Hi there lovely Bloom Community!

Happy August :) Hope folks had fun at Dore Alley and the other amazing events of late! For those of you looking ahead to Folsom, we are starting to build out a calendar of events for our friends at Folsom Street Fair. Would love to see your additions & ideas! 

We wanted to start this week's newsletter with a little PSA about monkeypox. As the San Francisco AIDS Foundation stated, Monkeypox is circulating in our community, and we want to make sure you have the info you need about what’s going on. See the SFAIDS Info & Updates here, the CDC guidance here, and a handy dandy guide by our friends at Poly Happy Hour right over here

We also some exciting news for you all: We started working with organizer partners in Portland & Seattle, and we're on the lookout for more! If you or anyone you know is based in the area and has ideas, please email events@joinbloom.community.
