Raising money isn’t easy, which is why Brent Heinze, the organizer of Flame 2014: Colorado Queer Music & Art Festival, tried to think of creative ways to get people to donate money to LGBTQ youth programs. “I wanted to do something that related to the gay community, and there’s such a wide variety of gay art and music,” he says. “So I thought, let’s have a show with rock and rap and techno and trance pop.”
The festival will include live music, DJs, dancing, artists, designers, stylists, health information, food and vendors, with performances by the Tah Tahs, Princess, DJ Markie, DJ Narky Stares and many more. Heinze notes that proceeds will benefit Urban Peak, Rainbow Alley, the Gender Identity Center, Inside Out Youth Services and Denver PIQUE.
Head to Tracks Nightclub, 3500 Walnut Street, to enjoy the festival, which runs from noon to 9 p.m.; tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door. Visit lokusdorproductions.com for tickets and information.
