7/31 Q-wave Coffee Hour

July 26, 2011

Hello Q-wavers!

We are happy to announce the return of Coffee Hour this month!!!

If you got a postcard from us during Pride, or heard about it from a friend, and want to come see what Q-wave and Coffee Hours are like, this is a great opportunity to meet folks in a chill environment. If you’ve been to one or two events, it’s a great way to reconnect with Q-wave. If you are an old timer, well… come on down….what are you waiting for. =D

This month we are going back to our coffee roots. We’ve picked a cafe in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It’s a cool, laid back cafe with a great vibe..

Come ‘N Hang Out Coffee Hour
This is a monthly event for everyone who is queer, LBTQ, questioning, and curious! We are here to talk about our concerns, questions, coming-out, staying-in, joy, fear, and all things that happen along the way of these experiences! We’re here to support each other. We’re here to have fun! If you think you’re anywhere from 0.001% to 100% queer, join us at Come ‘N Hang Out!

Kathy Huang | 56min | USA | Indonesian w/ES
Clearview Chelsea | 6:30PM | August 11, 2011

In Indonesia, there lives a unique community of men who live openly as women. Known as Warias, these individuals must balance their identity with intimacy, and their Islamic faith. In this eye-opening documentary, four Warias tell the tales of their search for companionship and someone to love.

Yew Kwang Han | 81min | Singapore | Mandarin, Hainanese, Teochew dialect w/ES
Clearview Chelsea | 8:30PM | August 11, 2011

An argument over a missing bra results in Ms. Teochew, a “womanly” man, having to move in with Hainan-boy, a “manly” woman. Not your typical romance, the unusual pair grows closer as they face an angry landlord, an estranged father, a sickly mother, and a crazy ex-girlfriend. Could this be the start of a beautiful relationship?
