Fire Island Queer Dance Party
May 5, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 11:59 pm
Fire Island Beach Party Presented by Sean Craig!
Join us at Velveteen Rabbit for a queer dance party with performances galore and DJ Jaydean making all your dancing queen dreams come true!
Fire Island Cherry Grove and the more subdued “closeted” Pines (off of Long Island, NY) are a summer resort of sorts. In the 60’s it was illegal, at that time, for bars to “knowingly sell alcohol to homosexuals”, so they would head out to the island to party on the weekends. To this day, it is still a gay summer retreat and we are going back to the heyday of disco on the island!!
Come out for a cup of Pride Punch (non-alcohol available) or a craft cocktail from the Velveteen Rabbit Spring Menu. Throughout the night DJ Jaydean will be playing and talented members of the LGBTQ+ community will be doing surprise performances.
