Asian American Queer Prom Diasporic Disco

March 21 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Join us for a dazzling night of disco and dancing!

The Disco Era took flight in Asian and Middle Eastern nightlife through the late 70s to the 80s. Disco’s influence took over the club scene throughout the world, especially within Bollywood, in Tehran, Thailand, Japan, Singapore, and Hong Kong. The dance floor of discotheques has been a haven for queer celebration, liberation, and self-expression. Our prom will particularly draw inspiration from the warm, rich colors found in the Bollywood and Desi disco scene and we’re excited to see y’all there!
