Group Hug

Ballroom Blitz

Hot damn, it’s bound to be sweaty this week as Albuquerque Pride 2012 kicks off. Temperatures could soar over 100 degrees on Saturday when the crowning festivities take over the city. The better to glue your glitter with, my pretty!

From the bravery of Stonewall rioters to the chief pro-Prop 8 witness reversing his stance on Friday, there are countless shining moments of LGBTQ history to celebrate. With that in mind, the Alibi and Albuquerque Pride proudly extend a sparkle-laden Group Hug to start the revelry off right.

Exclamatory particulars of the Pre-Pride Glam Dance Party:

Wednesday, June 27 (Tomorrow!)

9:30 p.m.

18+ welcome, but you must be 21 to drink. (Don’t forget your ID!)

Lotus nightclub, 211 Gold SW.

A mere $5 gets you in the door.

DJs Tahnee, Nicolatron and Cassyle will spin disco / electro / glam hits to whirl your Disco Queen into a frenzy. Rebel Donuts’ sugar wizardry will have her licking glitter frosting off your face. Hotpants, shiny jumpsuits, towering collars, feathered hair, space oddities—all mightily encouraged.
