The event was held at the People’s Republic in Cambridge, and attracted about 50 people, Heller said. Heller said the group attracts about an equal number of men and women, and while the events tend to draw a more ‘professional crowd,’ college students frequent them as well.
One of those students is Paul Sousa, a senior mechanical engineering major, who receives e-mails and Facebook notifications each month from the groups organizers informing him of where the next venture will be the first Friday of every month.
During Guerrilla Queer Bar nights, participants wear pins depicting Latin American rebel Che Guevara, superimposed with singer Cher’s face, combining a revolutionary guerrilla icon with a GLBT community icon, he said.
‘The first time I went, we went at Liquor Store [a bar near Downtown Crossing], and I saw a lot of people wearing these buttons that signify the event,’ he said.
Members of Guerrilla Queer Bar have since frequented Liquor Store. Their latest event, which was held Friday, took place there. The group has also held events at Bell in Hand, The Kells, Estate, Tequila Rain and Honk Kong.
In addition to the monthly Friday night outing, Boston Guerrilla Queer Bar hosts local nights, which take place weekdays, and charity events, which are held every other month. Charity nights run on the third Thursday of every month, and take place at selected bars, as well. Money generated from those nights is donated to a charity that works to promote GLBT rights, including marriage rights, according to the organization’s website.
This initiative began in January, as did the launch of the local events, and the organization has since raised money for equal marriage rights organization MassEquality and will be working with the Boston Living Center, a non-profit for AIDS patients, later this month, Heller said.
Though the events are created mainly as an outlet for the GLBT community, Heller said all are welcome.
