Don't feel like sharing the dinner table with your homophobic folks? Or maybe you're just too far away to justify a plane or car trip home. Either way, you can give thanks with the local LGBT community at two events on Thanksgiving Day.
The Memphis Gay and Lesbian Community Center is hosting a Thanksgiving potluck at the center (892 S. Cooper) from noon to 4 p.m. Turkey will be provided, but attendees are encouraged to bring their favorite holiday dishes to share.
Not sure how to turn on an oven? Mary's Memphis has you covered. Backstreet's sister bar at 405. Cleveland will host their annual Thanksgiving buffet at noon. Food is provided free of charge.
