Initiate your Pride Weekend with UNDERGROUND: Foreplay. Get lubricated from 8pm to midnight with themed cocktails, music by DJ Mowgli, and a two-story dance party. Enter the party on the first level where you'll be greeted by music, cocktails, and plush seating to get in the vibe. When you're ready head downstairs to the Black Box where DJ Mowgli will work his craft amidst black velvet, concrete, and a whole lot of bumping and grinding.

Dress as you desire. The party is an homage of music, dance, and liberation to celebrate 50 years of progress. We suggest dressing with a hint of foreplay…we are a community of weird. wild. wonderful. Feel yourself, let loose a little bit.

Also featured will be a visual and performing arts showcase from 8-9pm in collaboration with Cincinnati Black Pride including Lisa McLymont, poets L. Lamar Wilson, Hanifah Walidah, RaeShawn, Siri Imani, and DJ Kaotic. Hosted by Tim’m West.

This event wouldn't be possible without the support of Beam Suntory, Artswave Pride, Cincy Black Pride and Fausto.

Admission is $20.
