Rustic ambience filled the private loft venue in Williamsburg at our quarterly Very Important Queer event.
We stepped back in time to the world of Parisian artistic salons with a queer emphasis. With candles, wood floors, velvet couches, and more, the space truly transformed.
This night to remember featured a beautiful, queer cabaret show, starring the incredible Justice Roes and Maddie Crump. The full band accompaniment featured Scott, Yan, and Nancy. The show incorporated a reimagined queer love triangle. From theater classics like “Maybe This Time,” to queer restyling’s of hits like “The Girl is Mine,” this cabaret was full of amazing music, storytelling, and dancing.
After the cabaret, the musical stylings of DJ Dali filled the loft. There was an open bar, hor d’oeuvres, Mediterranean specialties, and dessert.
The open bar included creative cocktails like the EveryQueer Martini (Grey Goose vodka, passionfruit, lime, dash of cinnamon, and sparkling wine), Gertrude’s Stein (Bacardi, Campari, lime, pineapple juice, simple syrup, and cherry), and The Eddie Windsor (Hendrick’s gin, sparkling wine, lemon juice, simple syrup).
The variety of food options included chicken taouk, falfael, grilled vegetable, baba ganoosh, baklava, and more.
Queer joy and community is something truly special, and these events give us a chance to come together at a luxurious party where everyone can feel celebrated and uplifted. This was truly a night to celebrate the queer community and dance the night away in a room full of love, excitement, and joy.
