Nightmare on Normal Street is just over a  week away, and as you gear up to take part in that, have a look at what this week has to offer including the debut of DJ Dirty Kurty at Overdrive. Kurty is one of the most sought-after DJs in the local circuit and together with Overdrive it's certainly going to be a night to remember. 

But before that, it's time to reflect on those who have served the community and give them their place in history by way of the Community Wall of Honor at The Center. 

Also this week there are Bear events galore as they celebrate a quarter of a century in San Diego.

Then grab a pencil and head out to #1 Fifth Avenue for a night of Rocky Horror Pictionary. 

What a great week of fun and excitement in this week's "Out & About." Take a look: 

Giving Thanks

The Community Wall of Honor at The Center is one of the nation’s only LGBT community memorial displays dedicated to honoring and remembering important local LGBT community members. Established in 2004, the Wall recognizes and celebrates those San Diego LGBT community members and allies who have had a significant positive impact upon the San Diego LGBT community.   Come out for the Wall of Honor 2019 Induction Ceremony at the LGBT Community Center.

The Weekly Meet-Up

The Porto Vista Hotel has always been one of the gems of San Diego. It's a place for the community to spend some time, have some drinks and socialize just before the weekend.  SDPIX Presents Top of the Bay at the Porto Vista Hotel, a place to meet-up and make plans for the upcoming weekend. 

Speaking Out

Join the San Diego Library for Tongues Untied: 30th Anniversary Screening by late filmmaker Marlon Riggs. California Newsreel director and colleague of Riggs’ Cornelius Moore who was involved in the film’s production and appeared in the cast will lead the discussion after the film.

Made to “shatter this nation’s brutalizing silence on matters of sexual and racial difference”, this bold and beautiful film combines poetry, performance, and music into a personal and universal statement on the experiences and resulting persecution of Black gay men. Met with a storm of controversy that reached all the way to Congress, Tongues Untied remains a radical act of representation.

Chills at The Eagle

Super excited for the Halloween Party at the San Diego Eagle? You will be. They are having a Halloween costume contest that starts at 10 pm and the contest is at midnight! We will have 3 categories: spooky, kinky and funny! They will have prizes and jello shots for sell!
