Monthly Girl4Girl steams up Swank

by James Whitely - SGN Staff Writer

Girl4Girl
Last Saturday of every month
Swank Nightclub


It's been 12 years since Girl4Girl (G4G) began as a monthly party at the now defunct Catwalk Club in Pioneer Square. Now, G4G Seattle is likely the largest all women's Gay dance party in the country and a staple of the Pacific Northwest's Lesbian scene known for it's absolutely sexy go-go dancers.

"We were originally at the Catwalk Club for about six years," said Michelle Waye, owner of Girl4Girl Seattle. G4G now hosts parties and events all over Washington.

A few years back, Waye sold G4G to Chris Chappon, a former G4G go-go dancer.

"She took it mainstream," Waye told SGN. "She brought in a lot of big performers and held events at bigger places like the Showbox, and then she handed it back to me."

Waye has had G4G back now for seven months, and since then she's continued where Chappon left off, pouring tremendous amounts of energy into the promotional company, and with the largest all-girl dance night in the Seattle area and two huge events scheduled for Pride, the fruits of her labor are clear: G4G puts on the most flat-out sexy parties for girls who like girls.

"It's really exciting [to have G4G back]; we've recreated the whole Girl4Girl image and launched a whole clothing line," said Waye.

Currently, Girl4Girl happens on the last Saturday of every month at Swank Nightclub (24437 Russell Rd.) in Kent, Washington, just a 30-minute drive south from the hill.

The party generally brings out about 450-600 women every month.

G4G is a gender-exclusive party. Ten men (or anyone who identifies as a man) are allowed in per night and must be accompanied by a woman to enter. "[G4G] isn't about recreating a typical bar scene. It's about a fun, unique, inviting, and stimulating all-women's event," Chappon told a Curve Magazine reporter last year.

Aside from the visual stimulation (hot go-go dancers), the other big draw of the party is DJ Stacey Cooks, who helped start G4G. "She's super high-energy," said Waye. DJ Cooks has an uncanny ability to focus on the crowd and mix accordingly.

G4G strives to provide the most high-energy dance parties for women of all ages (21+) in the Pacific Northwest.

Waye's next party, Hush, is put on under a different production name, Original Glam, as it caters to both men and women. Hush, the premiere Gay and Lesbian circuit party of carnival clubbing, eccentric expression, and catwalk dance floors, is for "hedonistic party kings and kitten queens." Hush is on May 15 at the Snoqualmie Casino (37500 SE North Bend Way)
