BENEFITING: QUEERS FOR ECONOMIC JUSTICE
EVENT DATE: May 19, 2012
Hosted by Queers for Economic Justice (QEJ), the Amazingly Queer Race is a competitive, clue-based scavenger hunt across New York City for a great cause: fighting poverty and homelessness in the LGBT community. QEJ works with other gay organizations to prioritize economic justice in the gay rights agenda while pushing allies who work on economic justice to remember that LGBT people are deeply impacted by those issues. Each team is asked to raise $500 to compete in the race (but we've challenged ourselves with a $1,000 goal), which might sound like a lot in this economy. Any amount helps, no matter how small.
