90 Days, a film by Nathan Hale Williams & Jennia Fredrique Aponte

"A riveting story of love, integrity and compassion, 90 DAYS explores a beautiful couple's relationship and their life altering decision after ninety days of dating." - Synopsis from www.90daysthefilm.com

Sponsored by the Kansas City Melting Pot Theatre and Gilead Sciences, Inc. this night of the arts will include a film screening, discussion panel, and reception for everyone 21+.

As we kick off Black History Month, we wanted to promote the concept of paying it forward by having you "Uplift to Success". We all know someone that may be in need of an opportunity but are having difficulty landing the right ones. This is often due to not having the resume that properly reflects our skills and most times, not knowing how to effectively convey our VALUE compared to our counterparts. SEEK Resources is dedicated to filling in that gap. 

Did you watch Keemstar's Friday Fortnite Tournaments and wished you could compete in them yourself? Well now you will get your chance! Grab your duo partner and come to NovaStar every Friday to play and have a chance to compete. 

Rap Asylum curates showcases of the best emcees and producer's in the greater Kansas City area. For the February edition, we will invite Jazz and R&B to provide the soundtrack for our Pre-Valentine's Day Jam. Come through and hear what we've got going on!

Grab a friend and get ready to brunch like you've never brunched before! Brunched is the one time you can sample breakfast dishes from various local brunch spots, all in one place. Your ticket includes bites & sips.

You are invited to come celebrate 111 years of sisterhood as we rededicate ourselves to a foundation of love and service to all mankind.

What's Queer Bar Takeover KC? On the second Saturday of each month, we select a traditionally straight bar or nightclub and invite ourselves in. The location is announced the week of the event. The goal is to create more public spaces for the LGBT community and to provide the straight community with the opportunity to engage with people they may not otherwise encounter.
