Queens Talk Two Year Anniversary Banquet

It is with great pleasure that we are moving forward with our two year anniversary banquet. We are celebrating two years of programming at Carson Place 180 Mt Vernon St, Dorchester, MA 02125 from 5:00PM-10:00PM on Sunday, December 16th, 2018. Our theme for the banquet is Embracing the Light Within.

Queens Talk is a monthly women’s empowerment meet-up for women of color. It is an inclusive space for all women-aligned, femme, trans, and gender non-conforming folk of all ages. This program provides a platform for community members to connect with each other through small group discussions, story-telling activities, presentations, and relationship-building exercises to promote growth, introspection, and personal development while bridging the generational gaps that we often witness as women enter into adulthood.

The mission of Queens Talk is to engage women in deep and thought-provoking conversations that will encourage growth and personal development while aiming to connect women to resources in the community that could best serve and benefit their self-growth as well as establishing self-care strategies that are highly effective towards making necessary progress along the way.

At this banquet, there will be very interactive discussion topics and questions, guest speakers Irvienne Goldson and Celeste the Therapist, performances by Oompa, Priscilla Azaglo, and Sol E. Soul, raffles/prizes, testimonials from past participants, buffet dinner, open cash bar, lots of amazing WOC local businesses and vendors, dance floor, photobooth by Ellie Nguyen of 3ary July, and many more!!! DJ WhySham will be setting the tone all night.

Early bird tickets are $30 – the deadline for early bird tickets is November 30th. Regular admission tickets are $40 – the official RSVP deadline for the banquet is December 14th. This anniversary banquest is open to everyone.
