Desperate Living


San Francisco’s new rock and roll night for queers+, is back! Bringing high energy off-the-wall punk rock antics to The Stud. Friday, April 7th, we have a night of live music and performances not for the faint of heart. Live bands Hollywood Hotel and Fulminate will be taking the stage along with fabulous hostess Black Benatar, drag performer-extraordinaire Dusty Moorhead, and burlesque by the stunning Dottie Lux! DJ's Jerk of All Trades (Veruca Bath Salts), DJ BJ (Austin McLynth) and Teeny Turner (Erik Karff from NYC party QxBxRx) will be providing the music. 

This month, Desperate Living will be raising funds and awareness for the LGBT National Help Center who runs several national hotlines that help the LGBT+ community through peer counseling and local resources. http://www.glbthotline.org/
