Get in, dolls, we’re doin’ hot goth bimbo shit. 

We see a pink door and we wanna paint it black. Black like shiny boots and stiletto pumps. Black like mascara running down your cheeks. Black like coffee at midnight. Black like whips and lips and the void of space and the hole in your soul. Black like the future. 

Pink like Barbie’s DreamCar riding off to the plastic sunset. Pink like a latex revolution. Pink like the tongue that goes down, maybe. Pink like the lips around your, maybe. Pink like the skin that’s under, baby. Pink where it’s deepest inside, crazy. 

Wear your colors and get your ass to The Black & Pink Ball.


NEVER SURRENDER is a recurring party that has taken several forms over several years, both live and virtual. We gather every other month as long as desire and circumstance permit.
We are a place to play, to feel safe, and to reconnect. We are a chill space for good times with good people. We are a party and a protest, a ritual and a revel. We are a circle of love spitting naked defiance at a world in crisis.
Make loud noises. Leave lipstick traces. Make memories. Talk, play, show off, or just be a witness to the magic. Come as whatever gender you are, wear whatever makes you happy.

We are trying out a new and exciting space this time, with an open floor and lots of furniture to have fun with! More beds, more space, and more time to use them. We’re staying up past midnight this time around, hotties. 


At 7:45 we kick off the welcome circle and get acquainted, so you don’t want to miss it. It’s an opportunity to introduce yourself, share your intentions, and put your hopes out there. Then we set the scene: chat, exchange saucy compliments, dance, be bravely social. Get close, get friendly, maybe try out something new. There’s no pressure to do anything other than what feels right for you.


BYOB; sodas and snacks will be provided.

Please know your limits and take a break and/or ask for help if you become too intoxicated to play safely or give consent deliberately. Be aware of your compromised abilities when undertaking activities, particularly new to you or your partners.

I wanna fall through the stars
Getting lost in the dark is my favorite part.
