Welcome to the home page for the 2016 A Night at the Tivoli, Spencer Pride’s premier LGBT History Month Event! We hope that you will find the information on this page informative. Please be sure to come out and join us for this year’s event, which takes place on Wednesday, October 12 at 7 PM at the historic Tivoli Theatre in downtown Spencer. This year’s event is sponsored, in part, by the Greencastle Walmart.
Spencer Pride, Inc. has been holding a GLBT History Month event for 8 years. It started with a documentary film held at Cornerstone Hall of the Spencer Presbyterian Church. We had an educational display in the Spencer library. That first film was attended by 75 people some of whom turned out to be protesters. The protestors watched the film and then tried to convert us. We’ve come a long way.
This is our 4th annual “A Night at the Tivoli” event. We have held our annual GLBT History Month film screening at the beautiful downtown Tivoli Theater since it reopened. We offer an admission free film screening which is attended by over 150 people! We also include an educational element in the evening as well as a silent auction or raffle fundraiser.
In addition to “A Night at the Tivoli,” we create educational displays each year for distribution at areas libraries and schools about LGBTQI issues & history. This year’s displays are being developed by Prism Youth Community – Bloomington. Availability of our educational displays has expanded tremendously. This year our displays will be set up in over 20 area libraries and schools from Linton to Brown County to Greencastle to Martinsville.
Study up on your LGBT political history! To give yourself an edge visit one of our educational displays at your local library or come early on October 12th and check out the one on display at the Tivoli. Volunteers of Spencer Pride will be hosting a Political Jeopardy game for the entire audience with fun prizes.
Our raffle items this year are being donated by elected officials and individuals running for office. It’s an election year, so why not let them give back a little, right? 😉
