After last year’s Pride Rooftop Disco, we’re back with another colorful and vibrant celebration of dance music’s LGBTQ+ roots during St. Pete Pride weekend, Florida’s largest LGBT Pride celebration. This year we’ve invited special guest LEM from Mood II Swing, one of house music’s greatest duos. As a songwriter, Lem Springsteen worked heavily in the studio with Masters at Work and was behind radio and club hits like Ultra Nate’s “Free,” Barbara Tucker’s “Beautiful People,” and many other productions that would go on to be classic DJ favorites. Florida’s original house and techno DJ, Manny Cuevas, will round out the lineup alongside resident Austen van der Bleek. Join us after the parade to dance the night away at the Sunshine City’s newest nightclub, Morph.
