Why 2016 Is The Year Of Queer Women In Nightlife
This weekend, THUMP honors Pride with a celebration of all aspects of LBGTQ nightlife in NYC and beyond. Follow our Pride Weekend coverage here. Today, DJ, producer and promoter Whitney Day—a fixture in the lesbian party scene—sheds light on how queer women are reaching new levels of visibility and power in 2016. Pride is right around the corner, which means it’s been about a year since my last op-ed on THUMP, “Who Says the Lesbian Party Scene Is Dead?,” debunkedwhispers of the decline of queer female nightlife and DJ culture.

Siren Party: Girl Pride NYC
GRACE CHU The Saturday night Pride Eve party was conceived 17 years ago when Minnie Rivera and Lisa Cannistraci of the iconic Henrietta Hudson realized they could not house all of the international crowd traveling to NYC Pride at their, now 25 year, West Village bar. The party known as Siren stands as the biggest lesbian-centric event for women in NYC boasting crowds of 1800+ attendees every year. The event takes place at The South Street Seaport at the open air venue Watermark located on Pier 15 at John Street. This space is magical surrounded by water and three bridges for and elegant NYC party experience. This year the Henrietta gals are teaming up with Miss Mugshot Events to present The Biggest Women’s Pride party to date. Headlining DJ Whitney Day and the twin sister singing sensation Nina Sky are sure to rock the house along with DJ Daniela Sea of the L Word spinning with internationally acclaimed Swedish DJ Gunn Lundemo. They also have NYC’s most notorious female DJ’s Rosy Q & Nikki Lions in tow.  Go Go eye candy provided by Black Haus Creative under the direction of acclaimed showgirl Maria Kent.
