I’ve been meaning to submit something to this blog ever since I moved back to Minnesota (in December), but since it’s PRIDE month, I figured I may as well submit something now! :)
I’m looking for other snazzy queer people to befriend! :)

This is the official Facebook page for the Minnesota Queer and/or Trans People of Color Needlework Circle.
Like and share our Facebook page for updates and event information for upcoming meetings!!!
there are TWO separate programs so go to whichever one you prefer or go to both!
every friday until august 15th, 2pm-3pm @ meet at powderhorn park near the corner of 32nd st and 14th ave
join us for an hour of FREE yoga! we will have mats if you don’t have one! led by jay jahmia masika (he/him & they/them pronouns). jay masika is a black/choctaw queer and trans-identified youth worker, mentor, and nerd. they completed their 235-hr yoga teacher training with matt and jaina portwood of radiant life yoga this past spring after finding that yoga helped heal physical and emotional trauma that he carried. their desire as a yoga teacher is to hold space for individuals that allows folks to heal and connect with their bodies that is framed in a way of “listening to your own body.” jay also is aware that studios are often inaccessible due to systems that do not honor various body types, abilities, race, class, and experiences. he invites individuals to listen to what their body needs, engage in self-study, and dig deeper when the individual is ready.
sponsored by shiftmn, tysn, and reclaim
every 2nd and last friday of every month, 6:45pm-7:45pm @ embodied health, 2506 university ave w, st. paul (at intersection of I-94 and hwy 280)

A spot where Oscar Wilde stepped off a train to visit Minneapolis, the place where Josephine Baker danced, the original name of the Gay 90s (now housed in the building shown here, being constructed in 1921), the first known gay and lesbian bars in the city…this tour focuses on secrets and important sites of significance to the local LGBTQ community. Some sites are well-remembered, while others have been demolished and are largely forgotten. Please be aware that sexuality is a focus of this tour; parental discretion is strongly recommended.
This tour walks about a mile; the tour guide is Stewart Van Cleve.
