Soul Essence also features a White Party on Saturday, August 12th at the Ramada Inn (41 N. 10th Street) in Minneapolis beginning at 9:00 pm; a Family Gathering-Picnic on Sunday, August 13th at Theodore Wirth Park beginning at noon; and on Monday, August 14th, a Skate Jam at The Roller Garden (5622 W.

“Minnesota Soul Essence was founded in 2002 as the result of the need for a stronger presence of GLBT African Americans in the Twin Cities. Soul Essence exists to provide a model of unity and pride for African-American GLBT residents of the Twin Cities. We achieve this by establishing relationships and networking within the African-American community, the Gay, Lesbien, Bi-Sexual Transgender community, and our allies.”
