This week I had the pleasure of interviewing a great small business: @gayasstrology !
- Tell me a little about yourself:
“We are a Queer Dance party that began in May 2018. We quickly grew into what some called “The Biggest Queer Dance Party in Los Angeles.” In February 2020 we debuted the party on the East Coast in NYC. Each month, we provided a safe space for the Queer community to socialize and celebrate their Sun Signs!”
2. How did you come up with your club name?
“It was a combination of our love of Astrology, the Queer nightlife community, and a funny email from our friend, Comedian John Early, which created Gay Asstrolgy Dance Party. “
3. How did you come up with this conception of a community dance party?
“We had been having monthly Full Moon parties in our backyard. We’d invite friends over and read from an astrology book and listen to music. We had always talked about doing something together, throwing a party of some sort. When the Satellite gave us the first Friday time slot, we saw it as an opportunity to take the three things we love so much (Dancing, Queer life, Astrology) and to provide a safe space for the LGBTQIA+ community in East L.A. to dance!”
4. Can you talk about your go-fund me?
“Our GoFundMe started after the pandemic/Covid crisis as a way to generate funds for our DJs and Promoters etc who basically lost their source of income over night. We continue to host Gay Ass Parties online and are working on new ways to provide for the community. The GoFundMe still serves as our main source of financial support for all the parties.”
5. Do you have any exciting news or events that you would like to share?
“We will continue to host virtual Zoom dance parties and have community driven content via other social platforms. We are also working on building the Dreams Of L.A. Foundation to further provide a space for Queer voices, artists, activists, and charities. “
