Afterglow NYE Thank you 1.2.2022

Hey friends and lovers,

Thanks to everyone who made it out yesterday. Thank you to our artists and DJs! And thank you to our volunteers!

Many thanks also to Supervisor Mandelman for helping with the permits to move a significant portion of our capacity indoors, allowing for a hybrid event.

Thank you, in particular to everyone’s understanding and flexibility for working with us to make the magic happen. This was NOT a normal Afterglow. And we understood that the changes and the climate were not enough for everyone, and thank you for letting us know that and requesting refunds in a timely manner. Whether you did or didn’t make it, we know that 2022 is going to be a continued exploration of being in community together. And so we invite you to keep collaborating with us and each other, as we look at ways to gather both in-person and online.

Final Storage Run

For those who are able to help on Monday from Noon to 4pm, we still need help putting party supplies back into storage at our Army Street Mini Storage unit.

Feedback About the Event

Each event Comfort & Joy strives to create a really magical experience for our queer community. And so WE'D LOVE YOUR FEEDBACK as our volunteer-led team reflects and make plans for future events. What were your fav aspects of the night? What needed improvement? Any particular ideas for the next one? Please let us know! Even if you weren’t able to make it, we’ve got at least one question for you <3

Lost and Found

If you lost something at Afterglow NYE, please let us know.

New Years Eve AFTERGLOW - the winter sister of our legendary pride party - is back again to offer you a glorious evening of revelry and celebration as we ring in 2022!

It’s been quite a couple of years since our last one, and whatever trials or triumphs you’ve been through we all deserve a beautiful moment to collectively celebrate what we’ve overcome and what we have before us.

At Comfort & Joy we love creating magical spaces to celebrate each person’s unique light and to offer you cathartic escape and revival, and are incredibly grateful for the privilege of providing our beloved community with a special New Year’s Eve experience for you to bask in euphoric bliss with your fellow queerdos until the break of dawn.

Come dance your heart out - from doors open until 5am we’ll be taking you on an exhilarating journey with our spectacular DJ line-up, which includes Homero Espinosa, Tobirus Mozelle, David Harness, Steve Fabus, The SyntheTigers, and Prince Wolf!! Additional DJs TBA.

Comfort & Joy is here for you: if you ever need support or have concerns at our parties, please find one of our 'vibe-raters' (purple glow collars) or a house manager (pink glow collars)

NYE silver/disco realness, dayglo/neon/glow anything and whatever else makes you feel fabulous is most highly encouraged!

And of course wave after wave of our special late-night fruity refreshments. Welcoming hugs at the door (optional). Full clothes check available; this is a clothing optional & affection encouraged event. This event is 21+.

NYE Afterglow is a luxurious, one-of-a-kind San Francisco celebration thrown by Comfort & Joy, a 501(c)3 volunteer-run non-profit and the winter sister of our legendary pride party. Proceeds enable us to host more fabulous parties, create our legendary village in the queerborhood at Burning Man, provide community art grants and offer free or discounted events supporting queer community, creativity, and expression here in the bay area. We thank you for your support!
