About This Event
(Program designed for ages 17+)
Inspired by the Speakeasy clubs of the Harlem Renaissance, which were welcoming and inclusive places for the African American LGBTQ+ Community, this program invites you to a space that welcomes LGBTQIA+ African Americans (and allies) of all gender identities and orientations to experience camaraderie, comedy, dance, music, and art making.
Highlights of the evening include music by DJ MIM -an award-winning multi-genre DJ who spins an eclectic mix. Commentary and comedy by award-winning comedian, trailblazer, actor, writer and film producer, Sampson McCormick. A moderated panel discussion about Ballroom and Beyond with icons Tracey “Africa” Norman, Rayceen Pendarvis, and Kevin Aviance.
There will also be art tables, Icon Bingo, as well as light snacks and liquid refreshment.
