Hi everyone, Behemoth here! 😸
Here’s a brief overview of what we’ve done this week and are planning to do in the future. 😇
Firstly, we invite you to march with us at Baltic Pride in Tallinn! If you’re interested, let us know and write to firstname.lastname@example.org. 😄
Secondly, we have new stickers celebrating marriage equality (which hopefully comes true) and these are completely free. 🏳️🌈 Of course, we also have a huge pile of other free stickers. Come and have a look! 😘
Thirdly, we have some LGBT+ artists’ works on display at our center, which can be purchased. You can also bring your own work for sale – just come by one day and we’ll agree on the terms! 😇
Fourthly, Maria Izabella Lehtsaar’s exhibition “Sweet as Honey” is still on display at our center. Be sure to come and see it before the exhibition ends!
Fifthly, our usual events took place this week: art circle, board game night, handicraft circle, and book club.
On Monday, we met with representatives from organizations Vikerruum and Tartu LGBT+ to talk about Pride Month events, including Baltic Pride, which takes place from June 6th to 11th in Tallinn. 🏳️🌈 We also came up with some great events in Tartu, which we can’t talk about just yet (big secrets!). 🤫
On Tuesday, we held a meeting with volunteers to thank them and discuss our future plans. We had a productive meeting, and it was also great to talk to each other again for a longer time. If you want to become a volunteer, write to us at email@example.com. 😘
On Tuesday, we also had our usual art club! This time we didn’t have a specific theme, we just drew and painted together. The art club takes place every Tuesday from 6 pm to 8 pm, and next week we’ll be making collages together! 🥳
On Wednesday, we played board games together, and the most popular game among volunteers right now is “Railroad Ink.” If you have a board game you’d like to play with someone, but nobody at home wants to play it – come and play with us! 🎲 Board game nights take place every Wednesday from 5 pm to 8 pm, but of course, we’re ready to play board games on other days as well.
On Thursday, we did handicrafts together, again in a free format. If you have a project you’re working on and would like to do it in a fun company, come and visit us! Of course, those who don’t do or don’t know how to do handicrafts are also welcome – if necessary, we’ll teach you, if not, we’ll just hang out with you. 😘
Our book club met for the second time on Friday, and we’re currently reading Casey McQuiston’s “One Last Stop”. If you want to join the book club, but don’t have this book at hand, come to our center – we have two copies. 😉 The next book club meeting will take place on April 28th at 6 pm.
On Friday, we also met with members of the Open Estonia Foundation, who represent the Active Citizens Fund, which funds our current project. It was a great meeting, and we received valuable feedback on our activities. Thank you for coming to visit us! 💖 You can read more about our project here.
We had a meeting with the organizers of the 6ede6õrgu6idu on Friday. We’ll keep the details of our discussion to ourselves for now. 🙏 We also had a visit from Schrödinger the cat, who was very well-behaved. Well-behaved cats are always welcome to visit us. 😻
Next Friday, our center will host the first meeting of a trans support group/discussion circle from 6pm to 8pm, and we invite you to join us. 🏳️⚧️ If you’d like to participate, please sign up.
