butchOUT brings back the Sunday tea dance to Asheville. The second Sunday of each month the fun and excitement happen all in support of a chosen beneficiary in the LGBTQ+ community.
An almost-lost tradition in the LGBTQ community late afternoons into early evenings revelers enjoyed cocktails and a spin on the dance floor. Tea dances have a radical, inclusive place in social justice history: providing space for LGBTQ people when they were criminalized for being themselves.
butchOUT invites you to be true, own your journey and dance!
