Best Dance Party: Glitter Thighs


Another sturdy arm of Baltimore’s multitudinous, queer-friendly music culture, the monthly dance party Glitter Thighs, which began this February, has become the all-inclusive event for LGBT and open-minded allies. In addition to providing a spirited space for partying, Glitter Thighs focuses on Baltimore-centric artists and DJs (Abdu Ali, the Dandy Vagabonds, DAZZLESTORM, the Deep in the Game crew, and more have appeared), drums up killer themes (June’s was pool party; July was “When I grow up I wanna be . . .”), and maintains a conscience. The first party raised money for FORCE, an activist-art duo intent on raising awareness of rape culture and promoting a culture of consent. And its organizers, Michael Farley (a CP contributor), Myloh Jackson, Rebecca Nagle, Sarah Tooley, and Victor Torres, are just plain ambitious: Last month, Glitter Thighs left its regular Station North locale to take place on a Tiki Barge in the Inner Harbor.
