DADT is Boston’s longest running queer party- and we’re bigger and badder than ever.

On January 27th we will be celebrating our SEVEN year anniversary! Thats right… seven years of dancing, drag, art, expression, themes, fashion, love, lust and chaos. We have been host to more than ONE HUNDRED performers over the course of the past EIGHTY FIVE parties that have been held in either Allston, Cambridge or Jamaica Plain. The longevity and success of DADT has always been due to its inclusive values as represented in its motto ‘ALL ARE WELCOME WHO WELCOME ALL’.

Its our birthday…so as they say, go big or go home. ‘Straight’ out of NYC we are bringing two special guest DJs from the sickening queer party BITCHNASTY- ICKARUS $ HANNAH LOU

Ickarus is a multidisciplinary New York-based creative with a heavy focus on identity and its intersections. In addition to their own work, Ickarus contributes to the production and social media facets of collective artist publication Creeps Annual and conceptual fashion brand LACTIC Incorporated. They also DJ a variety of parties throughout Brooklyn during the week including every Friday at The Rosemont for BITCHNASTY. Their preferred pronouns are they / them / theirs.
Hannah Lou, Brooklyn’s enfant terrible, is a sickening drag performance artist & DJ who is coming up on her 5th year in the drag world and 2nd year spinning beats. She’s found her way into the heart of NYC nightlife spinning at some of the biggest parties in the boroughs. She is part of the House of Bushwig as a protégé to her mother and founder of the house, Horrorchata, which has given her the opportunity to travel and influence the world with her unique sound.

Resident DJ and host Colby Drasher will also be on the decks delivering his sonic medicine to desperately ill. Having shared the stage with everyone from Mykki Blanco, and Peaches, to Pansy Division and Leif- his skills and reputation for wrecking dance floors precedes him- whether its a club the size of Royale or the more intimate hall of Great Scott.



These performers are the cream of the crop, people! This generations of legendary Boston queens that have been collecting awards, hosting their own parties, and stealing hearts for years and years! Come cheer them on as they champion our community!

Smile big for the camera and watch in awe at his projections as resident VJ and photography Nick Day steals your soul.

Our parties generally are themed specifically each month— but for our anniversary party we bust that wide open and say come as however you please. Wanna dress up like a dinosaur? GREAT! Wanna come looking sexy af? GREAT! Wanna come in pajamas? GREAT! No dress code.

DADT IS A SAFE SPACE. Harassment or discrimination of any kind will not be tolerated. We all gotta watch out for each other, so if you see something say something to one of the DADT staff or one of the bar tenders or bouncers.
