in the face of all the hardness in the world, we're coming together to create a space that's soft.
soft fade // is
a pop up barber shop + hair salon benefit & day party for queers (and friends of all kinds) to tighten their bonds and ~spring~ looks over drinks and beats.
we're turning the New Parish courtyard into a backyard barber shop, and we'll be dancing & cutting hair all afternoon:: come out & spend a sunny Saturday amidst the clinking of glasses and razors, hair falling, queers meeting each other, queers flirting, queers laughing, queers getting down, and, of course, queers getting fantastic haircuts.
21+ // $5-10 suggested donation
bring your chosen family, your best pals, your boo, your hotpants, that dreamy *queercuts* photo you found on tumblr a few weeks ago and YOUR CASH because we're donating all the proceeds from this sexy/ swoony benefit to Trans Lifeline & The Time Is Now: LGBTQ Youth Summit (thru QTY Treehouse) ~ using our dollars to take care of our queer family near + far.
