Diamond Nightclub premieres Gay 18+ Dance Night
James Whitely - SGN Staff Writer

LGBT 18+ Dance Night
February 27
Diamond Nightclub


Vicious Entertainment, a Seattle-based Gay party promotional company, introduced their first weekend youth dance night on Saturday, February 27. Approximately 500 youths packed the Diamond Nightclub (332 5th Ave. N) for the LGBT 18+ Dance Night.

The party offered two levels, two dance floors, and two DJs spinning dance, hiphop, techno, top 40, and trance.

'We usually just promote for Downe Wednesdays at Neighbours,' said Nico Valle, 19, of Vicious. 'Me and the promoters got together and talked about how there's nowhere where they [the Lesbian and Gay under-21 crowd] can go on the weekends before 2 [a.m.].'

The crew of Vicious got together and tried to come up with a solution to what many say is a lack of 'Queer youth space.' Essentially, if you're under 21 and LGBT, you've got only a few options when it comes to clubbing.

However, the owner of Diamond offered up his space, and the party was born. Valle explained that the turnout for Vicious Saturday completely took the promoters by surprise. 'It was a real success compared to our Downe Wednesdays at Neighbours,' Valle told SGN.

There's no more waiting until the early hours of the morning for the under-21 LGBT crowd. From now on, doors open at 10 p.m. every Saturday for Vicious Saturdays at the Diamond.

The cover for Vicious Saturdays is $10 before 11 p.m. and $15 after. For more information, check out www.myspace.com/ viciousvip.
