Party Noire at Junipero Disco[CHI | June 2018]

🚨🚨We’re about to live our own Junipero dream 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 This Friday 🗓 June 1st we kick off PRIDE month for a first of its kind endeavor🌈. A Queer Pride (@aqueerpride) will transform space into a retro-futuristic immersive experience called #JuniperoDisco - inspired by time travel, queer love, San Junipero and reimagining gay bathhouse culture. Junipero Disco recenters this nostalgia and romanticization to focus on queer women, femmes and people of color. Rae Chardonnay (@djraechardonnay) will be joined by Professor-Wrecks (@professeur_wrecks ) + Morenxxx (@jes_hilario) to supply the retro futurist sounds for the night.

The popup will be an extensive installation by Anarchitype Productions (@anarchitype.productions) of classic fixtures of a bathhouse- lockers, steam room etc, combined with 80s aesthetics of neon, two-tone colored lighting, arcade games and more. In an effort to bring together various queer communities in Chicago, Junipero Disco will host special edition takeovers from 14 different LGBTQ nightlife curators, collectives and promoters, allowing for a rotating cast of some of the best DJs, performers and hosts in the city.  Bring all your dancing #BlackJoy to the space 🌈🌈🌈
