The night opens with DJ SUPER SQUIRRELL (7 pm- 10 pm) a mashup maestro serving up queer pop stew from Boston to Tel Aviv: old and new school radio treats, hip hop, global dance, indie electronica, dancehall, moombahton, gospel and doo-wop, found sounds, live electronics, spoken word, tasty atmospherics, and shit you never heard before. Whether she's rocking you on the dancefloor, teaching turntablism in the classrooms of Harvard, or spinning for Lady Gaga's charity kickoff, DJ Super Squirrel delivers every time. She will be accompanied by belly dance performers- see below.
The legendary DJ DENA hits the decks 10 pm- 2 am and will seamlessly spin all your favorite dance hits. Dena is considered one of the very best DJs in the country, consistently creating an intense energy. Guaranteed she will create a night of memories as you share the dance floor with 1,000 other women.
The lounge features DJ TRIANA (10 pm- 2 am) who comes to us from her native Chile and by way of South beach. She brings with her an international flair of beats: eclectic sets mixing Reggaton, Samba, Candombe and Bachata with your favorite top 90's Hip Hop hits, the best throw backs and even some European Hip Hop.
You will be mesmerized by our gravity defying pole dancers, titillated by our gogo dancers and in awe of the many performances throughout the night. These include:
Belly Dance (9 pm- 10 pm) Leilah and Inaya Nour have been dancing together since 2009, when they met as members of a local Cabaret belly dance troupe. They quickly discovered a mutual affinity for the smokier side of belly dance, and fell in love with Tribal Fusion. They are both full-time members of Urban Nomad, directed by internationally acclaimed Tribal Fusion artist Bevin Victoria, and co-founded by Leilah in 2013. These two ladies are thrilled to have been able to grow together as artists, friends, and nerds-to-the-core. They are especially excited to be performing at this year's Pride festivities, and will be joining you merrymakers in the crowd after their show!
Canada's best Drag King (11 pm and 12 am): Nat King Pole Montreal's number one drag king has been performing for 9 years throughout Montreal as well as Toronto, Ottawa, Philadelphia, Rhode Island and more. He's performed at the famous "Just for Laughs festival in his home town where they call him the Pantie Whisperer!
Allix Mortis (11 pm and 12 am) is an award winning, soul stealing, androgyne dedicated to making messes and breaking hearts.
