Sprucing Up Peter Claver1442072700000

Get dirty to do good with the Bridgemen. Volunteers will work together on improvements of the Peter Claver Community Residence, a licensed care facility for formally homeless who are living with HIV/AIDS.

The Bridgemen have been called upon to lend a hand with gardening and other forms of cleaning and beautification of this important facility. Not only do the residents appreciate the work Bridgemen will be doing, but they also appreciate the company! Please join us for this truly memorable service project.

John David is the point man for this project.

Project Homeless Connect1443034800000

Help the Bridgemen by volunteering at the Project Homeless Connect Cafe. We will be feeding hungry visitors at this massive event. 

Project Homeless Connect provides a one-stop shop service event where individuals experiencing homelessness can access critical resources including Medi-Cal, dental and vision care, and employment assistance.  By mobilizing city and community agencies, as well as thousands of volunteers, we are able to ensure that our participants receive holistic care in a dignified setting.

We will meet on the East Steps of City Hall (the ones facing Civic Center Plaza). We will then walk to the historic Bill Graham Auditorium, which was built for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915. 

If you have any trouble finding us, feel free to call Michael, the Bridgemen Program Coordinator, at 415.987.5120. 

Jess Williams is the point man for this event.

Magnet Art Opening - "Be My Porn Star Tonight" - Art by Jok Church1443236400000

The RSVP for this meetup opens on Friday, September 4 at 9:00 AM.

Join Bridgemen at the August Magnet Art Opening.  This month, Jok Church is the featured artist. 

Jok's show, titled "Be My Porn Star Tonight," illustrates the beauty of man in a kaleidoscope of body parts. This colorful show also features some familiar faces of the San Francisco porn industry.

"'Be My Porn Star Tonight' is a celebration of Created Queer Eroticism, which is one way to look at pornography. A great many of the portraits are of illuminaries of the local pornography production industry," explains the artist.

Jok has also committed to donating 100% of all proceeds from the show to Magnet

We will be passing out Bridgemen stickers, so make sure to look for anyone wearing a sticker and come say hello. Our event hosts for the September Art Opening are Jason and Rodo.

Magnet Art Opening - "Bottom to Top" - Art by Matthew Terrell1443841200000

RSVP for this meetup will open on Friday, September 11 at 9:00 AM.

Join Bridgemen at the October Magnet Art Opening.  This month, Matthew Terrell is the featured artist. 

Matthew's work incorporates his unique style of double exposure. The show is based on experiences from his first visit to San Francisco. He explains, "All of these images were shot on 35mm film in a double-exposure process. I take a roll of film, rewind it, reload it, and reshoot it. I don’t know what images I am photographing over, and the surreptitious nature of this process yields surreal, dreamlike images of people and place. Shooting on film forces me to make sure every image I capture is compelling, and the double exposure process allows me to have a sense of play when I am shooting."

Matthew describes the show as a celebration of queer culture in the Bay Area, something he fell in love with instantly. Matthew's works have been featured in the Huffington Post and he has written for Vice Magazine. He made a name for himself by photographing drag queens in Atlanta.

We will be passing out Bridgemen stickers, so make sure to look for anyone wearing a sticker and come say hello.
