This year’s stage performances co-hosted by the fabulous Mama Dora (Dora M Ama) and SirJoQ will delight you with acts by:
* Jocquese Whitfield (SirJoQ), legendary SF vogue dancer/choreographer/MC/instructor - highlighted on MTV’s hit show ‘The Real World’ - his career is steeped in freestyle hip-hop improvisation as well as modern, classical and Diasporic dance traditions.
* Special guest from Chicago, drag and burlesque star Otter Chaös - the beyond binary, bearded ballerina that lives somewhere between king and queen, horror and cosplay, classical elegance and raw sexuality.
* A triage of cosmic LED ambience from the beloved Liam Ocean, Vertel Jackson and Aaron Zamarron, plus crafts and slime monster realness from Llano River Blue, giving you all sorts of circus love.


The evening's finale will be a spectacular GayGlo Guerrilla Theater blacklight performance called “Journey to Earth” from the windows above the party, led by original organizers Chickpea (Brian Busta), Jason Smart, Alex Robinson and DJ TomCat, plus supporting staff – you don’t want to miss it!

For nearly two decades, GayGlo Guerrilla Theater was an infamous hallmark of the Castro’s radical queer culture, shutting down streets and delighting thousands of spectators with its amazing blacklite performances and saucy commentary.

We’re excited to be able to honor this Castro legend and offer you a beautiful, fun-packed night of revelry and community!

To sparkle up your own looks, bask in beautiful neon face/body paint from the talented Kamran Adib and Joia De Vita
