This Pride is gonna be a zoo, gurl! We're talking lions, tigers, bears, pigs, otters, pups, cougars and more. Feature your inner creature at Afterglow, Comfort & Joy's annual Pride party. C&J specializes in good vibes and warm welcomes, so you can be yourself, regardless of what your DNA is packing. We're planning a full-on call of the wild moment for you all. Don't miss it!
Biscuts and Poppers the Clown, along with the Welcoming Committee, will usher you into your nightlife safari.
Our spacious coat check awaits everything you wish to unburden yourself of. This is a clothing optional & affection encouraged event.
Before heading inside, check out Cuddles In Space, brought to you by C&J's Art Committee. A serene tented oasis full of plushy goodness, interactive projections, tea service, tarot, massage chair & buffer, ready to accept you into it's warm embrace when you need some chill time.
C&J Art Director Chickpea debuts his lastest gay-glo creation "Clown Town", and co-conspiritors, including Steve Dudek, Mitcho, and Curtis Canaday, provide sensually luminescent artwork.
If you're feeling a little Basic Betty, allow one of our splendid make-up artists, including Joshua Katz, to beat your mug into club-kid shape.
We are proud, in collaboration with Moulton Music, to present a fantastic line-up of DJ talent, featuring local legends sprinkled with internationally renowned talent, who will present the soundtrack for wherever the night takes you.
