The consumption of coffee is an everyday part of countless cultures; in fact, It is often estimated that a billion cups are consumed a day. We seek it out for its stimulating effect each morning, or to recharge in the afternoon. However, how much do you really know about the dark elixir of energy? Have you ever thought about the work that goes into your daily cup of joe? Or, how it is harvested, processed, shipped, and the numerous ways it can be prepared?

Join us for an overview of this highly consumed, yet often overlooked beverage. We will talk about and demonstrate different methods of brewing and then partake of this magical potion.  To sweeten the deal, brunch will be served to compliment your coffee experience.

If you would like to join us, please email [email protected] with the number of people in your party so we can plan accordingly.

A LOOK AT THE TRANSFORMATION EVENT

This event was a partnership between SAGE, Transaction and Project Rainbow.  It was the first event of its kind at the Pride Center.  117 people attended including participants, vendors, allies, community partners and amazing volunteers.

This event was designed to give people a day to be their authentic self.  We had clothing stylists, makeup artists, hair stylists, barbers, nail artists, voice coaches and improv coaches.  Folks chose new clothing, did makeovers including hair cuts, styles or even wigs, worked with the voice and improv coaches and finished the day on the cat-walk where perhaps for the first time ever, they were able to present the most authentic version of themselves.  It was positive, supportive and dedicated to folks being comfortable in their own skin.

People laughed, people cried, people found their voice, people made friends and people felt empowered  Participants ranged in ages from 18 into their mid-70’s.  Friendships were formed across the generations, advice was shared and lives were changed that day.  People were confident, happy, loving and most of all, they were real.

Thank you to all who participated.  Thank you to the SAGE team for getting community partners, thank you to everyone who donated through our beauty drive, thank you to our volunteers, thank you to Project Rainbow for providing the clothes and shoes, thank you to everyone who came out to support, volunteer or participate.  Here are just a few of our pictures.
