Love is magic and we’ll be celebrating both as I Love the Burg St. Pete, Uniqorn, and OpenHouse ST. PETE welcome revelers to Pride on Edge, St. Pete’s first pop-up gay club experience for TWO NIGHTS ONLY.

This is not your typical pride party. The magical Uniqorn touch means an experience that’s never over the top, but hardly comfortable playing it safe.

We’ll be popping up on the fringes of downtown in one of its coolest up and coming neighborhoods, the Edge District. OPENHOUSE’s new and unique event space provides the perfect blank canvas for a weekend full of music, lights, dancing, drinks, DJs, and other colorful entertainment.

A portion of proceeds go to benefit Metro Wellness & Community Centers in support of their essential LGBTQ, transgender, and youth programs.

South Beach – A South Florida straight man is no longer welcome at a South Beach gay club.

Twist has been open since 1993 and has welcomed men and women — straight or gay. Rajpute, a former contestant on the TV show X-Factor, is a dancer. He said he frequents gay clubs, including Twist, because they play good dance music.
