Queer Soup Night

Queer Soup Night

About

Queer Soup Night is a queer party with soup at its center! Come early for the soup, stay late for the love! Founded 2017 in Brooklyn by Liz Alpern, each event raises money for a community org, highlights the talent of queer chefs, and nourishes our community by gathering in an atmosphere of authentic inclusiveness.

April's Queer Soup Night is benefiting the The LGBT Asylum Project - Center for Immigrant Protection.
This non-profit organization is exclusively dedicated to providing high quality legal representation for LGBT immigrants who are fleeing persecution and seeking asylum in the United States.
The LGBT Asylum Project works closely with partnering organizations and have an established referral system to ensure that clients receive the most suitable and appropriate services based on each case. Their clients originate from all over the world, including countries such as Uganda, Nigeria, Mexico, Peru, Venezuela, Vietnam, China, Jordan, Turkey, Russia, Ukraine, and Saudi Arabia, which are known for extreme and violent persecution of LGBT communities.

The LGBT Asylum Project provides support to immigrants in the San Francisco Asylum Office jurisdiction (from Bakersfield, CA to Seattle, WA), identify as LGBTQ, and have been persecuted or have fears of future persecution if they return to their home country.
