From 10:00 p.m., 274 Delaware Ave.

Buffalo Anti-Gentrification Summit at Hope Sevices
9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at 385 Paderewski Dr.

People tend to associate LGBTQ folks with urban renewal because we have a history of coming into impoverished areas and prettying them up. But there’s another layer to that conversation – several layers, actually. Buffalo is not unique in its struggle against gentrification. This grapple for space intensifies already existing issues of racism, classism, and sexism… values clash, and the wealthy displace the vulnerable. Gentrification directly impacts every one of us. Join the conversation about it at this ‘public teach-in.’ To register, go to the Facebook event page and click on the link in the details section.


Oktobearfest Bear Night at Preservation Pub
10:00 p.m. on at 948 Main Stree

The Buffalo Bears’ monthly party has a hearty, beer drinking, fall-season-feel to it this Saturday, but it doubles as an opportunity to donate canned goods and warm clothing to “Friends of Night People” – bring a donation and your cover charge is waived.


6th Annual Queen & King of the Damned Pageant at Club Marcella
