The Salus Center is an LGBTQ community center based in Lansing that focuses on centering queer voices and providing a safe space for them as well. On Sunday, Dec. 1, the center will be holding its own Friendsgiving celebration in honor of “community, friendship and gratitude.” Attendees are encouraged to bring a dish to share.
“Please bring a complete ingredient list for dishes you bring to pass, including spices used. This will help folks with dietary restrictions make informed choices! Current known dietary restrictions to be aware of: peppercorn allergy, vegan, gluten allergy, peanuts,” organizers wrote. “This space is wheelchair accessible, has an all-gender restroom on site, and children are welcome.”
