3 Parties For Your Oakland Pride Weekend

A.B.L.U.N.T. was one of the first parties for queer women of color in the ’90s, and it has recently reemerged as a platform for cutting-edge, genre-bending DJs from the Bay and beyond. DJs Him Hun, Neurokill, Ghostmilk, EDGESLAYER, Honeybear, On.Mommas, Blossom, Gloamy Dawn, Black2Brown, De Alma and Twink 2 Death will be behind the decks at Brix, and a secret after-party announcement is forthcoming.

Sept. 10, 3 p.m.
Free before 4 p.m., $15 after

Thanks to Barbie, we all now have hot pink in our closets. It’s a perfect wardrobe choice for Femme World, a party celebrating feminine rappers and pop stars. With DJs Emelle, climaxXx, Ivy and CYBERSP1C3 behind the decks, the party promises danceable mixes that include artists like pop star Kim Petras, experimental producer SOPHIE, “Lipstick Lover” hitmaker Janelle Monáe and more. (Full disclosure: I DJed at Crybaby for another party in May.)
