Weekend Party Picks: May 17 - 19

party dyke queer lesbian nightlife events berlin weekend May

Look I know what your thinking: "it's been a long week. I should be at home having a pants-less nap on my beanbag." But there's better places to be pantsless. Or pantsful for that matter. But come on, it's Berlin, live a little.

Veselka X Dissident


Folks, this might be the dance of the weekend. It's like I've died and gone to heaven and this lineup is the row of angels meeting me at the pearly gates. Audrey Danza, Carly Zeng, Cora, Marie Malarie, Newa... It's going to be fire. I am especially excited to see Newa back in Berlin. Dissident brings in a queer and very sweet crowd. This weekend they're teaming up with Ukrainian collective Veselka (there's no rainbow without yellow and blue) so it's also a fundraiser. Get out and support.

Berghain Panorama Bar

Lighting up Pano this IDAHOBIT (International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia—diversion: anyone else hate the word Idaho being in that?), we have Homodrop dropping the grooviest electro, acid, and house music. After 10 years of queer parties, emphasizing community and solidarity, this Panorama Bar takeover should be a night to look forward to. MAZE on decks might be one to look out for.

From the femmes and the thems, here comes a big night of hard techno, hardgroove, rave and acid. This is a new one on my radar, but I have very high hopes. In a low-key locale, a high energy intimate kind of night is the vibe I foresee.

Riot Kitchen

Secret Location

A queer party Riot originating in the wake of Orlando massacre, RIOT symbolizes resistance against intolerance. Because queer existance is resistance and queer parties; all the more so. From a small party by Brazilian expats, RIOT endured through the pandemic and now collaborates with Moscow collective Popoff Kitchen in support of queer artists fleeing persecution in Russia and promoting a safe environment for the queer community in Berlin. Another new party on my books, but we have Shankstasy (of llecken acclaim) playing, and they don't disappoint.

Magic Dyke* 2nd Dyke*iversary

Säälchen Holzmarktstraße 25

A strip show that asks: what if Magic Mike was a hot dyke* rather than a dude-bro who looks like a turnip? And yes, I also pretended to be into him in high school—but speaking of teenage preoccupations: the rugby team (the queer rugby team); the Bruisers are collaborating. On what? I don't know. I just know it's time to enter the scrum to find a ticket. Although it might be for the best if I lose given that my obsession with guest/drag star Majic Dyke could probably get me put on a list. It'll be a hell of a show and when it's over we have an after-party featuring 3 fab DJs and the legendary Pillow Palace...

Secret Location

It is time for Slime, and I am always looking forward to it because this is the sweetest wee party in town. Residents Chrispy, DJ BONEY S and zikade will be joined by Ida Bux and AKA Thesaur, and accompanied by our beloved drag host Raki Solale, for a night to delight. I have said it once and I'll say it again; it's a party where each of us can feel safe and seen. There's a lot of love going into this one.

Golosa . eXtraVaGanZa


Last but not least, we have Golosa, now bringing a big night to the floors of OXI. Big range of genres; house, techno, trance... you want it you, got it. Golosa never fails on delivering some top-sounds for queer ears of all tastes, but keep 'em peeled for ELECTROSEXUAL and Hanaby, my little birds tell me good things.
