FEMINIST & QUEER HAPPY HOUR

 

Launched by Jamie J. Hagen in late 2017, the Feminist and Queer Happy Hour is a monthly event where you can connect with friends and meet new ones while donating to and learning about a local non-profit.

We host monthly events in Boston and Providence with a team of co-hosts. As we say on our event page, "Networking is hard and weird. Meeting casually in a no pressure environment like this happy hour (we hope) is a way to network with people who care about the same things."  We'll provide nametags because meeting people might be easier with names, a conversation starter and also pronouns.

We also raise funds every happy hour for a different non-profit. We raise the money by asking for a suggested donation of $5 at the door which then enters you in a raffle for our door prize. Previous raffle prizes have included books, gift certificate for a massage and a goodie bag of sex toys. Prizes are donated and more donations are always welcome.

There is something for mostly everyone who wants to find some mutually minded folks to hang out with and continue making plans to topple the patriarchy! Visit our Facebook page for pictures from our previous events. Over 500 likes and counting! Follow or like our page to learn about upcoming events and see more pictures.
