Gay Group Happy Hour, celebrating its 7th year of operation, hosted their annual holiday party Thursday night at Clasico with over 100 guests in attendance. G2H2 is a traveling Happy Hour scheduled on the first Thursday of the Month. Clasico owners were thrilled to be hosting the LGBT community at their business stating "Why would you have wanted to have it anywhere else?" after Cask & Ale canceled the event 2 days prior due to complications with the event contracts. G2H2 collected over 50 toys for "Manasota Guardians of Love" an organization that promotes wellbeing for local less privileged children, the homeless, and families. Check out the photo's below from the event. Sign-up for the G2H2 notifier to stay informed on the locations by visiting www.g2h2sarasota.com
SarasotaOUT.com is proud to be presenting the POINT FOUNDATION a check for $5310 from our 2017 Valentine's Prom!
Point Foundation (Point) empowers promising lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) students to achieve their full academic and leadership potential – despite the obstacles often put before them – to make a significant impact on society.
Point seeks to foster a greater level of acceptance, respect, and tolerance for all persons in society, and to build a community of socially active leaders. Point does this through scholarship funding, mentorship, leadership development, and community service training, and is the nation’s largest scholarship-granting organization for LGBTQ students of merit.
Point’s work is vital because nearly one-third of LGBTQ students drop out of high school to escape the violence, harassment, and isolation they face there. As a result, many LGBTQ students say they are not planning to pursue opportunities for higher education.
