TRUTH Project Kicks Off ‘We Are Gold’ Annual Fundraiser In Houston

 

The 2nd Annual T.R.U.T.H. Project Kicks Off Annual Fundraiser In Montrose In October.

HOUSTON Oct 5 — The time for TRUTH has come to Houston. The T.R.U.T.H Project kicks off its annual fundraiser In Houston on Oct. 22, 12016 in Montrose. Entitled We Are Gold will be held at Zimm’s Martini & Wine Bar.

The T.R.U.T.H. Project (Telling Real Unapologetic Truths through Healing) is a 501c3 charitable organization that educates and mobilizes LGBTQ communities of color and their allies through social arts that promote mental, emotional and sexual health. The impact on the community is very surreal said Founder Kevin Anderson.

“It’s humbling to have the support of artists and healthcare providers who understand the vision for using the arts as a tool for healing through information, education, and access to resources,” Anderson said.

This year’s fundraiser will include a montage of video clips from previous installments and live demonstrations of spoken word, live music, and visual art to showcase how the T.R.U.T.H. Project connects art and health.

Since its inception, The T.R.U.T.H Project has reached more than 5,000 attendees and continues to grow. Performances are held quarterly and have addressed issues such as bullying, domestic violence, and depression. The Texas State Department of Health recognized the efforts of the T.R.U.T.H. Project and its founder, Kevin Anderson, to use the arts as a vehicle for information, awareness, and access to resources, and awarded a grant that allowed him to extend his outreach by partnering with national recording artist such as Marsha Ambrosius and Chisette Michele. He has also served as a consultant in other cities interested in starting similar initiatives.

The Houston Gaymers, (one of the communities fastest growing LGBT+ organizations) are in a race and they plan to win it!

Considered the top organization, and the only LGBT+ out of the four competing at OKRA Charity Saloon to take home the bar’s monthly profit.

What’s OKRA you ask? OKRA is made up of a group of restaurant and bar owners in Houston that stand for Organized Kollaboration on Restaurant Affairs. The group is a charitable organization with very specific views on how the industry should operate and engage local communities.

Houston Gaymers are inviting the Greater Houston LGBT+ Community and Organizations, for a gathering at OKRA Charity Saloon this Saturday, January 30th, starting at 4:00 pm!

If the Houston Gaymers win they will use the winnings to keep events free for its nearly 2,000 person membership, as well as to realize its new charity initiative, ‘Project Blue Shell’. This initiative hopes to put games in the hands of sick and bedridden kids at local hospitals (starting at Texas Children’s Hospital) to aid them in their healing and give them comfort in a difficult time.

How does OKRA work?

  • Buy any bar item (Drinks, food, and soda are all valid!)
  • Receive a ticket from the bartender with your item
  • Drop your ticket into the charity bucket of your choice
  • The charity with the most votes at the end of the month wins the bars profits!!

As a bonus, the Houston Gaymers will be offering the first drink FREE to the FIRST 50 attendees! How cool is that? Just find a ‘Gaymer’ in their flashing blue wristband and they’ll get you set up!

Happy Hour runs 4:00PM – 6:30PM, with $3 drafts, $4 wells, and 1/2 price wine by the glass!
