Grown & Sexy Pride

The only thing better than a Pride dance party at First Avenue is a Pride dance party at First Avenue accompanied by performances from top-notch drag queens, kings, and burlesque dancers. DJ Shannon Blowtorch, who spins at queer dance-night staples Soul Friday and Berlin, will keep the bass in your face. Meanwhile, the list of performers is extensive. There'll be two sets by Raja, the drag queen whose eclectic outfits won her the top title in the third season of RuPaul's Drag Race. The folks from the popular Dykes Do Drag (now in its 14th year) will bend genders in the other direction. Award-winning burlesque dancers include Chicago dudes Ray Gunn and Bazuka Joe, while the ladies are led by Nadine DuBois and Burlesque Hall of Famer Sweetpea. No doubt, both the dance floor and the tassels will be jumping all night long. 18+. (Sweetpea, DJ Shannon Blowtorch, and Nadine DuBois. Photo by Wijadi Jodi)
