These Burlesque performers really got our “circulation” going at our ALA party! Thanks to Phoenix Bar and Lounge, karaoke hostess Shiela Del Monte, emcee Billey Bibliographic Control, and the folks at the Librarian Wardrobe photobooth for making this a great party! Your photobooth pics have been tweeted by magpielibrarian with hashtags  

Together, we raised $1,000 for the Burlesque Hall of Fame, and had a great time doing it! Meanwhile, the gears are already turning for another great party next year in San Francisco!

Thanks to everyone who came out to Que(e)ry: OVERDUE on Saturday to party with us! Thanks also to accident report and the warm leatherettes, DJ Shomi Noise, DJ Shade Parade, Rique Shaw, Ariel Italic, Billy Bibliographic Control, and everyone at the Cake Shop for a great time!

Even head-to-head with our friends at Hey Queen! we had a good crowd and raised some funds for the Bureau of General Services—Queer Division and the Pop-Up Museum of Queer History, and your support is greatly appreciated.

The Bureau is still seeking a permanent home, and in the meantime you can visit them at their pop-up shop at the Cage to buy some books, and you can still donate online here.

The Pop-Up Museum’s show, On the (Queer) Waterfront: Brooklyn Histories opens October 5 with a Queer History Block Party in DUMBO. Great tours, workshops on archiving and oral history, and more…plus Que(e)ry will be there! See a full schedule of events, and donate here!

Finally, stay tuned for pictures from Saturday, and for news on our next party!

The Que(e)ry Librarians

We&#8217;re excited for our first time at the Cake Shop (152 Ludlow St. New York) and our first time benefitting two great organizations: the Bureau of General Services&#8212;Queer Division, a queer cultural center, bookstore, and event space, who are currently fundraising for a permanent location after a successful year at the Strange Loop Gallery; and the Pop-Up Museum of Queer History, who have an upcoming exhibition titled HomoEconomics: LGBTQ histories of the Brooklyn Waterfront.

Que(e)ry Chicago Epilogue

Thanks for coming out to Que(e)ry: Leather Bound at ALA last week! Together, we raised nearly $1,200 for the Leather Archives and the Critical Fierceness Grant.image

First, a huge, huge round of applause to the Continental Lounge in Chicago for opening their doors for us at the very last minute, and all of our fantastic performers, volunteers, and attendees for taking the change in stride and helping get the word out. We couldn’t have done it without you.

Thanks to Eye Spy Optical, Early to Bed, G Boutique, the Leather Archives & Museum, and the Pleasure Chest for their sexy raffle prize donations! We hope you’ll support these local Chicago businesses and organizations.

Thanks to Mars for the great photos, which you can check out on Facebook.

And three cheers for Big Dipper, Tamale, and our DJs and gogos!

Finally, congrats to the winner of the librarian realness contest, our new reigning Mx. Que(e)ry! (pictured above)
