Creature XIII: Paper Anniversary

&& we’re packing our bill to celebrate

for those who aren’t super up on victorian wedding traditions, you're supposed to give & get paper on yr first anniversary. so, that's the theme: newspaper// crepe paper// wrapping paper// construction paper// folded paper// bloody paper -- paper chains// paper fortune tellers// paper hats// paper masks// paper mache -- bible pages// dead sea scrolls// pages from yr fave vintage porn// dollars// euros. idk, you weirdos are genius babes, you’ll make it work. (shout out to the late, great SEA party Butch Queen for letting us crib this theme ♥)

FRI // FEB. 16 // THE STUD // 10PM to 4AM // $5 b/f 11 & $12 after

NOTE: we’re increasing our cover by $2 this month (and this month only). as usual, you can get in for $5 before 11. after that, though, we’ll be asking for $12. that extra cash goes to help support a decked out line-up that is far beyond what we usually are able to offer. we love to pay our performers well and this $2 will help with that. THAT SAID -- for our queer fam, if you wanna get in for the usual $10, you can do something very simple: bring us a love note or bloody valentine and we’ll let you in for the usual $10. we try to be hella accessible to our community and hope that this little step might help. hit us up if you’ve got questions @ Creature SF.

for the uninitiated: creature is a collaborative project, a night for all queer bodies (and legit 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. this month’s recipient is Star Amerasu, an incredible musician, magical babe and integral member of the Bay Area queer community. *~*~*~*

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, ageism, 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.
