♥ PrideMinistry Alternative Souls Interfaith Monthly Brunch (Meets near Midtown Manhattan)
Date/Time: Coming early 2019. Date TBD.
PrideMinistry loves brunch. We really, really do! Brunch is pretty much a way of life for us, and we believe that brunchliness is close to godliness. Come hang out with a group of warm and welcoming spiritually-minded, brunch-loving seekers of diverse faith traditions and wisdom paths. Come as you are in all of your Kinky, LGBTQAI+, Poly, Questioning, Non-Conforming, Genderqueer, and Alt glory! We will discuss current and timely spiritual topics through the Interfaith/Interspiritual lens, as participants support each other in developing and maintaining personal spiritual practices to boost happiness and inner balance, and to live an authentically Altfabulous life.
Fee: Nothing except the cost of your own brunch; if we have a guest presenter that month (usually an ordained clergyperson) you have the option of making a small financial offering, but it is not required.
Location: Location to be disclosed after your RSVP is reviewed and confirmed. The venue is Queer owned, Kink-supportive, and celebrating of Alt Relationships and Lifestyles. They have graciously given us use of their private event space, which has an amazing view. Their brunch specials rock.
