HANKY PARTY: Cruising Season official launch party / Queers Crash the Beat PSA Launch
IT’S CRUISING SEASON!
Queers Crash the Beat is celebrating by shouting a big FUCK YOU to cops! And also we’re throwing a banger of a hanky party to raise money for some of our favorite groups in Toronto that stay on the offense against the racist, queerphobic, fucked up criminal justice system: Black Lives Matter TO, Maggies and HALCO.
Since this is an all-gender, consent-centric cruisy, wadical lefty, sex-positive, anti-cop, anti-state, anti-oppressive pro- parksex PARTY we will be selling original and extremely arousing Queers Crash the Beat handkerchiefs to raise money for our friends and allies! Just wait until you see them!!! That way, you can flag to the cutie across the dancefloor exactly what you’re into tonight.
***THIS IS NOT AN EVENT FOR ALLIES (---$end u$ your money, let u$ have our crui$ing---) WE WANT TO PACK THE SPACE WITH QUEER + TRANS FOLKS LOOKING TO PARTY/CRUISE/CELEBRATE!!! ALLIES WE THANK YOU AND WILL SEE YOU AT NEXT FUNCTION***
We’re also excited to be debuting our very special Public Service Announcement video about what your rights are while cruising, and how to act on them. We’ll be debuting the video for the first time right at 10pm, and screening it throughout the night.
Stick around for special performances by…
… the activist burlesque powerhouse Dainty Smith!
… and the voguing, runway pumping likes of Toronto’s own ballroom sensation The House of Constantine.
Music all night from…
The shimmering, inimitable DJ Coco Supreme
and the legendary, one-of-a-kind DJ Blackcat
