Firstly, Pride photo booth pics are here! To begin with, a full unedited set, so you can download your faves: https://bit.ly/3XEWayI -- then we'll pick a handful to post to our website/socials in the next week or so. If you *don't* want your photos to be used, please let us know which group you are, and we won't choose any from your set. Otherwise, expect these to be posted next week so you can tag yourselves.
If you're loving the photos: they are by Distilled Studio (@distilled.studio on IG), and you could thank/tip the photographer via their Venmo: @Christopher-Scalzi

Inspired by the dance halls of the early twentieth century and slow dancing from junior high school, The Dance Hall is an evening filled with tantalizing restraint.
Participants are given dance cards to arrange partnered prances for the night, and a slow dance lesson begins the evening. Wallflowers beware: you will be matched up by our roving matrons (note: gender is irrelevant for partner dancing). The esteemed DJ James Mulry delivers three sets of songs exclusively via vinyl record: all slow dances, all night. Hosted by the illustrious Kate Brehm.
Dress as your most magnificent self.
Arrive on time to start filling your dance card. Dance lesson and evening instructions at 7:30pm. Dance card music sets begin at 7:45pm & end at 10:30pm; intermission between sets; free dance after.
*All tickets offer the same access to the event. Please buy at the highest price you can, to support artists, production and affordable tickets for everyone. For every patron ticket ($40) we add a low income ticket ($15).

Calling all poly, swinger, kink, LGBTQIA+ and other "alternative" dating/sex/gender-aligned humans and their allies for a social & dance blowout in our new nightlife lair. We got lights & smoke & lasers, booming bass, spinning disco ball, swirling visuals, lots of dance floor, killer AC. Lots of quieter space for socializing, with couches in the lounge and bar.
Queer DJs lay down beats, while flow & go go performers keep up the vibes (bring that folding money!). Headlining: DJ Illexxandra, with an eclectic mix of happy hits & house beats.
Trying something new! We've been getting inquiries about new people checking out HoS events just after the monthly mixer has passed. We're going to test Fierce! as a possible second monthly mixer where friends and future members are both invited. So this one is open to current members, prospective members and non-members alike.
Dress code: your queerest self! Sparkly unicorns, leather daddies, LED aliens, fancy fairies, punk dykes, glitter glamour queens, sequin divas, kinky party monsters, dandy butches, neon rainbow bears. This party is inclusive of all genders & expressions -- except casual wear. Dress to dance!
HoS rules: Dress code required; HoS membership, PAL or prior approval not required; Code of Conduct always applies; no photos except in the designated front area.
COVID safety: HoS requires proof of vaccination on file; masks encouraged; two hospital grade UV air purifiers will cycle the air.
GUEST PRODUCER PARTY: 7.20
Dance at Dusk Fusion Dance
Thur July 20, 7pm-12am, $18-$25 sliding scale
Gemini & Scorpio Loft, 267 Douglass St, 3rd fl (ADA accessible)
Introducing “Dance at Dusk” - Brooklyn's first monthly Fusion Dance gathering (next event Thur Aug 17).
Fusion Dance is a magnificent blend of styles coming together to create a fluid improvisational partner dance. Whether you're a seasoned dancer or a newbie looking to learn how to move your feet, this style is inclusive for all because of its diverse nature. Perfect for a date night, a night out with friends or laid back weekday fun that will get you home by midnight.
We kick off each event with an introductory dance lesson focusing on some basics of the dance style, followed by a consent talk. Afterwards, let loose on the open dance floor as our talented rotating cast of DJs send us through the night.
This event is specifically inclusive of all gender, queer and POC backgrounds, so whoever you are, dress to express yourself and dance the night away. Solo folks welcome, as traditionally dance partners will rotate through the night.
DJ List coming soon. For questions and further info, contact Foxie Lou or Gavin on IG (Mxfoxielou) or (Gav.a.good.time)
