Oh, and WEAR ALL WHITE, we want to show 2014 how classy the queers can be.
Yes, it is true. We have fallen for the new venue ARTS RIOT on Pine Street in Burlington. Like with most queer relationships, we had a VT Pride fling and have been dreaming about doing it all over again, and again.
So, starting in 2014 Pop-Up! Queer Dance Party and Arts Riot are going to go steady and get on the reg. Every third Saturday of the month, to start 2014, come find us at Arts Riot, doing what we do best —- a big, queer dance party, with social time, queer performances, and a little extra glitter here and there.
Save the dates:
Saturday, January 18th, 2014, 9pm-1am
Saturday, February 22nd, 2014 (we are doing the 4th this month because of DRAG BALL), 9pm-1am
Saturday, March 22nd, 2014, 9pm-1am

ABOUT POP-UP QUEER DANCE PARTY: Pop-Up! A Queer Dance Party is about reclaiming queer space in Vermont. It is about dancing, playing bingo, and coming together for fun events for the whole queer community. A not for profit effort, voluntarily produced by two Vermont queers – DJ Llu & Chopper, their goal is to make fun social queer space, not money.
In an attempt to help cross promote, try to not book the same nights in the same area, and generally build community amongst the queer social event producers in the state, we are looking to reach out to all queer event producers in Vermont (non-profit and for-profit). Are you a producer? Know someone who is? Please pass this on!
Calling all queer Vermont event producers!
Get your events listed at the RU12? Community Center event calendar (they are one of the most visited places on the web to get your events seen for free by the queer community!). Details here.
Sign up for the new queer VT producers listserv and network with other folks about your events. Sign up here:
