Engender: A living lineage

Engender is Queer Asterisk’s annual community gala. Each year, we invite the public to join us for an evening fundraiser to celebrate and sustain our vital work in the field of queer mental health. 


At this year’s gala, A Living Lineage, we will remember chosen ancestors who showed us the way, and dream into collective queer futures for those yet to come.


Do you remember the first person who sparked your authenticity to come alive? Whose existence helped you to feel, in your bones, that you could truly be who you are? Someone who expanded your sense of possibility, for yourself and the world around you? A glitch in the matrix? A Yes in a sea of No’s?


A queer life is an opening, a portal into the space of radical acceptance. When one person embodies who they really are, their life becomes a thread of endless possibility. 


Join us virtually on October 13th, 2022 as we gather the threads to create a symbol of our eternal weaving, and help us fund a future where mental health care is accessible and supportive for all queer and trans people!
