Youth Pop Up Fashion Show
Saturday, June 23 @ 11am - 6pm

I am proud to announce that I am working with Target on a Pride campaign to produce a dapperQ young adult pop up fashion show for the second consecutive year for NYC Pride's official Youth Pride! The event will take place on Saturday, June 23rd  from 11am-6pm and is free to the public. Youth and family-centered activities will include the pop-up show, a dapperQ "Drop It Like It's Haute" confetti drop, and other multi-media activations, such as performers, DJs, and digital photo booths. More here.

Target provided each youth model with a $100 gift certificate to curate an outfit that best represents their identity. Youth will keep their outfits after the event! Many of the models recruited also receive services from local youth LGBTQ advocacy groups. Instagram influencer and stylist Alethia Castillo and I will be joining the youth for their Target shopping excursion and famed queer photographer The Street Sensei (Kim Geronimo) will film and photograph our shopping experience and the show for publication on AC and dapperQ after the event.

SIREN
Saturday, June 23 @ 9pm - 4am

This is one of my most favorite, sexy grown parties of the year. After a hard day of producing the Youth Pride show, I always stop in to see my Henrietta Hudson family for an event that always impresses. Yes, I'm that bougie high femme who loves to sip her mocktails (or cocktails if you're into it) under the stars with views of the Brooklyn Bridge and East River, while some of the sexiest and most talented DJs spin the soundtrack to my Pride lyfe! And, if I want to get up and dance, what's better than an outdoor dance floor sans all the sweaty body shoving? Stop by and talk to me and my socially awkward but fashionable crew at the dapperQ table. 

Here's more info:
