Sunday Funday Queer Brunch Pop-Up Benefit

Event Details

Spring is here and we are happy to announce NiK Kacy Presents: Queer Brunch Pop-Up to Benefit non-profit organization Gendrfwd, brought to you by Salon Benders’!

Set to officially launch this Summer, Gendrfwd believes that authenticity is beautiful and each human being deserves the right to live life as their true self. (All proceeds/donations to Gendrfwd are tax-deductible via the generous fiscal sponsorship of the San Gabriel Valley LGBTQ Center).

This event is all about being your most authentic self! We encourage everyone to clean out your closets and bring your lightly used items so we can donate to the The LGBTQ Center of Long Beach (They are very much in need of formal/businesswear). What better way to get rid of your old threads and shop for your 2019 look while supporting small queer businesses and worthy nonprofits that support us!

There will be music, food, beverages, beauty demonstrations, queer resources and be sure to buy drink tickets! 100% proceeds from ticket sales will support Gendrfwd. Come have a Sunday Funday with us while doing good for the community! And thank you Salon Benders’ for hosting us at your gorgeous, upscale salon!!
