We are still deep in it, trying to salvage the Loft as best we can, while also looking for the next Thing. In the meantime, we are having an actual in-person event next Sat, and we're so happy we could cry. Buying tickets to it and helping us spread the word would be the absolute best thing you can do to help us out right now.
The event is FINALLY kicking off our secret-ish late-night outdoor party spot Brooklyn Wonderland over at at Industry City. It is by our sex-positive LGBTQIA+ sister brand House of Scorpio, and while a membership is required, those start at just $5/mo with no required commitment minimum. If you loved Renegade Pride, this will have a very similar vibe...but with more treats: frozen drinks, outdoor dance floor, fire pit, etc. Rainbows are not just for June...turn it up and join us! We can't wait to see you all again in person. See below for full invite.
The party will be as COVID-safe as possible: vaccine required, outdoors and socially distant (and you can wear masks if closer than 6'). The membership system allows us to put your vaccine status on file, and helps us with contact tracing in case of a breakthrough infection.
- We don't have an official Raid The Racks plan for the next few Sundays, but you can always make an appointment for virtually any day. All the madness around losing the Loft is leaving no time for new online listings, so we are trying to do as much as we can in person. Hit us up and come get some fabulous wearables!

Calling all poly, swinger, kink, LGBTQIA+ and other "alternative" dating/sex/gender-aligned humans and their allies for HoS' Renegade Pride redo: a social & dance takeover of [some of] the huge, lush courtyard at Industry City, finally kicking off G&S' "Brooklyn Wonderland" late-night summer party pop-up in the location. Your fabulous DJs Shakey & Illexxandra bring the beats to the outdoor dance floor. Plus: Frozen drinks. Fire pit. Cozy seating. Open skies. Let's close out the hot vax summer in style!
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 (think asphalt & gravel). This party is inclusive of all genders & expressions. As always with HoS, effort required / no entry otherwise...but we'll help you at door if you're under-dressed.
What is Brooklyn Wonderland? Gemini & Scorpio's summer 2021 late-night takeover of the lush courtyard at Industry City, in partnership with Barrow's Intense. Party schedule TK to G&S mail list.

- Proof of vaccination is required to attend and will be added to your member profile for future events. We strongly recommend the official NY State Excelsior app, but you can also show your original vaccination card and photo ID (no copies of either).
- Attendance is by advance ticket purchase only; no door sales. Tip: download the Wild Apricot app for easy mobile ticket purchase, especially if buying last minute. Tickets are available online throughout the event unless we reach capacity.
- In an unlikely case of infection, our membership system will be used for contact tracing. Contact information is collected from all guests for this purpose.
- Masks are welcome but not required, and are recommended for the dance floor if not keeping 6' apart (but there's plenty of room to dance at a safe distance).
- All G&S staff have been vaccinated, but may still mask up as they see fit.
