Outreach Committee Seeks Volunteers

The Outreach Committee of the Leather & LGBTQ Cultural District needs folks willing to help us in a number of projects:

1.  Pride Festival Booth

The Leather & LGBTQ Cultural District has been offered free booth space at the SF Pride Festival on Saturday, June 29 (from 12:00 Noon to 6:00 PM) and Sunday, June 30, from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM ).  We invite you to sign up here to help staff that booth.

You do not need to be an expert about the District to staff the booth: You will mostly be there to distribute brochures and encourage folks to sign up for our email list.  We will be sharing our booth with the Castro Queer Cultural District, so you will have plenty of company and support.  

Please sign up for as many shifts as you can.  I know many of you have major commitments during these times — especially on Parade Sunday.  If you are someone who does have some time available, your help would be greatly valued.  

If the form is not working for you, or if you would like to help in some way that doesn’t fit on the form, please let me know.

And if you can’t be with us for Pride, don’t worry:  you will have plenty of other chances to help us, we promise!

2.  Web Site Rebuild

The Cultural District is looking to rebuild its Web site on a new, independent platform.  If you have some skills in that area, we would love to have the benefit of your time and expertise.

3.  Outreach to Other Groups

Do you belong to any of the wonderful Leather- or LGBTQ- oriented groups or organizations in the Bay Area?  Would you be willing to take a few minutes at one of their meetings or events to tell them about the Cultural District?  We can prepare you, and give you brochures and other materials to share.  It’s easy, it’s fun, and it would be a big help!

4.  Represent us at Meetings

We also need folks to represent us at non-kinky, non-queer meetings and events:  We will need folks to liaison with the Western Soma Community Benefit District, SOMCAN (the South of Market Community Action Network) and attend the monthly meetings of the SoMa Community Council’s (SCC)’ Community Action Committee (CAC).  It may not be as much fun, but it is very important!  

5.  Other Outreach

Would you like to take on our “Twitter” account, and share occasional updates about our meetings, events, activities, and projects? Is there a place where you can put up posters announcing our meetings?  Or perhaps you have other ideas about how to help spread the word about the Cultural District.  Great!

If you would like to help in any of the above ways, or if you would like more information before deciding, please write to Outreach-chair@sflcd.org).
