While fundraisers and drag queens are commonplace in the Castro, it's rare that 100 percent of the proceeds from a three-hour Friday event goes to a great cause. But, that's exactly what The Disco Coalition, a new series of happy hour nights leading up to San Francisco Pride, is all about: shining a spotlight on the queer community and raising funds for nonprofits.

The debut Disco Coalition event on March 29 at the Lookout honored queer hero Juanita MORE, a matriarch of the House of More, who's known for her tireless fundraising, fabulous events and food and world-class SF Pride parties.

The event benefited the venerable GLBT History Society which operates its museum in the Castro, with archives downtown. In addition to the proceeds from the jam-packed patrons 'drinking for good,' Titos Vodka will match monies raised, up to $1,000, for each of the events through June.

Disco Coalition co-founders Chris Hastings and Aaron Wessels want to raise money and bring attention to issues and causes that impact queerkind and humankind.
