For the second year in a row Her HRC DC and the Ladies of LURe are proud to host a DJ battle of top lesbian DJs. The event will be held this Sunday February 17th, at Town Dancebotique; doors open at 8pm (7pm for VIP ticket holders).
This year they are kicking it up a notch by expanding to the full mid-Atlantic region bringing in DJ Leah V from Boston and DJ K.Ash from Philadelphia; as well as the local hits from 2012 DJ Rosie and DJ MIM making it truly an I-95 Showdown! Fans will be able to vote for their favorite DJ, enter for a chance to win thousands of dollars in raffle prizes, and mingle with the ladies of DC.
For the past 3 years women in the DC area have come together under one roof to celebrate and reach further for equality. We are of different backgrounds, of different ages, of different political beliefs we are united under one common goal: the goal of full equality for all LGBT people. “Last year Her HRC DC had the most diversity we’ve ever seen, there were people as young as 21 and as old as 60; the full spectrum of lesbian, bisexual and transgender people, and even a few gay men” said Megan McKellar, Membership Outreach co-chair for the DC area.
The I-95 Showdown is part of the larger Her HRC Program whose mission it is to gather women to both celebrate and build a greater sense of community while learning about the importance of engaging in the LGBT civil rights movement. This program expands and diversifies HRC’s membership through events hosted across the country towards the beginning of each calendar year. From live performances to comedy to film screenings to everything in between, each market’s unique programming is tailored to their community. Attended by over 5,000 women annually this year, HRC anticipates between 20-25 events to take place in communities across America.
