Because Halloween parties reproduce capitalist consumerism and cultural appropriation (e.g. Halloween costumes), we will not dance for Halloween, BUT WE WILL DANCE & PERFORM in the MISH-HALLOWEEN PARTY (or the NON-HALLOWEEN PARTY)!
===> “Mich-Halloween Party & Open-Stage Performances” is a benefit party/performance night for SEHAQ, Queer Refugees Group.
The microphone and stage will be waiting for your (faggy) fabulousness. We welcome drag shows, strip tease, lip-sync, impersonations performances, and more!I
Send us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org before the event to sign up on the “open stage” list.

12:30am-3am: Party with DJ sets // DJ Jay and DJ Flooka (Nisreen El) are mixing cheap dance beats from the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) and West Africa regions.
