Booty Rex sells out the Black Cat because of the deep roots of the party and performers in the local queer communities, the excellent mix of music from close to home to around the world, and our emphasis on the values of enthusiastic consent and respect for each others’ booties, while rejecting racism, anti-blackness, misogyny, transphobia, ableism, classism, and body-shaming.

 

Booty Rex evolved in the late ‘00s, after the DJs and party people of She.Rex and Anthology of Booty (throwing the Backdoor party at the time) teamed up for a mega night of D.C. Pride revelry. Well over a decade later, Booty Rex has outlived its parent parties, and throngs the dancefloor of the Black Cat with gaiety. She.Rex was thrown by DJs Junebullet, C.Rush, and Coach Vee at Chief Ike’s. The Anthology of Booty DJ crew is DJs Natty Boom, mothersheister, Kristy la rAt, bent, and Indanile. Along with a bevy of special guests, Wannabe DJ and MC Zombie have become mainstays of Booty Rex. We believe that dancing and revelry are acts of powerful resistance in the face of current and historical attacks on our communities.
