As you all know, the past Sunday we had to indefinitely pause our weekly party due to the spread of COVID19 — in the 7 years of doing QUEEN!, we have never once closed our doors on a Sunday so we want you to know this was a heavy decision. As coronavirus has spread, almost all of our work has come to a halt... us DJs, drag queens, producers, photographers, bartenders and so many more are now without our weekly income that we’ve come to depend on. This is where you come in... we know you’ve been asked by so many to donate money to help them survive, and to be frank, we are doing the same thing. But if you’re someone who has walked down those stairs on any given Sunday, you know we are a family. From $1 to $1000, we’d appreciate any and all help... we’ve sweetened the deal with some exclusive incentives to make sure you’re taken care of for taking care of us.
Much love, stay safe and see you on the dance floor soon!
UPDATE: Thanks to all the donors and their inspiring generosity throughout the past few days! In order to augment our efforts to support our amazing staff, we’re offering some great incentives as a thank you for your donations and continued support.
