This month, the Strut Book Club is reading QDA: A Queer Disability Anthology edited by Raymond Luczak and featuring fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and comics by 48 writers from around the world. Join us July 25 at 7:30 PM on the Third Floor of Strut for some wine and great conversations about literature. Read the book before hand and come ready to discuss your thoughts.
QDA: A Queer Disability Anthology proves that intersectionality isn’t just a buzzword. It’s a penetrating and unforgettable look into the hearts and souls of those defiant enough to explore their own vulnerabilities and demonstrate their own strengths.
Monday, July 25 | 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM
Strut | 470 Castro Street (18th and Castro)
Come volunteer with the Bridgemen at Maitri, a residential care facility for people living with AIDS. The Bridgemen have been tasked with painting, gardening, and reorganizing Maitri's facility after a reconstruction project.
The residents of Maitri will appreciate these improvements and they will appreciate your kindness and generosity. And this will be a great opportunity to make new friends and break a sweat doing something for the community.
And if you'd like some social time after the project, John David will be organizing the group to head to Flagging in the Park after the project is over... so if you'd like to join us, bring a blanket to sit on and plan to catch the N MUNI light rail over to Golden Gate Park for some fun music and festivities.
Saturday, July 30 | 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM
Maitri | 401 Duboce Ave (near the N MUNI stop behind Safeway)

Bridgemen, come help us serve it while it's hot! Join us for a day of serving lunch to San Francisco's poor, homeless, and hungry.
Glide is a radically inclusive, just and loving community mobilized to alleviate suffering and break the cycles of poverty and marginalization. Glide is an active place of worship in the Tenderloin that has built a reputation around providing social services for some of the neighborhoods most vulnerable. Bridgemen will be assisting with the meals program, which was launched in the 1960s.
Wear comfy clothing and a Bridgemen shirt if you've got one and meet us in front of the San Francisco AIDS Foundation building at 10:30 AM. If you arrive late, please call or text Michael at 415.987.5120.
John David is the project lead.
