(San Francisco, Calif. – May 13, 2013) EDEN Pride Events http://www.edensacramento.com is proud to announce its first-ever partnership with One Night Stand for its EDEN Sacramento Pride After Party on Saturday, June 15, 2013.
Grace Childs and Sumaria “Sam” Love, girlfriends and producers of One Night Stand http://www.meetup.com/Queer-One-Night-Stand/ and The Lick http://www.yelp.com/events/sacramento-the-lick-a-party-produced-by-womyn… have joined forces with EDEN Pride Events for EDEN Sacramento Pride. This is Childs and Love’s first year co-producing an event with EDEN Pride Events, the women said.
“I feel really excited and honored that I’m going to be able to be a part of this,” said Childs. “This is going to be such a wonderful opportunity to create something really different for Sacramento Pride.”
“We are very excited to partner with Grace and Sam. They have been very gracious in welcoming EDEN to Sacramento. Their producing style and mission align with ours and we are very happy to be co-producing the After Party with them.” , said Christine De La Rosa, producer of EDEN Pride Events, which produces all-weekend events and parties for women and their friends in conjunction with Pride events around the San Francisco Bay Area.
2012 was the first time EDEN produced EDEN Sacramento. EDEN’s Sacramento After Pride Party hosted more than 500 women last year.
The producers anticipate upward of 500 LGBTQ folks to attend EDEN’s Sacramento After Pride Party at Shenanigans http://www.shenaniganssacramento.com/, 705 J St., Sacramento, this year.
Sacramento’s queer women and transgender communities are hungry for events created by-and-for them, said Childs and Love.
“We heard the cry for the needs and we are trying to fulfill it,” said Love, who co-produces The Lick, Sacramento’s newest monthly queer women’s social event.
The Lick has caught on fire recently attracting up to 100 women to unique dance parties and social events, said the 40-year old lesbians.
“We want to create more of a space for women, our friends and allies in Sacramento,” added Childs.
Love added that she reached out to EDEN Pride Events to help create that space.
“I feel that Sacramento has a very vibrant LGBTQ community with not a lot of places for women, queers, trans and allies to gather for nightlife. When Sam and Grace approached me to mentor them on putting together a monthly event I was thrilled. I always believe it helping others to produce positive spaces in their own communities.” , said De La Rosa.
The women are excited about co-producing EDEN Sacramento After Pride Party will be better than ever before.
