Integrating text, movement, music, and design, a group of queer youth and elders embark on an oral history of queer lives. We have a very small block of tickets to this show. If you aren’t able to make it with the DFC group, check out other show times and dates.
Thursday June 8, 7pm in the Community Room

HOW CAMP – An Evening Of Gay Cinema
Wednesday June 14, 7pm in the Community Room
We are mega jazzed to host a sing-a-long / quote-a-long screening of gay camp classics The Wizard of Oz and Priscilla Queen of the Desert. Cocktails and snacks will be served.
DFC PRIDE BRUNCH!
Saturday June 17, 12pm – 4pm in the Courtyard
Traditionally, PRIDE at DFC has been a night-time affair, but we are shaking things up this year. In addition to lots of great food, coffee, and cocktails, guests will also have a chance to flaunt their sass with our own lip-synch battle! Make no mistake…this will be a festive, fun, and fierce party to let your PRIDE flag fly! PLEASE RSVP BY JUNE14TH!
