June is Pride month. In honor of Pride month, Shenel Rimando, the content creator of the Save Sell Shenel platform is co-hosting the “She Likes Her: Women’s Mixer & Speed Dating Event” at Picks Bar on Sunday, June 11, 2023. “My co-host and I met at a speed dating event that was promoted as LGBTQ+ friendly but we quickly learned the event hosts did not have a section for other LGBTQ+ people. When we asked the organizers, “How do we meet other women? They said, “Just stay with each other since we don’t have a section for you.” She and I became friends but were disappointed that we spent $35 and did not get the full speed dating experience. Once again, we were pushed to the side and were expected to be okay with the situation. Instead of being upset about the situation, my co-host and I quickly looked for other lesbian speed dating events but realized that none existed in San Antonio. This is where the idea of “She Likes Her” was formed. We wanted to create a safe space where like minded women can come together to 1) support a LGBTQ+ business 2) mingle with other women 3) experience a women’s only speed dating event 4) give back to local LGBTQ+ non-profits 5) raise awareness about small businesses who are willing to sponsor the event 6) listen to female artists. This is a women supporting women event that our LGBTQ+ community has been wanting.” said Shenel Rimando. All ticket sales and donations made through Eventbrite will be donated to a local LGBTQ+ non-profits Fiesta Youth and The Center – Pride Center San Antonio.
