Monthly at The Hollywood Theatre. A new film series created with the goal of bringing a little more queer content to the big screen. Old/ new, serious/ cheesy, the films in this series will have 3 things in common; queer content, they’re not on Netflix* and nobody dies**. *Maybe a little wiggle room on this. **Ok, main characters don’t die, won’t promise more.
Monthly events/ various venus. Living lyfe in the moment. No planned sequence of events; not a drag show. A get yourself wet, dance-heavy party, w/ impromptu drag performances. You may hear a song and perform your own drag number. Basic: Club Kai-Kai is experimentation; nightlife, performance, and gender preference. Questions? We don’t have answers; just a space for you to Kai-Kai.
