Hey Queen! is a monthly multi-gender, queer dance party featuring both emerging and established performers every month along with a new theme. Over the course if it’s 5+ year run, Hey Queen! has showcased a range of LGBTQ performers, installation artists, video artists, DJs, dancers and change makers. We aim to produce two fundraisers a year to benefit local queer community groups and social justice projects.
We also emphasize the importance of keeping the party diverse and financially and physically accessible to everyone. All our venues are wheelchair accessible and ADA compliant unless otherwise noted.
Hey Queen! thrives on collaboration both within our own events and with other curators.
We were honored to be included in Time Out New York’s 50 reasons why NYC is the greatest city in the world.
