Clit Party: Electro Pop Love

The Clit Party is back again, with DJ May Crown spinning playful and sexy techno for the ladies to dance to this Thursday in the Condesa. The party offers itself as an alternative to Lipstick, but caters to a similar crowd: twenty and thirty-somethings, middle class, femme-of-center. Being in the Condesa, however, expect a slightly more [...]

Kumbia Knights ride again!

Back in July of last year we posted about Kumbia Knights, then a weekly event at the Marrakech. Now, DJ Guagüis is reviving Kumbia Knights, for one night only (at least for the time being…). This Wednesday, November 11, she joins invited guest Bootlegumachine at El Imperial  in the Colonia Condesa. I’m guessing this is [...]

“Clit Party” this Thursday

I was just finishing a coffee in the Condesa on Monday with some friends, when what should arrive with our bill than a stack of flyers for a lesbian party this Thursday. I have to admit I don’t know a thing about this party except what is advertised on the flyer. Will this party be [...]

Back again: Lesbian Thursdays at Cabaretito VIP

One of my favorite lesbian venues in Mexico City, Cabaretito VIP, has reopened after a long closure, bring back their lesbian night on Thursdays for us machas. Cabaretito VIP holds a special place in my heart; it was the location of the first dyke party I went to in Mexico City and was the home [...]

Celebrate Mexico Now (in New York City…)

As someone who truly loves Mexico City, but is based (for the time being) in Brooklyn, NY, I was thrilled to realize that this week (Sept. 8-15) is the fifth annual Celebrate Mexico Now Festival here in New York City. From their website: Celebrate México Now, a groundbreaking citywide festival, offers an introduction to the vanguard of [...]

2nd Annual Rock and Sexual Diversity Film Festival

Today is the opening night of the Second Annual Rock and Sexual Diversity Film Festival, which features film screenings, musical performances, a fashion show, and several dance parties. According to co-organizer Artemisa Téllez, the festival aims to create a space that is welcoming for the GLBT punks, emos, darketos (goths), and others who may not [...]

Kumbia Knights at El Marrakech

Anahí and I have been remiss in not publicizing this weekly event sooner. We went to the opening night the first Thursday after the pride march, and there are only two more Thursdays in July to check out this free party. But, based on the scene we saw on the night we went two weeks [...]

La Bomba

When I arrived at this bar, the first impulse I had was to call the crowd to order and give a history lesson. This group of queer preppies, dressed in a way that I couldn’t understand, were giving me deja vu from the short period when I worked as a high school teacher. But the [...]

Marrakech Salón

I guess this is the upside of the gentrification of the Centro Historico. At least, that’s how I’m interpreting the opening of the Marrakech Salon, a great bar located on Republica de Cuba between the Viena and La Perla, both famous local gay bars. This place was founded by a couple of guys who also [...]

El Under

The Under, Mexico City’s foremost darketo (goth) club, is a must for those seeking a different corner of chilango nightlife. Located in the colonia Roma, The Real Underground was opened a few years ago in order to create a space that was welcoming to members of this subculture. The proprietors of the club, darketos themselves, [...]
