Creature IV: Flora

we've been feeling that spring energy lately -- but obviously we wanna celebrate in our own twisted way. so, let's channel flora this month, but like with carnivours plants, bloody thorns and flowers that bloom at night. floral-printed queer futures in the dark, ya know?

(as always, we'll have some small presents for folks who really turn a look -- but also, this party is all about coming as you are. however you show up, you're perfect.)

for the uninitiated: creature is a new collaborative project, a night for all queer bodies (and for real allies) to come together, get close and sweat. we feature an eclectic mix of performers, music (synth pop/ future club/ house/ techno/ punk/ && beyond), installations and projections -- all to keep your mind constantly spinning.

brought to you w/ love by the creature crew (YSC, Skin, iamMom, Jerry Lee and Gossip Cat)

*~*~*~* each month, we donate a percentage of the door to an organization that reflects our queer values. in february, we raised $400 for El/La Para TransLatinas. this month's beneficiary is Lyric, a queer youth-focused org whose "mission is to build community and inspire positive social change through education enhancement, career trainings, health promotion, and leadership development with LGBTQQ youth, their families, and allies of all races, classes, genders, and abilities." To suggest a future recipient, feel free to send a message to any of the hosts highlighted above or catch us in person at the party. *~*~*~*

creature is a celebration of all queer bodies. it is a safer space for self expression and coming together. that means we will not put up with any sort of anti-blackness, racism, ableism, fatphobia, transphobia, misogyny, femmephobia, xenophobia, islamophobia, etc. etc. we are not about to let bigots ruin our good time or yours.

There are two steps leading up to the club at the entrance on Harrison near Gordon. There's a second entrance that is wheelchair accessible on the corner of Harrison and 9th. If you'd like to use this entrance, you can, at any time, ask the staff at the Gordon entrance to open it up. Or, if you'd rather, please feel free to reach out to us here and we can coordinate to make sure there's somebody stationed at the Ninth Street door for your arrival.

A ramp with a slight incline connects the dance floor and the main bar area. None of the bathrooms are gendered and there is one, larger single-use bathroom. However, none of the restrooms at the moment are equipped with handlebars. The Stud Collective is working to make their bathrooms more accessible in the near future, and we'll be sure and keep our party updated with those details.

Please, if this doesn't provide enough information for you or we've missed something, let us know. We'll get back to you ASAP and post any new info here.
