2019 marks the TENTH annual LGBTQ+ Pride event in the city, alongside the 50 year anniversary of the momentous Stonewall Riots in Greenwich Village which kick-started the modern LGBTQ+ rights movement, and we are proud to be hosting a late-night-all-welcome dance party celebration of ALL THE BODIES as part of it.
In collaboration with our friends at Lil Deb’s Oasis and Tiger House Hudson, and hosted by Hudson queer performance artists Davon & Celeste, the night will feature food, music, drinks and dancing til late, plus performances from the hosts and an array of queer Hudson Valley talent.
QUEER SPEED CRUISING
// GET TICKETS HERE //
Looking for a chance to connect with some hotties you saw on a float? Want to tell them your rising sign before the DJs start spinning?
After successful events in The City (for @_personals_, Leslie Lohman Museum, and The Windjammer), Alex Schmidt + Lily Marotta (your sexy beefcake yentas) are back to host a Pride Edition pre-game of speed cruising and networking for queer women, queer men, gender non-conforming honeys, and trans folx, this time hosted by Lil Debs for Basilica Hudson.
What is Queer Speed Cruising? It’s based on speed dating, the matchmaking event invented in the 90’s where people went on a ton of short “dates” with potential romantic partners over the course of one night. Queer Speed Cruising unlocks your potential to make the connections you you want to make! Cruise for a date, a roommate, a CSA, a job, an apartment, or just show up to watch it all go down.
There will be a donation-based bar alongside queer speed cruising sessions moderated by Lily and Alex. Fill out a name tag and get in the game. WHO KNOWS WHAT COULD HAPPEN?? You might just meet someone you wanna dance with!
This event is 21+, all gender identities, expressions, presentations and astrological signs are welcome. Bring your coworker, leave with your new summer fling / paramour / third / mentor / doubles partner / angel investor / etc.
ALL THE BODIES will be part of the official program for OutHudson Pride Weekend 2019, which incorporates arts, culture and community from a boat cruise to a movie screening, and from queeraoke to the weekend’s beloved technicolor parade down Warren Street.
