“We are a non-profit that hosts monthly dineouts at the best restaurants around the city for reduced prices,” explained organizer Justin Go. “More recently, our queer members have been demanding for a space where they can meet other queer vegans and vegetarians in a comfortable social setting. 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.”
