Queer Fried Chicken
June 5, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Come and celebrate the release of Modist Brewing’s PRIDE Beer Deviant Minds and the launch of the nonprofit Deviant Minds, dedicated to supporting LGBTQIA folx with the hospitality & service industries here in Minnesota!
Deviant Minds is a Paloma cocktail-inspired Gose brewed with malted wheat, pilsner malt, 2-row barley malt, pink grapefruit, key lime, sea salt & blue agave nectar. Deviant Minds was brewed completely by LGBTQIA+ identifying folx from multiple breweries & distilleries here in Minnesota & Wisconsin.
The Burlesque Show
Host: Zaddy Eve
Performers: Emerald Eve & Del the Homosexual
Featuring Performances by Deeva Rose, Doña Pepa & Sweetpea
The Food: Fried chicken sandwiches & sides (vegetarian options available) from Blue Collar Supper Club will be available for purchase at the event.
During the entire day at Modist Brewing, $1 from every beer poured will benefit two local charities dedicated to supporting houseless youth in Minnesota; Avenues For Youth & Oasis for Youth. There will also be a free-will donation at the door of the event.
Deviant Minds is an LGBTQIA+ community with the goal of creating a collaborative network of queer-identifying individuals and creatives across the hospitality industries. We strive to build and cultivate a sense of belonging, identity, and worth in the industries where being openly queer in the workplace can be met with additional hardships. All this while continuously giving back to the LGBTQIA+ community for a more equitable future.
Emerald Eve, The Gem of Burlesque
A Twin cities based performer and member of The Vigilantease Collective, Emerald Eve heel clicked her way into the burlesque scene by winning the Nudie Nubies’ 2017 Ultimate Reveal Championship. While she may be pocket sized and compact, this fierce femme feminist is bursting through the patriarchy with her colorful personality and energetic performances.
Both the creator and producer of Bi-lesque, Emerald utilizes entertaining activism to promote bi-visibility, eliminate bierasure and biphobia, and fundraise for a local non profit: Bisexual Organizing Project. She is the gem of burlesque: Emerald Eve!
DTF in the Emerald City Bio (Duet)
Del the Funky Homosexual and Emerald Eve have joined forces to conjure up some unapologetically queer MAGIC. After meeting as members of The Vigilantease Collective, this pair found a heart for artivism and bold change-making in one another. Out of their combined passion comes stories intended to influence hearts and minds for good. Known for their energetically bold choreography and undeniable chemistry, they’ll show you what it means to play with fire. Don’t miss your favorite delectable duo! They’re tiny, delicious and seductively vicious.
