This pride season, we’re going back to our roots! Mainstream pride celebrates the economy of status and conformity, marriage and monogamy—the very systems that repressed us in the first place! We will not allow the domestication of our values and the sterilization of our culture—we must speak for ourselves.

We must RIOT!

Join us at Ivy House on Friday June 27, as we invoke the spirits of our radical queer ancestors.

In true Culture Whore fashion, every genre of performance is covered in the stable of talent. Shows begin at 1am with the hard-hitting, fresh, free-flow of Brooklyn-based rapper Charlie Denverr; drag artist Chris of Hur, who crafts layers of story and metaphor as expertly as she crafts her looks; politically-charged pop-culture deconstructionist Chris Tyler; ultra-faggy, high-energy hype man Frank Jones; Bushwig co-founder and Texas empress Horrorchata; Joan Crawford’s psychic drag descendant, Lucy Balls; a collaboration between BathSalts queens Macy Rodman and Severely Mame; interactive theatrics by Culture Whore cohorts Mark Dommu and Paul Leopold. The performances will build up to the ultimate drag battle, inside a moist kiddie pool, with drag wrestling between team Merrie Cherry and team Macy Rodman.

A trio of DJs—A Village Raid, David Sokolowski and JX Cannon—will be giving rhythm+bass, deep house, hip hop, nu disco, electropsych and ballroom beats, to keep you dancing well past sunrise.

A beautiful assortment of protestors from every facet of queer nightlife will be joining the riot, including Mr(s) Williamsburg winner Aja, Dizzyland mastermind Trey LaTrash, art duo MikeandClaire, Fancy’s Shane Shane, #GIANT rapper Will Sheridan, Untitled Queen, Arianna Huffenstuff, Charlene, Diego Montoya, Krobottom, Manifestany Squirtz, Lady Simon, Pandy and Rify Royalty.

Performance group Descent will be building installations to create a radical, post-normative fantasy where queers can break away from the homogeneous haze of society together. They’ll be aided through visuals by Keo.

We’re NOT *NORMAL*
We’re NOT TRYING TO BE LIKE *THEM*
We’re NOT SATISFIED with what *THEY* want us to be!
