House of Babes 

Featuring a performance by bounce legend Katey Red.

Happy LGBTQ Pride, everyone! While the main parade in downtown San Francisco draws out mostly tourists and straight people and is overrun with corporate sponsors, there are plenty of cooler queer events going on in San Francisco throughout the last weekend of June. House of Babes is one of the best and biggest, and this year the party returns to Public Works with performances by New York rapper Dai Burger and Katey Red, a transgender MC from New Orleans who is known as the Mother of Sissy Bounce. Bounce music started in New Orleans’ LGBTQ community, and artists such as Red and Big Freedia made its sound and dance moves popular to the masses (twerking, hello). Katey Red is a cult hero in Louisiana but rarely performs on the West Coast, so this House of Babes will be a special one. Don’t forget your hot pants and do your stretches beforehand. A portion of the party’s proceeds go to Black Lives Matter, also.
