Hello lovelies,

June is one of our favorite times of the year...it's not searingly hot yet, and it's both Pride and Mermaid Parade time! As always, we're getting in on the action in a big way. Here's the plan:

- Sat 6.10 (day) - Brooklyn Pride - G&S/HoS will have their own setup at Brooklyn Pride on 5th Ave in Park Slope! We're thinking clothes shopping, glitter station and photo booth, runway style! We would love to see you there, and please let us know if you may want to volunteer to hang with us a bit and talk about what we do, your experience here and our space with new folks who may not know us yet. We'll have drinks & snacks for everyone who does this. It's also a great time to chat to us about events you may want to see us host, or your own events you may want to see happen here.

- Sat 6.10 (night) - Daddy's Night - Vengeance Variety returns for a collab with Gemini & Scorpio, with another night of unpredictable stage antics and party vibes, this time with a gender-f'd leather twist. Perfect way to end Brooklyn Pride...

- Sat 6.17 - Sea Creature Stomp - after the longest pandemic pause, the G&S post-parade bash is back! Brass bands, DJs, pulsating dance floor, cozy couches...classic summertime Brooklyn loft bash.

- Sat 6.24 - Renegade Pride - the big colorful dance bash is back! You know how we rock this one, and it'll be amazing. We're confirming the all-queer DJ lineup as we speak.

Yes, Daddy! Get ready for some Discipline from all your favorite Daddies of burlesque. Lydia Vengeance presents a night of mischief, kink, and dad jokes with a delicious cast of Daddies keeping you entertained from the stage, as DJs spin beats on the dance floor. Mothers have their flowers, and Fathers have their BBQs...but Daddies have latex, leather, whips, and more. Spank you there!

After the longest pandemic pause, the G&S post-parade bash is back! With brass bands, dance beats, pulsating dance floor, lots of cozy seating, photo booth wall for all those mer-selfies. Classic summertime Brooklyn loft party...if it happened under the sea. Brass bands TBA soon!

- HONK Family Band - NYC's newest block party band, covering everything from Talking Heads and Nirvana to Pharoah Sanders and Rebirth Brass Band
- Mambembe - Afro Brazilian samba-reggae percussion ensemble

After the bands, DJs keep us dancing with tropical bass until our mermaid tails fall off.

Dress code: all sea creature everything.

Closest subway from parade: express B/D/N/Q to Atlantic-Pacific (or switch to R for local Union stop). Lots of great restaurants in the area to grab a meal before the party.

Our annual dance party blowout, now in our new party space: lights & smoke & lasers, booming bass, spinning disco ball, lots of dance floor, lots of couches, killer AC. Underground faves DJs Illexandra & more keep your booty bouncing on the dance floor while go go, flow & pole acts keep up the vibes. Your best self captured by: photo genius Distilled Studio in our custom photo booth.

Get in touch to participate: looking for queer DJs and big, splashy, colorful ambient acts (drag, go go, aerial, flags, stilts, pole...); 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 us, 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.

COVID safety: Proof of vaccination is required. Masks are welcome but not required, and are recommended for the dance floor if not keeping 6' apart. We're collecting contact info on all guests for contact tracing purposes in case of an infection.

*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 ($45) we add a low income ticket ($15).
