The event creator says
Let's start the summer right with the June 5 edition of DARQNESS: a queer and trans people of color party at MAXIM's. Come and dance with fellow QTPOC in a safer space to the hottest hiphop, r&b, dancehall, latin, club, house, and more, provided by ERIC FURY and DARQNESS resident REVEREND DOLLARS.


ERIC FURY is a DJ, producer, and aspiring sage originally from Brooklyn, NY & currently residing in Portland, OR. His performances are seamless, high energy, sonic collages- blending various contemporary and retro/ old school dance music styles to create a unique atmosphere of both intensity and nearly manic euphoria while maintaining a dynamic and narrative quality that will make you want to dance, even after your legs fall off. Eric has played alongside acts including Astronomar, RP BOO, Flava D, Cy Kosis, Massacooramaan & more. The party never stops!

REVEREND DOLLARS is a Seattle-based DJ/producer who is the resident DJ and organizer of DARQNESS: a queer and trans people of color party, and whose most recent release, Arson EP, was praised by The Stranger as "a cauldron of peak-time, fast-twitch bass music, blazing with party-igniting exhortations, airhorns, A+ funk samples, and heavy-weight-champ percussion."


The Space:
MAXIM's is owned and operated by queer women of color: "We believe Maxim's belong to the community, and we cater to the needs of the community, because we understand that there is no unity without a community. Maxim's is a safe, loving space to socialize, while feeling the positive vibe and healing powers from music and laughter."

Accountability statement:
DARQNESS is intended as a safer space for queer and trans people of color, organized by QTPOC, as an alternative to queer spaces where our needs, safety, and comfort are not prioritized. Allies and fellow partygoers are asked to acknowledge and respect the QTPOC-centric nature of the space. Please be respectful of fellow partygoers' boundaries or you will be asked to leave.

On Rainier, near the corner of Rainier and Orcas. Accessible by 7 and 9 buses.

Accessibility info:
Maxim's is not currently set up to accommodate wheelchair accessibility.

All bathrooms will be gender-neutral for this event.

Partygoers are asked to reduce their use of scented products.
