This update has news both good and bad, so come along on this brief journey...
- Good news first: we are gearing up to return to production, and first up is a repeat of last year's awesome Renegade Pride, back at our beloved Rubulad on Sat June 25. You know tickets will go quickly, especially those cheaper levels. Tix are up (see below), but we're still working on the website. Lineup TBA soon, and we're seeking both paid and volunteer creative participants: anything big, bold, colorful and fun. Queer POCs to the front!
- Ok, so the bad news. We spent the first quarter of this year investing time and money in a very exciting location on St Marks Place in the East Village, going so far as to get the impossible Community Board approval for a liquor license. Last month, on what should have been the day of our lease signing, the landlord...ghosted. Yup, like a teenager in a breakup. After two weeks of unreturned communication to our team (lawyer, broker, etc), we finally got word through the back channels that they signed someone else behind our backs. This has been a huge blow both financially and morally, but we're back on the lookout for spaces and hope to have better news soon. We got leads already, but more are always welcome. 2-5k sq ft anywhere in MH or BK with multiple train options.
- In the meantime, we're still raising funds by selling fabulous fashion online - designer, vintage & costume. Signature has browsing links, but best deals are always direct, and YES, we still have access to the Loft if you want to shop in person.
Gemini & Scorpio,
makers of themed costume events with live entertainment

A wild indoor/outdoor Pride takeover of one of our favorite underground party spaces.
Get in touch to participate: looking for queer DJs and big, splashy, colorful ambient acts (drag, go go, aerial, fire, flags, stilts...); queer POCs to the front. Paid & comp spots available.
Dress code: your queerest self! Sparkly unicorns, leather daddies, LED aliens, fancy fairies, glitter glamour queens, sequin divas, kinky party monsters, neon rainbow bears...with sensible dancing shoes! This Pride is inclusive of all genders & expressions. As always with G&S, effort required / no entry otherwise...but we'll help you at door if you're under-dressed. Are you bringing LEWKS? Impress the door mistress and get in FREE.
