Music: The splendid DJ line-up to give you life on the dance floor will feature: (See Bios)
- DJ Denise (aka DJ D) – house music wonder and Mizumo Music lead producer, known for her fader flicks and mixer tricks combined with seemingly effortless beat-matching skills
- DJ Val G. – producer of VIDA and resident DJ of Vice Tuesdays SF who delights crowds with strictly organic hip-hop and dance beats
- Hil Huerta – house music veteran who blends everything from funky cuts to electro-fueled tech house to progressive grooves
- Aili Chu – masterful mixer of deep house, sexy house, tech house, and progressive trance who has held residencies at BOSS750, Club 1015, Sno-Drift and Space 550.
Performances: This year’s stage performances co-hosted by the fabulous Mama Dora (Dora M Ama) and SirJoQ will delight you with acts by:
- Jocquese Whitfield (SirJoQ), legendary SF vogue dancer/choreographer/MC/instructor – highlighted on MTV’s hit show ‘The Real World’ – his career is steeped in freestyle hip-hop improvisation as well as modern, classical and Diasporic dance traditions.
- Special guest from Chicago, drag and burlesque star Otter Chaös – the beyond binary, bearded ballerina that lives somewhere between king and queen, horror and cosplay, classical elegance and raw sexuality.
- A triage of cosmic talent from the beloved Liam Ocean, Vertel Jackson and Llano River Blue, giving you all sorts of neon wheel grandness and circus love.
Grand Finale: The evening’s finale will be a spectacular GayGlo Guerrilla Theater blacklight performance called “Journey to Earth” from the windows above the party, led by original organizers Chickpea (Brian Busta), Jason Smart, Alex Robinson and DJ TomCat, plus supporting staff – you don’t want to miss it.
