LmnOh, Q: Alphabet soup – A Monthly Queer Coffee Party

With the rise of the coffee shops came the rise of diversity in many neighborhoods, from city to city. Since the beginning, cafés have been places where ideas are born, discussed, and acted upon. For a while, it was bohemians, discussing poetry while donning Greek fishermen’s caps and Parisian berets, that stirred things up. These days, coffee shops are melting pots for all walks of life. They are meeting places that are considered safe, progressive, and open. That’s why they are the perfect venues for meet-ups such as “LmnOh, Q”.

Not sure exactly what these letters stand for? On Saturday, December 9, from 2pm to 5pm, Remedy House, a coffee house in the Five Points neighborhood, will be the location of a queer coffee party as part of the ongoing LmnOh, Q series.

Curious? Well, it’s time to learn more…

Who are we and what do we do? 

We’re a queer coffee party interested to add to Buffalo’s queer scene (outside of the bars) and to create a safe space for queers of all character.

How often does this take place?

Monthly (usually every fourth Saturday of the month) in Buffalo, NY at a different locally owned coffee establishment.

Stay tuned to LmnOh, Q on Facebook.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.

    The first coffee houses in Paris were hotbeds of revolutionary thought and activity in the late 18th century.

    Does anybody know the brand name or color name of the blue paint they used? I’ve always thought it particularly striking.

    Nice to see alternatives to alcohol

    “With the rise of the coffee shops came the rise of diversity in many neighborhoods, from city to city.”

    What does this even mean?

    • UrbanLove

      I extrapolated it to mean that coffee shops have, historically, been hotbeds of activity/connecting spaces for alternative cultures (aka the intelligentsia).
