Like to screw and bang things?? Whether you're handy with a hammer or have no skills at all, WE WANT YOU to volunteer with Point Men Lance and Jim for BRIDGEMEN's second partnership with Habitat for Humanity. No experience is necessary and hunky handy-men will be giving us handy skills we'll need to do our job for the day!
Our tasks will vary depending on the progress being made at Habitat Terrace in Oceanview, which you may remember was ravaged by fire last September. But alas, no task is too small for BRIDGEMEN! So whether we're driving nails into studs, getting things hung or just unloading supplies, our contribution will help to build critical, low income housing in San Francisco for those in most need.
**Day-of project training begins promptly at 8:45am so please arrive early and be aware that the construction site dosen't open until 8:30am. Consider taking MUNI, as parking is limited.
For those of you that are interested in going together as a group. We will be meeting at Castro MUNI Station at 7:15 AM. It takes about 30 minutes to get to the site.
Be sure to bring a water container as they will have water, but you will need to have something to put the water in.
Lunch will be provided to all participants!
Come prepared to do good and get dirty with your fellow BRIDGEMEN!

Join BRIDGEMEN at this month's gallery opening and artist's reception at Magnet. February is the month of love and this month the art at Magnet is all about love. Join us as we celebrate the romantic works of Oth Khotsimeuang.
Oth is a Lao-American cartoon artist who was born in a refugee camp in Nong Khai, Thailand outside of Vientiane, Laos. He was named after a chubby Cambodian man at the camp with a horrible sense of humor.
Oth currently works as a lighting artist at DreamWorks Animation Studios on such animated features as "How to Train your Dragon," "Mr Peabody and Sherman" and others.
The show "Boys of Melody" is about celebrating the small fleeting moments of life. The work is also about increasing visibility of positive gay imagery with tenderness, humor and emotion which is often absent in the sea of overtly sexual/body shaming propaganda that targets gay culture.

Join Jim and Johnny as they brainstorm different ideas for the parade. We are really wanting Bridgemen to be seen as the wonderful group that it is and attract some attention this year at the parade. Come help us make Bridgemen history as we prepare for the parade.
