This social is hosted by the Arlington Gay and Lesbian Alliance (AGLA). When you arrive, you’ll be greeted by AGLA Board members.Everyone is welcome to attend regardless of where they live, so invite all you friends. June 28th marks a historic day in the gay community.The Stonewall riots were a series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations against a police raid that took place in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, at the Stonewall Inn, in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of New York City. The demonstrations are frequently cited as the first instance in American history when people fought back against a government-sponsored system that persecuted sexual minorities, and they have become the defining event that marked the start of the gay rights movement in the United States and around the world.

This popular social will be open to everyone. If you do make a reservation for dining, please make it in your own name of course, as there will be no specific group table. Call Freddie’s ahead to make a dinner reservation, as seating is limited.

Join AGLA today and support a wonderful community org. Support this fabulous nonprofit even if you don’t live in Arlington, as it serves as a beacon for equality in the DC metro/NoVA area.

As community service, if you can, please bring along travel-sized unused soaps, shampoos, lotions, etc. for A-SPAN, which provides life-sustaining services for Arlington’s street homeless. Or clean out your cupboard of unused nonperishable food items for AFAC, the community leader in providing and promoting dignified access to nutritious food for all Arlingtonians in need. The social will serve as a convenient collection point.

People from all over the world will be attending. For excitement, look forward to meeting and mingling with members of other local LGBT groups. Let’s all celebrate Pride! Allies welcome too of course. Freddie’s was voted the Best Virginia Bar by Washington Blade readers. Don’t like a smoky bar? You are covered: Freddie’s is a smoke-free establishment. (Ashtrays are provided outside the building if smoking is ‘your thing’).No cover charge. Name tags will be provided. (Oh, remember to bring your ID, as everyone who enters is carded of course! 21 or over.)

Special Message from the President:

We do hope you can join us for the Tiffany Joslyn Scholarship Reception on May 6th.

Each year AGLA awards one outstanding high school senior with a $2,500 scholarship. Recipients are members of their school’s Gay Straight Alliance or whose accomplishments demonstrate significant support for school system policies of diversity, fairness, and safety, as demonstrated in an essay.

AGLA founded the scholarship in 2001 during its 20th anniversary year. By providing some of the resources necessary to attend college, AGLA has helped numerous students with a demonstrated commitment to equality. To ensure that AGLA is able to continue our commitment of providing scholarships for worthy seniors, AGLA will hold a reception on Saturday, May 6, 2017 from 11:00 a.m.-1 p.m. at the home of Mr Jeffrey Liteman 1 South Lexington Street, Arlington, VA, 22204, near Route 50 and Carlin Springs. Many community leaders will be attending.
If you are interested in being on the host committee for the reception we would love to have you join us in this most worthy cause. Serving on the host committee is a generous way to help out without having to do any volunteering at the event. All host committee contributors will be recognized for their generosity. Donations can be made online at or by mail to AGLA, P.O. Box 100324, Arlington, VA 22210. Please write on the check or in the online form comments box that it is specifically for the AGLA Scholarship Fund. Donations are tax-deductible.
