A Night of Noise! Support our queer future with SMYRC

I’m just gonna copy in this email I got. Support SMYRC. They are awesome! As a youth, I profited greatly from a group like SMYRC, and I personally know queer and questioning youth who are current SMYRC regulars.

Community “Night of Noise” Fundraiser for the Sexual Minority Youth Resource Center Friday, April 17th @ the Jupiter Hotel

“Night of Noise”, an all ages GLBTQ community fundraiser to benefit the Sexual Minority Youth Resource Center, will take place Friday, April 17 from 9pm-1am at The Jupiter Hotel on 800 E Burnside St. The event is organized by the Portland State University Queer Resource Center, SinnSavvy Productions, and local promoter Kaki Marshall. Additional sponsors of the event include Just Out, the Portland Mercury, KBOO 90.7 FM, the Associated Students of Portland Community College Sylvania, and the Portland chapter of the Human Right’s Campaign.

Night of Noise will celebrate self expression and the strengths of the GLBTQ community, with entertainment from SinnSavvy Productions artists the Rose City Sirens, the River City Riders, the B.B. Dolls, Burlesquire, and Angelique DeVil, followed by the sounds of the fabulous DJ Automaton and DJ Linoleum. The dreamBOX at the Jupiter Hotel will house a cash bar separate from the dance floor, to provide an all ages celebration. Tickets are $8 for students and $10 general admission, and will be available at the door & through Ticketmaster. All ticket sales will benefit SMYRC, to support their relocating from their current home on Belmont which suffered severe damage during the winter snow storms.

“Night of Noise” is a follow-up to National Day of Silence, where students & their supporters are silent during day to raise awareness around and express solidarity with GLBTQ folks who are silenced daily through harassment, bias, and violence.
