VANCOUVER – Organized by Syrian refugee and Grand Marshall of last year’s Gay Pride Parade Danny Ramadan, An Evening in Damascus is an evening of celebration and pride where Syrian and LGBTQ culture intersect.

The event serves as a fundraiser for two sponsorship programs focused on bringing LGBTQ Syrian refugees to Canada, one called The Divine Road and the other Journey to Canada, and also celebrates Damascus, the nation’s capital, and the beauty of an older Syria before the turmoil of war.

Featuring the delicious food of Tayybeh (a culinary group comprised of Syrian women who prepare their hometown cuisines) and entertainment from belly dancer Khadiejah, An Evening in Damascus is a night rooted in love, compassion, and community.

An Evening in Damascus takes place on July 28 at the Roundhouse Community Centre.
