Join us just blocks away from the St. Pete Pride Parade at one of the city’s hidden gems, Station House, for a Pride Rooftop Disco featuring Chicago and New York originals Mystic Bill and Richard Vasquez alongside Salt Lake City’s Jesse Walker and host Adriana Sparkle. These talents combined have worked with Paradise Garage’s Larry Levan, performed alongside Crystal Waters, held the booth at the legendary Studio 54, and even DJ’d a Winter Olympics. Local artists Melanie Posner and Jerry Cahill have curated a talented group of Tampa Bay’s brightest and most colorful visual artists to showcase their work. Over 15 LGTBQ+ artists and allies’ work will be open to the public on the 2nd floor, with other pieces displayed throughout the building. This daytime affair is the perfect pre-party for the parade. Afterwards, the night continues with dinner, drinks, and dancing at Ichicoro Ane.
