DO THIS: William Way’s Indigogo Queer Polar Dance Party at Underground Arts

A few months ago, in our recurring end-of-the-week column Philanthropy Friday, William Way Development Director Michael Pomante hinted that, after the success of last fall’s IndiGoGo, the Center would be hosting another one at Underground Arts this winter. Well he wasn’t kidding: Plans have been made, DJs have been booked. Indigogo: A Queer Polar Dance Party is, well, a go-go.

Like last fall’s event, a slew of LGBT party producers are banding together to supply the entertainment for the event. There will be around 10 DJs playing on three dancefloors throughout Underground Arts, including G Philly contributor and Gayborhood dancefloor staple DJ Carl Michaels, Nolita Selector (courtesy of Cutn Paste), DJ Jovi Baby (Stimulus), and TRPRKPR and DJ Sharyn Stone (NSFW Dance Party), among others.

There will also be drag and circus performances by HoneyTree EvilEye, Cirque Manikk, and 2014 Mr. Everything winner Kemar Jewel.

All proceeds from the event benefit William Way Community Center and its work to provide a safe space, HIV testing opportunities and programming for Philly’s LGBT community. To get tickets, which are $10 advance and $20 at the door, go here.
