Hey Queen! presents THE LAST DANCE

Hey Queen! presents the Last Dance

CLICK HERE TO RSVP ON FACEBOOK >>

When: Saturday, October 18th at 10pm until 4am

Where: littlefield, 622 degraw st., brooklyn, ny

** Please note the early start time! **

Parting is such sweet sorrow…but over the last 5 1/2 years, we’ve shared magic, being fabulous and creating culture with some of the most awe-inspiriting and magical queers from Brooklyn and beyond.

From our early days at Sugarland and Public Assembly to our home base at Littlefield, we’ve seen some amazing emerging and established performers and artists cultivate the kind of space we could only dream of.

For everyone who volunteered for one of our fundraisers, celebrated their birthday with us, brought their friends from out of town, lost their queer party virginity with us, met their honey or a hookup on the dim dance floor or stayed until the lights came up — we want to welcome you back for one last night to remember the debauchery, the good and the bad and the community spirit for which we are infinitely grateful we co-created with you.

Dress in yr absolute best, whatever that means to you and come bid us adieu under the crisp fall moon. This is your last chance to join us for one last dance!

Hey Queen is coming to a close this year.

Hey Queens,

Thank you for your support through the last five years. Together, we’ve been through three venues, four Prides, over sixty parties, struggle, resilience and magic.

We have learned so much from you and are so grateful to have committed to imagining what a safer/radical party space looked like for queer, trans and gender non-conforming folks of all races, ethnicities and abilities here in Brooklyn. It is a bittersweet moment for us to announce that October 18, 2014 will be our last party.

Together we have decided to fold this project to work on other projects, careers and life goals. We are honored to have served you and the city we love and look forward to seeing what you create next!

xoxo,
Sarah Jenny, Avory Agony and the rest of the Hey Queen! team

P.S. Our remaining two parties are Saturday, August 16 and Saturday, October 18 — we hope to see you there and raise a glass with you.

HEY QUEEN! presents Sparklez on the half shell: a Cancerian Evolution

Photo by Tinker Coalescing

WHEN: Saturday, July 19th from 11pm – 4am

WHERE: littlefield, 622 degraw st., brooklyn, ny

COVER: $5 before midnight, $7 after

Plato once said that the contemplation of physical beauty allowed the mind to better understand spiritual beauty. So, looking at Venus, the most beautiful of goddesses, might at first raise a physical response in viewers which then lifted their minds towards the Creator. Venus, an earthly goddess who aroused humans to physical love, she was also a heavenly goddess who inspired intellectual love in them. A power so profound it was said that when 15th century viewers looked at Botticelli’s painting the Birth of Venus they would feel their minds lifted to the realm of divine love.

In this installment of Hey Queen we’re doing the Cancerian Evolution and celebrating all our summer babies. Join us in moving to a state of divine love, idealism, creativity and care. So come out of your shells, you’re in high demand! We’re sure this party will make you feel right at home!!

Hey Queen! presents QUEEN OF YOUR DREAMS

Flyer by Cristy C. Road

Flyer by Cristy C. Road

Dreams are successions of images, ideas, emotions, and sensations that occur involuntarily in the mind during certain stages of sleep. Their content remains a mystery though has been a topic of speculation, artist’s musing and a subject of philosophical and cultural interest throughout recorded history.

Why we dream is still one of the great unanswered questions. Scientists, spiritualists, painters and outlaws have offered many theories to why we dream—memory consolidation, emotional regulation, a connection to the unconscious mind, threat simulation, inter-dimensional shifting and to have a place where we can move and travel limitlessly surpassing the confines of body, space and time.

Nevertheless, people continue mining their twilight reveries for clues to their inner lives, creative insight, and even premonitions to the future. On this night, the eve of 4/20 we want to awaken the spirit of mystery and dive into a world of fantasy and consciousness. While the world sleeps we celebrate!

Hey Queen! write up in Next Magazine

“Hey Queen! brings out the maneaters with a special guest performance by Bryn Kelly”

Friday night we ventured off the beaten path to Littlefield, a fun party venue in the new neighborhood-of-the-moment, Gowanus, for the always fun and ultra queer dance party, Hey Queen!

The place was packed with beautiful queer folks dancing their butts off to fun sets by DJ D’hana Perry and DJ shomi noise. As cocktails flowed, groups of friends meshed creating a beautiful mob on the dance floor of lesbians, gay boys, trans girls, trans boys, bois, butches, fems and more!

Tinker Coalescing of TheThinkTheater: Queer Photography captured the magic with her trippy photo finish tricks that party revelers have come to love. Production coordinator, Connor Donahue, kept the party running smoothly, looking dashing as he did it in his signature dandy attire and eye make-up. We asked him how he would describe the spirit of this popular long running party and remarked on the party’s “welcoming ethos.” Telling us that “every night I come to this party I meet somebody new and marvelous. There’s an open vibe brimming with radical politics and tender conviviality.”
