Saturday May 16th

Let's dance to the beat of RI Pride by attending
RIWA's Pre-Pride Dance on May 16th.   Come celebrate Pride’s success
in combating discrimination while supporting equal rights for all. 
Where best to sport a little rainbow spirit by attending this colorful event???

RI Pride is already focusing on its annual June PrideFest.
RIWA wants to ignite the feeling of Pride among women by inviting the
soon-to-be-chosen Miss Rhode Island Lesbian 2015.

Our hall will be decorated with Pride colors, and each attendee will receive a rainbow peace necklace. This dance welcomes women of all ages. Have a favorite dance tune? Don't hesitate to post your requests, send them to Steering Committee members, or submit to DJ Sharon when you get to the dance.

In addition to your pot luck dishes, RIWA will provide a few popular Italian delights. 
Doors open by seven, and the food sharing table will open approximately at 7:30 PM. Plan for a high energy, entertaining and lively event. Remember as always, this is a BYOB dance party.

We’ll also provide
coffee, soda, water, and ice. 
BYOB, or anything else you’d like.  

Bring a potluck dish all are welcome at the sharing table, even if the
dish is simple.

The dance is held at Letter Carriers Hall,
174 Mayfield Avenue,
Cranston, RI on
Saturday, May 16.
