It’s been a LONG two years of virtual events and small gatherings. Now that the weather is warm and it is safe to gather, Triad Health Project invites the community to come out for a mid-week evening of fun, festivities, and PLAY as we prepare for 2022’s Pride Season.

On May 26, we’ll host For Play: A Queer Night Out to PrEP for Pride at the beautiful Castle McCulloch! Don’t miss your opportunity to be part of the party and show your support for increased access to sexual health for everyone in Guilford County. Sexual health, reproductive health, sexual identity, and equitable access to healthcare are under attack like never before. Show your support and help Triad Health Project continue their work of breaking down the barriers of stigma and bigotry in our community.

We are joined by indie rock band The Collection, local R&B artist SunQueen Kelcey, and a drag show MCed by the one and only Brenda the Drag Queen!
