Evan Weissman’s Warm Cookies of the Revolution is going strong into its second year, as more Denverites find their way to his unique civic gatherings. Tonight’s GLBTQ Intergenerational Show and Tell Mix Tape will focus on the presentation of personal stories through favorite songs. An all-ages panel will share their own musical picks and stories to get the ball rolling, then audience members will break off into small groups to do the same.
“If we are going to figure out what we want and how to get there as a community, it is important to know our past but also dream about the future,” Weissman says. “This LGBTQ-specific gathering is meant to celebrate successes and triumphs, while also looking at struggles. It is a gathering for everyone, because queer life touches everyone.”
Interested participants are encouraged to submit a song prior to the event, but are also welcome to bring a track along; Warm Cookies promises that all CDs, MP3s, cassettes and vinyl will be accommodated. If music doesn’t suit your fancy, an object with meaning will work, too.
The Show and Tell Mix Tape begins at 6 p.m. at the McNichols Building, 144 West Colfax Avenue. The evening is free, though donations are welcome. Cookies, milk and milk alternatives will be provided. For more information, visit warmcookiesoftherevolution.org.
