IN HONOR OF PRIDE: YOUNG UTRECHT ORGANIZATION CONNECTS QUEER COMMUNITY WITH HOUSE AND 80S DISCO
In celebration of Pride, we are collaborating with the young Utrecht-based organization PY•PS, which (re)connects the roots of house and 80s disco with the queer community. It’s gonna be groovy! Expect House with Disco influences, queer anthems and Ballroom sounds with glitter on your snout and plenty of hydration, because it’s going to be hot. Will we see you there?
This PY•PS Pride night will be opened with a special performance by rapper, producer and songwriter Babs. This artist likes to fight the stereotypes around gender and sexuality. In her music, the story is key and she wraps this in fast-paced dance drums, melodic rap and unpredictable, funky chords with a cheerful pop flavour.

PY•PS is a open-minded event organization founded by four queer people looking for a place to express their true selves. PY•PS is the missing connection in Utrecht that provides this place. We connect house music, the disco movement and raw talent floating in the flow of PY-PS. We are an event with a raw edge where different currents float together through our shafts and explode with steam and glitter.
PY•PS targets the queer, lgbtqiia+ community and their friends in Utrecht. The goal is to create and facilitate an environment where it is safe to explore your own identity, dress how you want, not how you should dress, and create a safe space to discover new things. Visitors can be completely themselves. We do not tolerate discrimination, sexism, body shaming, ableism, competence, harassment of any kind.
