Queerly Beloved 2024

Queerly Beloved events are crafted to encourage connection and community through the curation of underground artist reviews, shows, and dance parties. Our party is open to all members of the LGBTQ+ community, and we strive to feature a range of queer femme, fat, QTBIPOC, and trans artists. Our annual Queerly Beloved Queer Pride Party, we also have moments during Folsom, Halloween, & other gay holidays. Queerly Beloved is a DIY affair – we never take corporate partnerships. Our events are made possible through ticket sales and collaboration with iconic Bay Area institutions like El Rio and 1015 Folsom.

At Queerly Beloved, we know that nightlife is more than just a party. By creating a space where people can express themselves freely and without fear of judgment, we’re helping to build a community that’s stronger, more resilient, and more empowered.

Our events feature some of the most exciting and talented performers in the Bay Area and beyond, from DJs to drag performers to burlesque dancers and more. In 2023 we featured the international superstar Peaches, as well as folks like Venus Bizarre and Mahx Aorta. We also partner with local organizations to raise awareness and funds for important causes, including sex worker rights, healthcare access for marginalized communities, easy access to life-saving NARCAN, and support for trans individuals.

QUEERLY BELOVED was conceived in Bay Area artist and porn maker COURTNEY TROUBLE’s backyard during a Pride year when everything seemed to be way too expensive (2009, to be exact!) and is now a thriving queer party production project.

The main goal of QUEERLY BELOVED is to provide a salacious, sweaty, and heavenly queer dance party. We will never have corporate pride sponsorship. We benefit local businesses, indie art projects, and non-profit organizations. We employ mostly femme, POC DJs and performers. We are run by sex workers and remain a queer, punk, and kink-positive place.
