The social gathering group Tampa Bay Lesbians, in conjunction with Project No Labels, has announced a new happy hour at Subcentral in the Iberian Rooster geared toward empowering women.

UndHERground is every Wednesday with a three-month series of talent contests,” the group’s press release reads. “Join us in a below ground speakeasy style setting while spoken word artists speak their truths, burlesque performers twirl their pasties, singers and drag kings compete for prizes while local celebrity judges choose the winners and take part in spotlight performances – all in the name of celebrating and empowering women!”

The launch party will feature hostess Mayven Missbehavin’, music from area DJ Ace Vedo and “an eclectic mix of other performers,” the group advises. They further note that winners of singing, drag and spoken word contests will receive “cash, prizes, mentorships with some of Tampa Bay’s most creative talent, media coverage and more.”

“Aside from the Honey Pot, there’s not weekly events tailored to the needs of 21 and up lesbians in Tampa Bay,” Project No Labels founder Claire Elisan says. “A happy hour geared toward networking, socializing in a safe environment versus the online realm and highlighting local artists stimulates the evening and provides guests with a meaningful and authentic experience.”

The first UndHERground gathering will be held on Feb. 28 from 7 p.m. until midnight. The event’s cover charge is $5 prior to 8 p.m. and drinks will be 50 percent off.
