"Valentine's Gay" dance 2/14

EQuality Champaign-Urbana (C-Us LGBT activist group) is hosting a LGBT Valentine's Day dance 2/14 at the Clark Bar from 8pm-1am.

From the Facebook page(http://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=events#!/event.php?eid=271363742077):

Don't you hate how Valentine's Day only celebrates heterosexual love? Well this Valentine's Day join us at Clark Bar where we will celebrate ALL kinds of love! So if you're gay, straight, bi, trans or just really, really want to hook up, come out and have a drink with us.

There will be a stage with a microphone, so leaders/reps for any LGBT (and LGBT supportive) clubs can have a chance to speak for their organization.

Cover: $3 dollars at the door (probably cheaper than C Street). Proceeds will go to eQuality C-U to finance our continued fight for LGBT rights!

Please come out and support us on this night of fun!
