Darqness A Queer And Trans People Of Color Party With Taffy Dale' says
Hey QTs, it's almost time for the May 1 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 TAFFY DALÉ and DARQNESS resident REVEREND DOLLARS.


3 year resident of Seattle, TAFFY DALÉ grew up in the contrasts of rural Indiana, the coastal city of Puerto la Cruz, Venezuela and the majority of her time in Miami, Florida. This diversity of places, peoples and cultures is evident in her enthusiasm for everything from 90s pop, hardstyle reggaeton & booty bass to witch house, trap rap & electronica.

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.
