Social Mixer, Bakersfield

  • Gay & Lesbian Center of Bakersfield (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Mixer is a social and networking gathering of local LGBT people including professionals and allies. With this mixer, the Center seeks to create an open and friendly environment where LGBT people of all ages and gender identity come together without a specific agenda on a drop-in basis. The Center provides refreshments and hors d'oeuvres.  We believe we have the perfect recipe for engaging conversation, great camaraderie and nurturing great ideas.

Every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. // Every Saturday from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Bakersfield Marriage Equality Rally

Bakersfield Marriage Equality Rally

The U.S. Supreme Court announced that they will hear all four marriage equality cases in front of them on Tuesday, April 28, and that a ruling will most likely be announced in late June / early July of 2015. The decision in this case is likely to be the precedent for LGBT rights language legally used for many years to come; it is critically important that this decision go our way!

Like in 2013, a coalition of organizations and dedicated local organizers will be working together leading up to the oral arguments and Decision Day to make clear to the Supreme Court that the American public supports marriage equality, and that now is the time to rule once and for all that all couples -- gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and straight -- are entitled to the same rights and protections of marriage. If this language is clearly supportive of marriage, it will be used in all manner of cases affecting transgender, gender non-binary, and bisexual/pansexual rights as well. We all have a stake in this.  

In Bakersfield, we will once again break out our pink GAY IS GOOD shirts, (or your favorite LGBT shirt and flag,) and meet OUTSIDE the Outback Steakhouse corner on Stockdale Hwy at 5pm on April 28. Come by after work on your way home; we'll be there till 7pm. There is plenty of parking nearby and you don't have to walk very far.

Brides of March

Hello, Lovelies! Here's the route! We start at the Merc, sashay over to Capitol Dime, St. Johns Lutheran for a photo op, then go on to Goodwill. From the Goodwill, we head to Sapporo Grill on 16th, and then to J where most of us could avoid Streets of London (or not, up to you), but maybe hit The Tank House and then head down 20th toward The Depot, Faces, etc. for the after-party. Wear comfortable shoes! 

Needless to say, we're open to ideas--if you have places you'd like to see or do, send word! :)

Don your *best* wedding finery and join us as we stroll through midtown Sacramento visiting local bars, shopping, tossing bouquets, and generally causing a ruckus. All you need for this event is a wedding dress, the wackier and more elaborate the better. You can check your local thrift stores for suitable gear, or fashion something from toilet paper and trash bags...sky's the limit!
