It’s been far far FAR too long, Austin! So we are celebrating out two year anniversary by dusting off our bestest, queerest most tropical rhythms to give you a summer dance party you won’t soon forget.

We will have a photographer and cinematographer present at the event. We understand that folks have different needs around visibility online and may not want or feel comfortable being photographed or filmed. It’s really important to us that our guests feel comfortable and are able to enjoy the party without feeling like their safety is at risk – and we’re sorry we hadn’t already addressed this.Because of this, we will have stickers available at the door to wear to indicate to our photographer and cinematographer that you do not want to be photographed or filmed. We hope that this system will allow folks to participate in this event more fully and without worry.
