Event Details

W San Francsico Presents: CAMP QUEER 

Camp Queer is a celebration of what we share, and what we stand for —love, individuality, music, connection, and community. Since its creation, W has been a space for self-expression and meaningful conversations. W is a destination that embraces all who visit, encouraging travelers and locals to be their true selves. You are invited to Take a Stance with us by showing up and celebrating what you believe in! 

Thursday, June 22nd, we kick off SF PRIDE Weekend at W San Francisco with CAMP QUEER WELCOME MIXER, starring SirJoQ of Vogue & Tone. 

This night will be filled with new connections, great music and a specialty menu available to raise funds for LYRIC, a center for LGBTQ+ Youth in San Francisco. You won’t want to miss this! 

Jocquese “SirJoQ” Whitfield is a dancer/performer/choreographer/MC born and raised in San Francisco. They are the first Vogue instructor of San Francisco and have been teaching their Vogue & Tone classes since 2010. Starting their career steeped in the improvisation of freestyle hip-hop, Jocquese has added modern, classical, and Diasporic dance traditions over the last several years. They were voted “Best Dance Instructor” of 2014 by the San Francisco Bay Guardian. Vogue & Tone was also featured in the San Francisco Chronicle & MTV’s hit show, The Real World. They held the title of Mr. Gay San Francisco from 2021-2022 under The Imperial Council of San Francisco. 

A shape-shifter, Jocquese challenges assumptions of sexual identity in dance as they play with both “masculine” and “feminine” aspects. Jocquese’s current movement vocabulary revisits the bold, rebellious statements of the 1980’s as expressed through fashion, nightlife, and a love of the abstract. 

Jocquese is currently signed to Molly House Records and has opened for as well as performed alongside artists such as: Mykki Blanco, Zebra Katz, M.I.A., TT the Artist, Charli XCX, Jenna Redd Foxx, Big Freedia, MikeQ, Perfume Genius, and Micah Tron. Jocquese has collaborated with: Swagger Like Us, Double Duchess, Honey Mahogany, Scissor Sisters, Leiomy Maldonado (Amazon Mother, Legendary), Benny Ninja, Javier Ninja, Stern Grove Festival, The Asian Art Museum, The Museum of African Diaspora, Benefit Cosmetics, San Francisco Symphony, The Contemporary Jewish Museum, The Berkeley Art Museum, Levi Strauss & Co., The New York Times, San Francisco Giants, Visa Inc., Wish, and Alaska Airlines. 

Jocquese currently teaches their Vogue & Tone classes at Dance Mission Theater (Mondays, 7-8:30PM, SF) and ODC Theater (Thursdays, 7:00pm-8:00pm, SF). 

FEMME HOUSE creates opportunities for women, gender-expansive, BIPOC, and LGBTQIA+  creatives in the technical and behind the scenes areas of music. We are creating the future producers, mixers, engineers, DJs, artists, and executives of the industry by providing education and scholarships, cultivating community, furthering visual representation, and offering professional development opportunities.
