It’s a place for black, queer women to meet, relax, and release. On Saturday, October 7th from 8 pm to midnight, Bakari Jones presents Her Sweet Release at the Living Well (235 Holliday Street), located in downtown Baltimore with ample free street parking nearby.

“This event offers a chance to break out your good clothes, splash on the smell good, and meet beautiful black female queers in the area,” says the organizer. If you’ve experienced Bakari Jones’s “Wine & LesbiFriends,” then you know you’re in for a night of more than just drinking and standing around. If you attend as a couple, solo, or with a group of friends you can look forward to an interactive experience that leaves you feeling connected, inspired, and, if you do it right, incredibly sexy!

Admission includes music by DJ Lady Mysterious, vocalist Patience Sings, an art installation, “Phenomenal Woman” (curated by artist Kairo Miles), hors d’oeuvres (including vegan options), and an open bar featuring signature cocktails created with locally sourced produce.

The event is open to all who identify as black, queer / lesbian women. Women of all gender expressions are welcome, but organizers say those under 25 are not welcome (bring a picture ID). The dress code is “creative cocktail.” When you register, give your beverage and dietary preferences to help guide preparation.

Tickets are $59.02 for singles, $53.74 for early birds, and $106.49 for couples. All ticket sales are final but are are transferable to a future event. For tickets or more info it’s or email
