LGBT dance party heads south

This weekend caps a month of Pride-related celebrations with the Pride Festival. And next Sunday, the annual Pride Parade brings together the LGBT community, allies, politicians, and party-goers to north Halsted Street, in the Heart of Boystown. But how is Pride celebrated on south Halsted and other parts of the city’s South Side? An event this Friday is aiming to create a safe and comfortable space in the Hyde Park to dance, congregate and share stories. Slo ‘Mo dance party aims to be that place. We talk with co-founders Kristen Kaza about why a space is needed outside the traditional gay friendly enclaves, and DJ Tess gives us a preview of the slow jams dancers will hear on Friday.
