The Field Museum's LGBTQ affinity group Outfielders will host its second annual "Out in the Field: Slushies and Science," which will take place Tuesday, June 20, 6-8 p.m., at Sidetrack, 3349 N. Halsted St.
Last year, in the wake of the Pulse nightclub shooting, "Slushies and Science" donated proceeds to Equality Florida to benefit the families of the victims. This year, the museum is partnering with Project Fierce, whose goal is to help queer and trans youths experiencing homelessness. They just launched a fundraising campaign to raise $100,000 by Friday, Sept. 1, to open operations this fall/winter.
There will be show-and-tells about some of nature's most unusual sexual behavior, including fishes that switch from male to female, mushroom sex and more.
Admission is $20, which includes snacks and two drinks; visit www.fieldmuseum.org/at-the-field/calendar/out-field-slushies-and-science-0.
