Please join Ethos on Thursday, April 1, 2021 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., for a special “Virtual” Welcome Back event for LGBT Seniors, Friends, Allies, and Supporters.

These are extraordinary times and the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the cancellation of so many activities and events that have been central to our LGBTQ Senior community. While we aren’t able to gather together in person, we will still be treated to a performance by Mar Fayos, a vocalist from Barcelona whose music is described as “Jazz fusion creations with Latin, Pop, Mediterranean and Soul influences.” Attendees will also have an opportunity to hear from Ethos CEO Valerie Frias and, socialize with friends.

This event will be held virtually via Zoom due to COVID-19 restrictions on gatherings. You must register to attend.
