Next Rally in Response to Rainbow Lounge Raid

If anyone is interested in participating, below is some info regarding the next rally:

Rainbow Lounge Raid Rally
Tarrant County Courthouse
100 E Weatherford
Sunday, July 12
7:00 PM


LGBT North Texas will rally again at the Tarrant County Courthouse on Sunday, July 12 at 7:00 PM. If in the next two weeks there is city-wide condemnation of the Rainbow Lounge Raid then the rally will then be one to congratulate the city on their swift and sharp action. On the other hand, if first hand reports still contradict the official story, if arresting officers are not seriously disciplined, if the officer responsible for Chad Gibson’s brain hemorrhage is still an active member of the Fort Worth Police Department, if apologies are not issued by the mayor, Mike Moncrief, and the Fort Worth Police Chief, Jeffery Halstead then the tone of the rally will adequately express the indignation from our community regarding the City of Fort Worth’s less than aggressive response to homophobia and police brutality.

The Illalogical Spoons

Monday NIght Show

Hey everybody. Monday night(June 8th) we are having a show at Tolstoy House.

This is a rather special event for a few reasons. For one, it will be the first show at Tolstoy House! More importantly, our friend and neighbor, Diego, has been in the hospital with very serious complications this week. He is still there, and we don't know when/if he will be coming back. We would like to dedicate this show to Diego.

Diego's usual place on Hemphill Street for the past year or so has been our front porch. What better place to have the show?

The bands include:

Martin Kingsley

The Lesser Beggars

the illalogical spoon(de-capitalized to prevent your confusion): 6 members, 2 of which are former Psalters( Amplified acoustic, with a loud folk/country/jazz/crust punk/hardcore sound. I found this on the interweb:

We will be accepting donations in the front yard. Please do not bring alcoholic beverages. Please do not litter. Please bring a loving heart to share with your sisters and brothers. And please bring lawn chairs or blankets, if you wish to sit down.

Monday, June 8th at 7pm
1921 Hemphill Street
Ft. Worth, TX 76110

Holler if you have any questions! Please pass this info on to your friends! As this was last minute, we have not had much time to promote!

Many Thanks,

Permaculture Classes postponed for a while

Hey everybody, I have given it some thought, and I am going to postpone continuing the permaculture course for a while. I haven't been able to make the necessary time to adequately prepare for the classes. My new job is taking a lot of time and i don't have the energy to commit fully to both right now. It is also starting to get hot, and with no AC in the house it will be fairly unbearable. The new job goes to half-time sometime after November, which will be perfect timing for getting everything ready for next spring, so we should be resuming classes then if not sooner.

I hope everyone can understand, and that you will all be interested in continuing this fall. the potlucks will be continuing, and those who want to help out putting in our new fence and a few other things we need to have done this summer should let me know and i will put you on our volunteers list.

Eve Ensler's Testimony Before US Senate Yesterday

The horrific violence the Congolese people have faced for the past 12 years still thrives, while we go about our business as usual. Make a fuss. Make a change. Start by reading Eve's testimony below. Just copy and paste to your browser:

May Potluck is Tomorrow!!

Hey guys. We set out to have our "open" potluck on the first Friday of every month. May kind of snuck up on us. We planned to have an outdoor BBQ(hoping for 2 grills-one for the carnivores, one for the herbivores). But, since the rain may keep us inside, we are going to save the BBQ for better weather.

Please feel free to come and join us this Friday May 1st, for our May Potluck. The more the merrier-bring your friends!

Keep in mind the following:

1. Alcoholic beverages are best left at home. Some of our friends have addiction/substance abuse issues, and it would be awesome if everyone could be understanding of that(I can't imagine anyone being enough of a jerk to oppose, but, you never know).

2. Many of our friends are vegan(no dairy, no meat, no animal nothin'). You are welcome to bring whatever you want, but this might interest you, if you are cooking.

3. 2 of us have gluten(wheat, basically) allergies. We can deal, we're big girls, but, again-this may interest you.

4. Our potlucks have the aim of cultivating relationships that cross, and diminish, cultural boundaries.

There will be a fun shared-art project to participate in if you so wish.

Please come. You are the community, and no one can bring to this gathering what you, specifically, can bring. It may sound a little "Chicken Soup for the Soul" to say this, but, SHOOT: there is only ONE you!

Potluck will be from 6 pm-7 pm.
