Uptown Pride Block Party
As the people of Uptown know, there's some major construction happening yet again this summer around Lyndale Avenue and Lake Street. Our dire need for wider, fancier sidewalks and left-hand turn lanes aside, torn-up roads and orange cones won't stop Bryant-Lake Bowl from throwing an outdoor block party. Pride, acceptance, and community are the causes for celebration, with a portion of the proceeds going to OutFront Minnesota. There'll be a local artist flea market and organic food, and the North Star Rollergirls and participants from past years of the hip-hop festival B Girl Be will be on hand to entertain all. Live music includes transgender documentary subject Venus DeMars, who will be performing with her rock group, All the Pretty Horses; Black Blondie; Tina Schlieske; and Foxy Tann. Those looking to keep the shindig going can check out the after party featuring Dykes Do Drag and Queertopia for BLB-style cabaret.
