On Friday, Feb 13, Point Nun Sister Eunice X was joined by Sisters Rosetta Stone and Gloria LeLuia, as well as Novice Sister Shiny Brite and Aspirant Grace A’Gawd for communal facing at The Convent, where we were also accompanied by Altered Boy Devin. We struck out for Umbria Prime at 8:30 PM, and after a delightful tour of downtown and a loop back around Government Center, we reached our destination. There we joined with Brother Bimbo, who was visiting from Scotland.
At The Welcoming Committee Gives Back event, we worked the door and also the patrons, and we raised a ton of cash to be split between the LGBT Asylum Support Task Force and the GLBTQ Domestic Violence Project (amount TBD).
The night allowed us not only to help two important local charities, but also to introduce ourselves to a fantastic segment of our community that we have not engaged previously. And it was just amazing fun!
Around 1:00 AM we said our goodbyes, made our ways home through the absolutely devastating arctic blast polar vortex frozen tundra of a Boston February night (temp 1 F, windchill -13 F). And at last found the warmth of hearth and home.
And there was much rejoicing.
