howdy Vermont queers!
Pop-Up QDP’s capacity continues to shift and change as we start this new year. We are going to focus on a few holiday parties this year – continuing to move away from an every month model, which was just unsustainable for critical mass of party goers and the expense of renting the spaces and paying DJs and such. Here is what we are thinking for 2015:
- the now annual WAYNE’S WIFFLEBALL GAME – sometime when it gets warmer.
- Friday, September 11th – 4th QUEER PRIDE PARTY (as part of Vermont Pride that whole weekend).
- Saturday, October 31st – QUEER HALLOWEEN
- Thursday, December 31st – NEW QUEERS EVE
We are working on venues for all these parties, so stay tuned for more details on this website & our facebook page.
Thanks for all being so swell.

Join us and Wayne’s family, as we honor his memory with the placing of his brick, between 4-4:30pm on Friday, September 12th.
In the late spring, we lost Wayne Beam – a pillar in our queer community. For many years, by day he worked with Vermonters of different abilities, by night he tended bar at queer and larger community events, concerts, and shows.
The loss of Wayne impacted many and thanks to a summer fundraising campaign, we were able to raise the funds to have a memorial granite brick installed in the Church Street Marketplace during Pride weekend.
Location on Church St. TBA.
Please pass the word on facebook! Thanks to Pride Vermont for helping to gather the community at this event!
