Gay Event Round-Up



I'll be on a cruise to lovely Mexico later this week, so I won't be posting to Memphis Gaydar for a few days. Here's a round-up of LGBT-related events to keep you busy while I'm away:

Betty Buckley
  • Betty Buckley

* Betty Buckley at the Germantown Performing Arts Centre
Broadway queens, this one's for you. Musical theater star/film and TV actress Betty Buckley will be performing all the Broadway show tunes you know and love on Saturday, Nov. 6th at 8 p.m. Hopefully, the former Eight Is Enough star will belt out her famous rendition of Memory from Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats. Buckley will be joined by Seth Rudetsky, a host on SIRIUS/XM's "Broadway's Best" channel. Go to the GPAC website for ticket info.

* "Many Men, Many Voices" Class at the Memphis Gay & Lesbian Community Center
Designed for gay men of color who sleep with men but may not identify as gay ("on the down low"), this seven-session class focuses on HIV and sexually-transmitted disease prevention. The first class in the session is scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 7th at 6:30 p.m. Those interested must be present at the first class to attend any future sessions in this round of programming. For more information, call 901-278-6422 or e-mail MGLCC is located at 892 S. Cooper.

* First Reading of the Non-Discrimination Ordinance at Memphis City Council
On Tuesday, November 9th, the Memphis City Council will vote on the first of three readings of the latest version of the non-discrimination ordinance protecting LGBT city workers. They'll also be voting on the only reading of a resolution allowing the city to anonymously survey city workers about discrimination. The council meets on the first floor of 125 N. Main at 3:30 p.m.
