Upcoming Events at OutReach LGBT Community Center

Fall Music Social with Ann Christoffer

OutReach's LGBT Senior Alliance, the ROLLers (Retired Older Lesbians) and Lizzards (Lesbians Over 30) presents our Fall Music Social Dinner with a special performance by recording artist Ann Christoffer at the Goodman Community Center (149 Waubesa Street - east side) on Thursday, October 2nd, from 5:00 - 8:00 pm.

Ann is known for her intimate, intense solo acoustic performances. Her powerful voice is a definite "head-turner" and her softer side will leave you with warm fuzzies. Ann lived in Madison for many years and we welcome her back for this special concert.

The Dinner will include homemade Lasagna (veg. option), garlic bread sticks, garden salad, fruit, beverages and assorted desserts. Suggested donation is $20 for dinner and the concert, $10 for limited income people.

For more information, please call OutReach at 255-8582 and ask for Steve or Angie. Also e-mail at


“GAY IN THE GREAT WAR”: Lance Ringel reads from his WWI Novel "FLOWER OF IOWA" with Live Period Music

MADISON, WI — “Gay in the Great War,” a program combining literature and music from World War I, will be presented at OutReach, on Thursday, October 16 from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War. October is also LGBT History Month.

Lance Ringel, author of the acclaimed World War I saga Flower of Iowa, will read excerpts from his eBook, joined by his spouse, actor-singer Chuck Muckle. Mr. Muckle will also perform several songs made famous during The Great War.

The sprawling historical novel Flower of Iowa takes place against the turbulent backdrop of World War I. In France during the final months of the war in 1918, young American Tommy Flowers is learning to be a good soldier in the trenches. At the same time, Tommy steadily develops an attraction for his best buddy, British soldier David Pearson. The two young men must navigate this unexpected but irresistible attraction, seeking out ways to stay in touch even as the war reaches a crescendo, drawing them apart. A tale of love and bravery in the midst of tragedy, Flower of Iowa showcases unforgettable characters, meticulous historic research and exhilarating storytelling.
