Boston Lesbian Annual Events

By Charlotte Robinson, October 16, 2018
Two fabulous annual lesbian events are taking place on October 20th in Boston. The first is the Fenway Health’s 20th Annual Audre Lorde Cancer Awareness Brunch that takes place at the NonProfit Center at 89 South Street in downtown Boston from 10A to 1P. This year’s theme is “20 Years of Community, Celebration & Growth” celebrating the rich history of this event which brings together women of color affected by cancer to celebrate their lives. The inaugural Judy Bradford Community Grant will be awarded to janhavi madabushi & Kamaria Weems Carrington for their project Cultivate: Queer Healing Lab at this year’s Brunch. Started in 1999, the Audre Lorde Cancer Awareness Brunch is named in memory of Audre Lorde, a self-described “Black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet.” Lorde dedicated both her life & her creative talent to confronting & addressing the injustices of racism, sexism & homophobia. Denise Bentley created the event for lesbian & bisexual black women affected by cancer in memory of her late wife Lorraine “Faye” Fayette Johnson. Then from 8P to12A is the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition 21st Annual Lesbians & Friends LGBTQ Dance Party For Prevention that takes place at the Brookline-Boston Holiday Inn located at 1200 Beacon Street in Brookline, MA. Hundreds of women will come together to celebrate & hope for a future free of breast cancer. Founded in 1992 by a few savvy lesbian women MBCC is the only breast cancer non-profit working closely with their research organization Silent Spring Institute to investigate preventable & environmental causes of the disease. This is a fundraiser & their goal is to raise at least $20,000.
