After lots of planning, we are finally hosting our first queer meetup event next month at this amazing family-run Ethiopian cafe. And while this meetup is intended to be more queer-specific, the event is all-inclusive and organizers will not turn anyone away as long as they are queer-friendly and enjoy amazing veg cuisine.”
