Peach! Your favorite event series that celebrates ALL LGBTQ+ women & femme family has returned for 2018. Peach Presents the 2018 4-event series…’The Elements’ (Air, Water, Earth, & Fire). Join us as we explore the resilient spirit, beauty, and power of our queer community through our interpretation of the elements.
Now it's time to get wet with "Water"!
We are swimming over to Whiskey Business rooftop to end Pride Month with a moist, sexy day party. You already know to expect dripping art installations curated by the talented Chris Tuttle, some music to slide to, and something tasty to sip on. Dress Code? Come through Drip Drip. Interpret that how you’d like.
Brace yourself to get sweaty from a B2B set from the talented DJ Gemini Jones & DJ Cut Cuz! As always, this wavy rooftop party will be hosted by your main peaches Hannah Kate, Morgan Higgins, and Bre Berry.
Trying to brunch? We got you! Order from our cute curated food menu before diving into day drinking. Full bar available, but curated cocktails will be available all day to keep you “hydrated” and dancing! We recommend sipping on some Tito’s Handmade Vodka though and here’s why…with EACH Tito’s Handmade Vodka drink purchased $5 will be DONATED to United Way of Genesee County/Flint Water Fund (up to $1,000!)! Yes…drinking Tito’s vodka = a stack to Flint Water Fund. *Sips*

Who is involved?
Peach: A national event brand for LGBT & queer women and femmes born & raised in Chicago. Peach’s successful inaugural series, 'Peaches through The Ages', launched April 21, 2017 in partnership with Tito's Handmade Vodka.
Black Thread Agency:
Black Thread Agency, a culture marketing/events company, was founded on a simple premise: enabling passionate people to produce memorable events. With a core team composed of people from diverse backgrounds, Black Thread serves as the connecting thread between the experimental and the established. By assigning staff to projects personalized around their passions, Black Thread is committed to building authentic experiences for all those involved, from participants to sponsors. We believe in the power of event curation, and the value it can add to both lives and a brand’s staying power. By keeping a pulse on the culture, Black Thread is dedicated to styling spaces and collectives to help create community and togetherness.
Tito's Handmade Vodka:
Tito’s Handmade Vodka is produced in Austin at Texas’ oldest legal distillery. Love has always been at the heart of this company. Back in 1992, years before he sold his first case, Tito started making vodka to give as gifts. Its popularity quickly spread among his friends and family, and he soon became known as "the vodka guy." When Tito decided to really make a go of it in the spirits business, he started supporting charity events around Austin one bottle at a time, and gave away, by all reasonable standards, a ridiculous amount of vodka.
Free Write Sound & Vision:
Free Write Sound & Vision provides full-service sound reinforcement and production support for all sizes and styles of events. Our expert project managers and technicians work closely with our partners to execute their vision and offer world-class experiences for their audiences. Unlike similar services, Free Write S&V is committed to social justice and employment equity in the arts industry. We hire and train alumni of Free Write Arts & Literacy and other young, primarily African American and Latinx adults with barriers to employment. We then support them as they make their way into an arts industry that is in need of a diverse, young workforce.
