NSHP hosts the "Under The Rainbow" LGBTQ+ Coffeehouse on the first Monday of every month* from 6:30pm-8:30pm in our living room at 5 Center St. Gloucester MA. This all ages alcohol-free series is a great way to socialize with local LGBTQ+ folks and listen to some great live music. Every month features a 30 minute set from queer singer-songwriter or musical act. Potluck begins at 6:30 and music at 7:30. Feel free to bring food to share, or just bring yourself. Previous performers include Kara Kulpa, CiCi Eberle, Mark Lipman, Deb Hardy, Kerr Griffin, Calvin Lamothe and more. In addition, free confidential HIV and STI testing is available in another room throughout the evening. This series is supported by a grant from the Boston Sisters Of Perpetual Indulgenceand private donations. *If the first Monday is a holiday, we usually schedule the coffeehouse for the following Monday.
