DYKESTRAVAGANZA & THE SEATTLE DYKE MARCH
On Friday, June 14, with two unique shows at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m., at Seattle Rendezvous Jewelbox Theater (2322 2nd Ave.), Lily Divine Productions, purveyors of Seattle's hottest Queer burlesque, is paying tribute to the Seattle Dyke March with a titillating, raucous and oh-so-glittery evening that you do not want to miss. There was just too much sexiness and hilarity to squeeze into one show, so join us for two unique performances that celebrate the diversity of Dyke culture. Proceeds will go directly to the 2013 Seattle Dyke March, and tickets can be purchased online at www.lilydivine.com or at the door. There will be a raffle during each performance featuring fabulous prizes from local sponsors and supporters of the Seattle Dyke March. Both shows will include ASL interpretation. The Jewelbox Theater has a limited amount of wheelchair-accessible seating, so please contact Lily Divine Productions directly (liz.cruz@lilydivine.com) to ensure accomodations. Tickets: $20 for each show or $25 for both shows, with a limited number of pay-what-you-can tickets. You must be 21 years of age or older to attend.

Since 1994, the Seattle Dyke March has promoted, supported and connect the Queer-identified, female-identified community by providing hundreds of speakers and performers as well as thousands of supporters an opportunity to publicly display community solidarity. This year the Seattle Dyke March will take place Saturday, June 29, at 5 p.m., at the Seattle Central Community College South Courtyard (Broadway & E. Pine St.) The Seattle Dyke March is a completely volunteer organization and we rely on your support to fund the permits, sound, interpretation and transportation services that make this event accessible to the entire community. If you are unable to attend this event, please consider supporting the Seattle Dyke March through the following links: www.gofundme.com/2nouwo; www.facebook.com/SeattleDykeMarch.

MUSIC OF REMEMBRANCE - SPARKS OF GLORY CONCERT: 'ANOTHER SUNRISE'
On Saturday, June 15, at 2 p.m., at Seattle Art Museum, Plestcheeff Auditorium (1st Ave. & University St.), Music of Remembrance presents Another Sunrise, an intense musical drama by acclaimed composer Jake Heggie and librettist Gene Scheer that tells the extraordinary story of Krystyna Zywulska. With her mother, Krystyna walked out of the Warsaw ghetto in broad daylight. As a member of the Polish resistance, she counterfeited identity cards and other documents. She was captured by the Gestapo in 1943 and sent to Auschwitz-Birkenau, where she wrote satiric poems that circulated secretly and became camp anthems of resistance. The program also includes the stunning Duo by Erwin Schulhoff, an iconoclastic innovator whose politics and avant-garde musical ideas were shaped by his disillusionment after World War I. MOR Artistic Director Mina Miller's discussion will add musical and historical background at this FREE concert-with-commentary. www.musicofremembrance.org

On Wednesday, June 19, at 6 p.m., join the Seattle Gay & Lesbian Book Club for a very special event in the best Pride tradition. This evening the club will celebrate a dearly beloved Gay poet whas has made all of us laugh - and absolutely no homework is necessary.

The book club is proud to present 'A Runcible Evening of Edward Lear' a nonsensical evening of verse, letters and song, performed by Brad Craft, with musical accompaniment by Michael Wallenfels, celebrating the bicentennial-plus-one of Edward Lear, the author of 'The Owl and the Pussycat' and some of the most delightful limericks ever written.

Edward Lear was the father of nonsense verse, bus also a great artist and Gay romantic, much disappointed in love, at least until he met his cat, Foss. Brad will tell the story of Lear's life, using a liberal selection of his poetry and letters, and Michael has set some of the verse to music. Feel free to bring treats to share, and wear your most runcible hat.

All GLBTQ folks are welcome to participate in this FREE book club. For more information, visit http://faculty.washington.edu/swittet/SGLBookClub/..
