What We Do
A Queer Pride's various nightclub residencies came into the fold via the illustrious Chicago nightlife collective Stardust, who celebrated their 10 Year Anniversary at Berlin Nightclub in October 2018. A Queer Pride continues to showcase members of the Chicago nightlife, art and music communities through immersive and intersectional experiences with a combination of recurring nights, pop-ups, collaborations with local artists and major headliners.
- Berlin Nightclub, Lakeview: Weekly Thursday night rotation
- East Room, Logan Square: Monthly Thursday night pop-up
Pride Month Celebrations
A Queer Pride is a new collective of seasoned professionals from Chicago's LGBTQ nightlife landscape, working to celebrate Pride throughout the year.
Since June 2018, A Queer Pride has worked towards making Pride in Chicago an inclusive celebration that happens throughout the city. Working throughout the year to curate unique activations and bring talent from across the globe, A Queer Pride produces pop-up events, venue takeovers and live music shows that elevate underground queer artists.
- Chicago Is A Drag Festival at The Cheetah Gym Parking Lot, Andersonville
- Chicago Pride Parade After-Party at The Annoyance Theatre, Lakeview
- Out To Climb: Pride Edition at Brooklyn Boulders Chicago, West Loop
- Big Gay Brunch at Boiler Room, Logan Square
- Junipero Disco, a month-long pop-up at Emporium, Logan Square (June 2018)
A Queer Pride strongly believes in celebrating queer culture throughout the year, pairing queer artists with venues and brands outside of Pride ventures and in line to form long term and long lasting relationships. Instead of limiting special guests and headliners to just Pride, A Queer Pride cultives connection for every season. We produce pop-ups throughout the year, including:
- And various live shows featuring artists like Leikeli47, Tunde Olaniran, RV Mendoza, and more!
Event Production and Coordination
Whether it's producing large-scale parties, curating private engagements or programming hospitality events, A Queer Pride is a one-stop shop for all event production and coordination services. We offer assistance at every step along the way, starting with conceptualizing and curating, to booking talent and security, equipment rental, and installations. With our extensive network of connection in the arts and entertainment industries, and LGBTQ-driven organizations and brands, A Queer Pride strives to bring your message to your intended audience.
LGBTQ Proficiency and Sensitivity Consultations
The modern consumer landscape is intersectional and evolving. While sensitive discussions of identity, especially regarding sexuality and gender, have become more commonplace, many businesses and individuals have not had the necessary training or education to properly engage with them. A Queer Pride can provide culturally competent and confidential consultations to help businesses and individuals increase LGBTQ proficiency, understand emerging language and provide best practice for engaging with intersectional and sensitive discourse.
