Open Dyke Night
Open Dyke Night is a piano bar karaoke/ sing-a-long night geared towards the lesbian/ queer community taking place every second Thursday of the month at Tramp Stamp Granny's in Hollywood. Enjoy hand crafted cocktails and sing along to your favorite classics, show tunes, and pop hits played live on the piano by Laura Wiley or Lisa Crawley and hilariously hosted by Anna Goodman. ODN started in June of 2019 and (despite the short break from the pandemic) has been thriving ever since.
Hidden Hearts came into fruition in August, 2021 and now takes place every last Thursday of the month at De Buena Planta in Silverlake, Los Angeles. Guests wear designated heart stickers to signify whether their heart is "taken", "open", "broken/healing" or if they're just looking for friends. This interactive and fun icebreaker helps guests connect throughout the evening and mix mingle over craft cocktails, cervezas, or delicious plant based tapas and dance the night away with music played by new DJs each month.
HOT FLASH is a lesbian queer party specifically for community members over the age of 30 featuring Motown, rock, funk, disco and dance hall hits. Enjoy drinks, music, and potential connection in a less loud, intimate, mature and safe environment. This event was started in October 2022 and is in partnership with Sorrell of Divorce (DJ Couples Therapy).
Girls, Gays, & Theys
Girls, Gays & Theys is a monthly party for women, nonbinary, transgender, and gay identifying folks, featuring live band performances and a DJ dance party for guests to rock out, make friends, and party all night, currently taking place at The Virgil in Silverlake. This event was started in December, 2022 in partnership with Ashlee Belzo of Puff Dao.
Sapphic Sounds is a monthly early evening soiree and night swim for vinyl loving lesbians and queers! Guests are encouraged to bring their own vinyl records for our DJ to curate and play throughout the night, as well as wear a swimsuit to take a dip in the pool! This event came to fruition in May 2023 and has become a popular night out for those that want to connect with the community, cool off and listen to chill music while still making it home before 11pm.
