"Elsewhere, a living museum in downtown Greensboro announces a Farm to Table Dinner on May 30th, 2014 to support QueerLab, an education program for LGBTQ youth in North Carolina and I Don’t Do Boxes, a magazine exploring queer southern experience. All proceeds from the dinner will be used to print and distribute the magazine to gay-straight alliances, community spaces, and organizations around the country. The dinner is also an opportunity to discuss Greensboro’s local food systems, and the fight for equity across the state.
Guests will enjoy a medley of fresh foods donated by local farms, and a presentation from farmers and youth involved with the program. Tickets are $30 - 50, and includes a three course meal, special cocktails, and wine/beer. Doors open at 6:30pm, with dinner served at 7pm. Tickets available for purchase at Elsewhere museum (Wed-Sat, 1-10pm) or online at goelsewhere.org/queerlab
Since 2003 Elsewhere has provided a safe and queer-friendly space for LGBTQ communities and allies. In 2012 we launched QueerLab in collaboration with the Guilford Green Foundation and YouthSAFE, bringing together an editorial team of queer-identifying youth to publish I Don’t Do Boxes magazine, and organize workshops focused on creative media production. The second issue of I Don’t Do Boxes will be released June 6th with a public Launch Party featuring original music, lyrics, stories and sound recordings from LGBTQ youth and allies from around the world.
Local food and refreshments for the dinner provided by Massey Creek Farm, Grove Winery, Dutch Buffalo Farm, Earthfare, Goat Lady Dairy, Get Real Creamery, Eggman Eggs, NC A&T University Farm and more. The dinner is co-organized by Elsewhere and Megan Denton, a chef, farmer, and founder of Able Farms.
