Get Low

A new hip-hop dance party for queer people of color.


Chaney Turner of Social Life Productions has been throwing parties in her native Oakland for the past decade. Over the years, her events have provided many safe spaces for the East Bay’s queer people of color to turn up. Her latest event, a new hip-hop dance party called Get Low, premieres at Starline Social Club this Saturday. While billed as an event for queer people of color, allies are also welcome. DJs Lady Ryan, Motive, and Criddy will spin, while Atomic Allure provides pole dancing entertainment. Furthermore, the event promises live art and light shows. But above all else, it’ll be an inviting place for non-hetero folks to dance, have fun, and maybe get a little sexy in a setting that doesn’t prioritize the straight, male gaze.
