AHG Presents: SEATTLE Queer Industry Night @ Life on Mars
June 5 @ 8:00 pm - 12:00 am
Queer Industry Night Makes its Seattle Debut at Life on Mars!
Allow Us to Introduce Ourselves!
Queer Industry Night is the brain child of host Erin Roo from The After Hours Group – an event conceived in San Francisco celebrating the LGBTQ service industry and providing a queer-ass space for us all to connect and party during Pride month.
We’re bringing QIN to Seattle for the very first time, featuring an asbolutely stacked lineup of LGBTQ+ bartenders from the city’s best cocktail bars ready to serve up a night of cocktails, community, and cruising. A portion of proceeds will be donated to The Groundswell Fund, a national organization focused on strengthening U.S. movements for reproductive and social justice by resourcing intersectional grassroots organizing and centering the leadership of women of color – particularly those who are Black, Indigenous, and transgender.
What to Expect:
Cocktails from Seattle’s best LGBTQ+ Bartenders!
Adam Aly (Foreign National)
John Fry (Rumba)
Robin Kim (Damn the Weather)
Celestina Nunez (Foreign National)
Cera Grindstaff (Dreamland)
Manny Contreras (En Rama)
PLUS Your Host, Erin Roo and an all-LGBTQ team from Life on Mars!
Music from some of Seattle’s best LGBTQ+ DJ’s!
DJ Baby Van Beezly – DJ Baby Van Beezly is one of Seattle’s premier nightlife and private event DJs. Her high energy sets are jam packed with turntablist tricks and hype girl vibes that will make it impossible for you not to get on your feet and let it rip on the dance floor! You can catch her playing at her residence venue Queer/Bar, also Supernova, Nectar, High Dive, The Cuff, The Woods, and so many more. They don’t call her “The Hardest Working DJ in Seattle” for nothing!
DJ MIXX America – MIXX’s specialty is creating a festive party atmosphere by seamlessly weaving together Top 40 tracks across various genres. As an openly queer artist, MIXX has a passion for supporting the LGBTQ+ community with a special focus on the often underrepresented POC, trans and youth in the community, and has provided the soundtrack for notable city events for the rainbow community, such as the Seattle PRIDE parade, the PRIDE flag raising ceremony and the mayor’s PRIDE reception.
