06/17/2016: “Reverence, Respect, Resolution – Truth in Light of Tragedy”




Come join us for our  third Friday discussion, 8:30pm at The DC Center.  As we write this late Tuesday night, we are still reeling from the attack in Orlando.  We are saddened, hurt, disgusted, and yes, a bit fearful.  By this Friday, we will have attended a discussion/meeting/vigil produced by the DC Center at Foundry United Methodist, and we’ll see where our emotional state goes from there. 

But Friday will be a time to voice our anger, reminisce about our first or most memorable gay bar experience, mourn for the victims, and press on to make a better future. This will be a time to come together as a community to share our feelings (whatever they may be) in a SAFE space with no judgement…only support. Our facilitators, Michael, Joe and Justin will help guide the conversation with tact, respect, and sensitivity. We hope that you will join us in this time of healing and reflection. We are a strong community and while several voices were silenced ours will be heard. 
Gay District meets at The DC Center, located inside the Reeves building at 2000 14th Street NW Washington, DC 20009.  Attendees will need to enter the Reeves building via the “Exit” doors on 14th Street, facing McDonald’s.
