PRIDE WEEK: FACETS Queer Youth Talent Showcase



Boulder County's OASOS Youth Support Group is teaming up with WhiteWave Foods to present this year's FACETS, a talent showcase for LGBTQ and Ally youth ages 12-25! This event will be our kickoff for Pride Week and we hope you can join us to support this year's diverse range of acts. For the second year, FACETS will be at Shine Restaurant and Gathering Place.

As a former OASOS volunteer myself, this event means a lot to me. Nothing makes me happier than seeing queer youth have the space to flourish and grow. I sincerely hope you'll be able to join us for this magical night.


With Great Anticipation,


Sara Connell [she, her, hers]

 Nudes with 'Tudes: A Nude Drawing Group

You are invited to Nudes with 'Tudes, (Figure Drawing for Every Body). This group meets every 4th Monday and starts at 7:15 PM. This is not a class, however you don't need to have any artistic training or experience to join.  All skill levels are welcome. Warm up exercises will be offered for those who would like structure to get started.
This monthly event is meant to both give aspiring models a chance to learn in a friendly, amateur group, as well as to provide a place for aspiring artists to learn more about their craft. No previous experience is required.

RSVP Required for drawing, email Tyler at tyler_alpern@yahoo.com to save your space or inquire about modeling

Pridefest wouldn't happen without the generous support of our volunteers. You can
click here to access the Google Drive document with of all the volunteer needs for the entire week of Pride events. If you are interested in volunteering please provide your name and e-mail next to the time and position you would prefer.

This year will be bigger than any of the previous years, which means we have a much higher need for volunteers. In addition to the satisfaction of knowing you've helped make Pride happen, all volunteers will also receive a "Volunteer" Pridefest T-shirt in a color that no one else will have!
