NEVER SURRENDER: Magical Transformations

Never Surrender is starting the new year by taking on evil in the name of love and justice!

A Secret Location in Downtown Manhattan

NEVER SURRENDER is a recurring party that has taken several forms over several years, both live and virtual. We returned to live events in Spring 2022 and are now gathering 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.


Have you ever secretly dreamed about having the power of the moon so you could fight monsters? Or maybe you wished you were the terrifying aliens invading Earth instead? This party is all about transforming into your ultimate magical self, whether that be someone fighting for the future of the planet or a villain looking to sow chaos and destruction. Come in your best sailor suit complete with sparkly gems or break out the leather, lace, and an intimidating cape. You get to choose which side you’re on and what your powers will be.
