Out for Business at Allen Burger Venture
5-7pm, 175 Allen St.
Buffalo’s premiere LGBTQ networking event is always a great opportunity to meet and greet, a chance to have a drink with community friends you don’t always get to see and possibly make some new ones. Even if you’re a fledgling entrepreneur or are just thinking about launching a small business, this is a great opportunity to find other folks in the community that can champion your efforts and potentially help point you towards success. This month’s mixer is at the Allen Burger Venture, btwn Delaware and Elmwood, across from Grindhaus, and is sponsored by Mass Mutual NYS. Be one of the first 50 people to arrive and you’ll get a free drink from organizers

No lesbian bars in Buffalo? No problem. Ambush takes over a venue once a month for these hot parties, and July’s is bound to be a blast, taking place on the rooftop patio of Skybar — Buffalo’s only ‘open-air rooftop nightclub experience’. Combining excellent views of downtown, private VIP Cabanas and fantastic drink prices, you don’t want to miss this. And you also don’t need to be a gay woman to attend – male allies, gender fluid folks… everyone is welcome so long as you believe in inclusion and can leave your baggage at the door. Admission is free and dancing is encouraged.

3rd Annual TransGen Beach Day Bash at Woodlawn Beach State park
Noon-4pm, 3580 Lake Shore Rd., Hamburg
Some trans and gender expansive people feel like they cannot go swimming after beginning transition, so this event was created to help support gender-diverse folks in going to the beach and being visible together. This is most definitely meant to be a family friendly event, so partners and allies are welcome! The group will meet at Woodlawn Beach State Park, which is just 15 minutes south of Buffalo. Email Shevy for details or with questions/concerns: firstname.lastname@example.org.
