PEORIA — Guerrilla Queer Bar (GQB) Takeover’s first event of the year will be on Jan. 17.
The organizers have said that the bar to be taken over will be announced the day of the event. You can RSVP on the Facebook event page.
GQB is an ongoing series of pop-ups of, by, and for the LGBTQ community at “straight bars.” These gatherings occur once a month. The locations of GQB “takeovers” are announced on the day of the event at approximately noon. Participants of GQB takeovers must be 21 years of age or older. People who are under 21 years of age are welcome to attend other special and family-friendly events that may appear such as a brunch, a movie night, a bonfire, or some other community gathering. Those GQB events happen less often, however.
The takeover will start at 9 p.m. They are on Facebook and Instagram at @gqbofpeoriail.
