebration for Women. Featuring a bachelorette auction, a vacation auction to Las Vegas, Kathy and Bella performing and Psycho Shanon from KISS FM as host, the DFW event seems to have its bases covered. But perhaps the sweetest deal is the $10 ticket to the gig. By the sounds of it, those 10 bucks will include an annual membership to the HRC. Bargain for days.

Mark your calendar for Jan. 17 at 3 p.m. at Jack’s Backyard. They expect the event to reach capacity (131 confirmed guest already on the Facebook page), so get your tickets early. And if you’re so inclined to spruce up your dating game by signing up as a bachelorette, email herhrc@hrcdfw.org. For all other questions about the event, email communityevents@hrc.org.
