Today's bonus featured event: Join the party at Tracks, with a ton of B.A.D. girls and their friends
If you've ever wanted to party with 2,000 lesbians, this is your night. Babes Around Denver is celebrating the sixth anniversary of its monthly First Friday party. "We started it in 2003. It started out with a hundred people and it's grown to 2,000. It's been great.," says organizer Dede Frain. "Although its primarily a women's event, all LGBT and straight allies are welcome. It's an all-inclusive event. Everybody is welcome and many, many friends and families of the women that attend the event also go and have a great time."
Revelers will enjoy the sounds of resident DJ Trina J, plus the sounds of DJ Shannon and DJ Markie, all playing a variety of formats from country to disco to hip-hop. "DJ Trina J is a triple threat," Frain promises. "She can do country, she can do Motown and she can do all the top 40 and hip-hop." In addition, the Babes in Toyland dancers will be busting their moves, plus a Rock Band and SingStar room set up for interactive musical fun -- and reality TV star Briana Stockton of Bravo's Workout will provide the celebrity glitz.
The party starts at 6 p.m. at Tracks, 3500 Walnut Street. Admission is $7 and a portion of the door goes to the Gay and Lesbian Task Force (DJ Trina J also donates her DJ fee to the Humane Society). For more info, visit www.babesaroundenver.com.
