Winter can get pretty cold in Seattle 🥶 Warm up with your chosen family over a proper Sunday Afternoon tea dance 💃‼️ Loosely Based returns with a HOT lineup of DJ's that are guaranteed to melt that winter frost 🔊🍵
What is a Tea Dance, you ask? Wikipedia describes it as "historically a dance held on a summer or autumn afternoon or early evening, from 4 to 7 p.m.," dating back to the 1800's. In recent history, however, it has been adopted by queer culture as a time to share dance steps, sip some drinks, and come together as a community under one, easy-going, unified, afternoon groove. The Sunday Afternoon Tea Dance is a staple in queer culture, but not something often fully-executed in Seattle, so don't miss this opportunity to defrost during a cold winter. In modern culture, "tea," is queer POC-based slang for gossip, and this is the dance party that everyone will be talking about. This is an event for EVERYONE regardless of sexual orientation, identity, gender, race, religion, shape, or size. In fact, some of our dopest DJ allies are on the lineup! As long as you believe in safe dance spaces for all, your presence is appreciated. Expect the finest in feel-good dance music and a lack of catty attitudes. Working up a sweat? We got you: Monkey Loft is relaxing on their 'shirts required' rule specifically for this event.
