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.

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 for you to shake your booty. Featuring DJ Illexxandra & DJ JCLEF, 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.

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. Featured DJs for the kick-off party: DJ Duo SAL-T-LEX (T-LEX and SALT QUEEN).

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.

For questions and further info, contact Foxie Lou (Mxfoxielou) or Gavin (Gav.a.good.time) on IG.  


Poetry Undressed: The Unveiling

Sun July 23, doors at 6:30, show at 7:30
Tickets are $25 online, $30 at the door
Gemini & Scorpio Loft, 267 Douglass St, 3rd fl (ADA accessible)


Doc Brown and Connie Lingus present the third installment of Poetry Undressed: The Unveiling...a night to reveal our authentic selves.

Poetry Undressed (@poetry_undressed) is an experimental poetry burlesque experience. One by one, burlesque dancers bring poetry readings to life with movement over a backdrop of improvised upright bass. Attendees sit together on rugs and toss flower petals at the performers, making for a truly intimate night of radical expression.

At this show, The Unveiling, we investigate the masks we wear, the barriers we create between our truest selves and everyone else. On this night, we gently, or recklessly, pull them away to reveal ourselves in all our authentic glory - and all our infinite contradiction.

Featuring performances by Maggie McMuffin, Jack Rabbit Slims, Peter Mercury, Dutch Baby, Phoenix Fucktoy, Parton Shots, & Lil’y Con Carnage. Guest poetry reading by Jane LeCroy and improvised upright bass by the spectacular Aine.

Drinks and other goodies sold at the event.
