WRAC to hold Pride Month Coffeehouse

IOWA CITY, Iowa — Pride Month celebrations continue with the Pride Coffeehouse this Friday, June 25th at 7:30 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Society located at 10 South Gilbert Street.

The University of Iowa Women's Resource and Action Center (WRAC), which hosts monthly women's performance nights during the academic year, is sponsoring the open mike night as part of LesBiGayTrans Pride Month. "The free event, which is scheduled to kick off with laughter and rainbow cookies, is open to women and men," says co-organizer Angie Lellig.

"Last year we had everything from people singing show tunes to a dramatic reading of a softball roster to an eight-year-old telling jokes with her mom," Lellig adds.

For more information, or to sign up for the open mike, call the Women’s Center at 335-1486.
