Charm City Kitty Club’s Inaugural Night Of Outlandish Performance

Dates: October 11, 2002
Times: Cocktails at 7:00pm
Show at 8:00pm
Show: Every Oct. 11, thousands of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people and allies celebrate National Coming Out Day, a tradition which began On Oct. 11, 1987, when half a million people marched on Washington for gay and lesbian equality.

In celebration of National Coming Out Day newly formed Charm City Kitty Club plumbs the shockingly rich diversity in Baltimore City and beyond to present a knock-out line-up of performance and music in a Cabaret-style in a new quarterly series at the Creative Alliance. Although music, performance and club environments abound for the dominate culture – straight, white, heterosexual. The Charm City Kitty Club carves out a unique social and cultural niche for lesbian, dyke, bisexual, transgender and transsexual women and all our allies.
