Description

Peach! Your favorite LGBTQ+ event series that unifies and celebrates queer women & femme family has returned for 2019!

This year's series is "Peach Presents: The Legends," with Peach recreating legendary parties and gatherings that made the history books with a modern, queer flair and Peach’s unique flavor. The events include "PlayBOI," our rebellious and inclusive flip of the 1979 Playboy Roller Disco and Pajama Party; "Carnival," a Chicago-style recreation of the annual cultural celebration and global phenomenon; "Met Gala: Threads of a Riot," an evening inspired by the iconic annual event at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC but with a focus on the queer community's impact on the fashion world; and "Surrealist Dinner Party," an intimate dinner party based on the famous Rothschild Surrealist Ball in Paris.

First up...Peach Presents: PlayBOI Roller Disco & Pajama Party

The PlayBOI party Hugh wasn’t invited to – an iconic and edgy event newly seen through the queer gaze where our sexuality and individualistic community is celebrated. The original roller disco and pajama party wrapped up the 1970s by gathering musicians, performers and bikini clad models on roller skates jamming to disco hits at the Playboy Mansion in Beverly Hills. Peach revitalizes the party as an inclusive gathering where queer women and femmes of all shades, bodies and abilities can flaunt their authentic selves free from society’s beauty standards and gender roles.

Tito's Handmade Vodka:
Tito’s Handmade Vodka is produced in Austin at Texas’ oldest legal distillery. Love has always been at the heart of this company. Back in 1992, years before he sold his first case, Tito started making vodka to give as gifts. Its popularity quickly spread among his friends and family, and he soon became known as "the vodka guy." When Tito decided to really make a go of it in the spirits business, he started supporting charity events around Austin one bottle at a time, and gave away, by all reasonable standards, a ridiculous amount of vodka.
