dapperQ’s 10 Year Anniversary Party at Official World Pride!

Ten years ago this year, dapperQ, one of the world’s most widely read queer style digital magazines, went live on the web. dapperQ is PROUD to commemorate this important event with a STONEWALL50 WorldPride Bash in collaboration with TEAZE, an inclusive LGBTQIA+ party where all proud bodies are welcome.

NYC Pride’s TEAZE presented by T-Mobile and in partnership with dapperQ, hosted by Jazzmyne Jay and AmbersCloset, is an inclusive LGBTQIA+ party celebrating our diverse community.



At this year’s TEAZE, you’ll get to experience five of NYC’s best year-round queer parties all under one roof for WorldPride. And now after TEAZE, you’ll have a few more parties to attend beyond Pride Month.

TEAZE and dapperQ are proud to present:
