WHAT: La Queer is a new queer party at the CSPC! With Americano on the stage for a kinky drag number, BAREBACCHUS on the decks, and a leather showcase from HowlingPupLeather, this party is going to be FABULOUS. We invite you to bring your friends and join us for a fuck ton of fun and hopefully a ton of fun fucking.
WHO: This event is for queer folx and their friends! “Queer" here is used as an umbrella term for anyone who identifies as not-heterosexual or not-cisgender, including but not limited to people who identify as: gay, lesbian, bisexual, genderqueer, agender, bigender, transgender, third gender, trans, genderfluid, gaymo, bicurious, asexual, homosexual, homofabulous, homoflexible, heteroflexible, intersex, questioning, pansexual, MTF, FTM, butch, femme, fag, dyke.
If you identify with one of these groups, then this party is for you!
If you aren't queer and are not attending with a queer person, we invite you to join us at a different event. We know our parties are less frequent than usual, but we ask that you respect our intention to create a queer space with this event.
WHERE: Our new home is in Pioneer Square’s hottest new kinky art gallery which boasts two floors of space for play space, including racks, hardpoints, and mattresses, all situated against backdrop of exposed brick and beams. The main floor of this space is wheelchair accessible, but our basement area is only accessible by a staircase.
Restrooms are gender neutral. This is not a scent free space.
- This is a “yes means yes” space. We ask you to please don’t initiate ANY KIND of physical contact with anyone without asking and obtaining a “yes” first.
- We have people here of all genders and orientations. Do not assume anything about anyone based on how they look or who they are playing with.
- When voyeuring from social areas please be conscious of how your energy may project into a scene, even from afar. Give the players their space unless you are invited to come watch upclose by the participants. If you are asked to move away or look away from a scene please respect the request.
Directions and Parking
Gallery Erato is located at 309 1st Ave S. There is a pay parking lot along our north wall. Pioneer Square has free on-street parking after 6pm (more info about street parking here) and paid parking lots, which you can find listed here. This neighborhood is very well served by public transportation, including many bus lines, the streetcar, and the LINK light rail.
This new member orientation will have an ASL interpreter! Regarding mobility: There are steep sidewalk cuts in the historic sidewalks of Pioneer Square and a small lip from the brick sidewalk into the Gallery. We have purchased a wheelchair ramp to transition over this lip so that our main floor will be accessible to folks in wheelchairs. There will be play space, social space, refreshments, and restrooms on the main floor. Unfortunately, the basement of our space is only accessible via stairs.
