Asking for a (Queer) Friend: A “Friendship Networking” Event

September 6, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$5 – $10
When you’re a kid, all it takes is finding someone who likes playing in the sandbox like you do – BAM, they’re your new best friend.
But it’s harder to make friends as an adult, especially post-pandemic when people have moved and friend circles have shifted. How are you supposed to meet new people???
That’s the burning question that led comedians Emily Slazer and Julia Delois to conceive of Asking for a Friend, New Orleans’ only “friendship networking” event.
We’ve been doing Asking for a Friend events since July 2022 and they’ve grown beyond anything we could have predicted. We’re excited to offer this queer-focused edition as part of Keep NOLA Queer week; ALL are welcome, however, please understand that this particular installment of the event centers queer folks. Follow along for announcements about the regularly scheduled September-December AFAF events!
We’re excited to be at Okay Bar (1700 Port Street) this time for some late summer friendship-forging!
We challenge you to invite a new friend or acquaintance – someone you don’t know very well – to come hang out and meet some awesome new folks. You can even point to this event so you don’t feel so awkward!
And don’t worry – it’s all totally casual and low stakes. No weird introduction circles, no “fun facts”…we’d never do that to y’all.
You’ll get a name tag with a funky little conversation-starting prompt, and then it’s just mingling and bar hangin’ from there.
See you there, future friends!
Wednesday, September 6th | 6-9 pm
Okay Bar | 1700 Port Street | 21+
$5-10 suggested donation at the door – no one turned away for lack of funds!
