Queer events impresario Dame Luz presents us one of the biggest queer Halloween parties in the world, with more than 500 LGBTQ attendees and allies expected to take over the entire FringeArts venue for a bash that plans to be “bigger and badder than ever.” Guests should plan to rock their favorite costumes and party hard as special guest DJs (Sharyn Stone, Jamz, Reezey), drag performers (Icon Ebony Fierce, Ann Artist, Pretty Girl), and burlesque showstoppers (Raspberry Royale Troupe, Lucifer Rising, The Deva Arazel) plan to hit the stage during an outdoor beer garden social unlike none other.
