All Callen-Lorde sites will close at 4:15pm on Wednesday, November 25th and will remain closed through Saturday, November 28th.
The Brooklyn Ball is a LGBTQ charity extravaganza benefitting Callen-Lorde Community Health Center as they open their first Brooklyn location in fall 2019. This event is a fabulous mixer highlighting cultural leaders of color in the community with a photo installation, performances, fashions, and dance. This is a non-corporate sponsored event, built by the generosity and convening of our local community.
The style theme this year is “Leaves of Grass” an homage to the Bicentennial Walt Whitman and their canonical book of queer poetry. The evening will be a glam green gathering weaving inspiration from green plants, the natural world, poetry, and language. We encourage outrageous looks incorporating things such as succulents, cacti, terrariums, air plants, astroturf, and anything green of this nature.
