Lavender

Most new parties now, as always, are focused on men, so it’s great to see that one of the latest additions to the city’s queer party scene is geared towards queer women and non-binary folks. DJ Creshord spins, billing says “music from all your fav queers, and [the] Spice Girls.” The venue is accessible.

10pm–2am. Glad Day Bookshop, 499 Church St. For more info, visit Facebook.

The Anvil

We work hard, we play hard. The party based on a reference to a fictional gay dance club in The Simpsons returns with yet another tribute to hardworking people everywhere. DJs Mark Falco and Alfredo spin. Dress code: “industrial gear” is encouraged. Hot stuff coming through! The venue is accessible.

10pm–3am. Black Eagle, 457 Church St. For more info, visit Facebook.
