WEEKEND ROUNDUP: LGBT Health Fair, HEROES 2014, Philly’s First Queer
Latin Party, and More
Get physical at this year’s LGBT Health Fair PrideFit. The free health summit promises to keep you in shape with TEDx-esque presentations, food and drink samples, vendors specializing (and sampling) everything from massage to acupuncture, and more. The long list of sponsors includes local LGBT-supportive organizations William Way, Optimal Sports 1315, the Mazzoni Center, MANNA, and Team Philadelphia.
Discussion topics include: “Think Small: How Small Changes Make a Big Impact on Your Health and Fitness,” “Metabolic Syndrome and the LGBT Community,” and a session led by inspirational speaker and author Jo-Ellen Marks. It’s never too late to follow through with that New Year’s Resolution about eating and maintaining a healthier lifestyle. Don’t forget, like J-Lo’s love, this event doesn’t cost a thing. Saturday, March 29th, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., free, William Way Community Center, 1315 Spruce Street.
