VOLUNTEER: Generations - A Celebration of Black LGBTIQQ History1550883600000


Generations began as a Black History workshop for Black Brothers Esteem (BBE) to mark Black History Month and has grown into a multi-media celebration of African-American LGBTIQQ history and culture. It features art, music and performances by local Bay Area African-American artists. Additionally, there will be food, and the San Francisco Department of Public Health and the Women’s Community Clinic will be on hand to do free HIV/STI testing.

The Bridgemen are honored once again to partner with BBE to help put on this year’s event. We will assist with food prep, set-up and serving and may also assist with event break-down and various other duties to ensure the event runs smoothly. There should also be plenty of time for Bridgemen to enjoy the event as well. It promises to be an amazing evening!

Please wear a Bridgemen T-shirt if you have one. If you don’t yet have a Bridgemen T-shirt, please tell Alex your T-shirt size BEFORE NOON, 02/22/19, so that I know to bring one for you. Please note that supply is limited, and your size may no longer be available.

Community Coffee Social at Maxfield’s1550944800000

Start your weekend off right with a caffeine boost and a friendly chat! Every Saturday morning, members of the Elizabeth Taylor 50-Plus Network meet at Maxfield’s House of Caffeine at Dolores and 17th for a coffee social. They’ve extended a warm invite to their Bridgemen brothers to join them!

There’s no set agenda; you may come and go as you please between 10 AM and 12 PM. Some people hangout even longer, and it is not uncommon for people to still be there around 1 PM. The largest group has been 29 people but it is usually between 10-20. The coffees are a great way to be introduced to the group(s), and are great for first-timers. See you there!

Strut Art Opening - “Ang Rasiya” by Ashish Kumar1551499200000

The Art at Strut program has been exhibiting the work of local and international gay or queer artists every month since Magnet was founded in 2003, and has always been an important part of Magnet. We are excited to announce that for the month of March 2019 we are exhibiting the work of Ashish Kumar in his show titled “Ang Rasiya.”

South Asian in origin, Ashish Kumar (also known as Axeishguy), is a gay man currently living in San Francisco. He is a self-taught digital artist who loves experimenting with different styles and media. He has been drawing male nudes and gay-themed sensual art since 2016. This is his first solo show. “Ang Rasiya” is the title of this collection of work. “Ang” means “body,” and “Rasiya” can be translated as an “epicure.” Ang Rasiya is about celebrating gay men sensually expressing themselves via a wide range of sexual activities. Through Ang Rasiya, one can get a glimpse into the rich cultural world of Indian gay men. Ashish's artwork depicts his life journey of coming to terms with his sexuality and his perspective of how amazing and queer the world can be.

Ashish pursued his education as engineer and currently holds a Master’s degree in Computer Science, but he knew at an early age that art is something deep within him. As a child, he would scribble on anything in front of him. He destroyed a lot of things by scribbling on them before he was given a sketch book. When he was very young he discovered he was attracted to men and this caused him great confusion, fear and turmoil. Creating art like this has given him a safe space to explore his sexuality and celebrate his culture.

The Art Opening runs 8–10 PM. Free drinks and light snacks will be provided. If you have any questions, please contact our Community Events Organizer Baruch Porras Hernandez at [masked].
