The new nightlife event initiative sets to provide a safespace and dancefloor for the queer community of River North and Chicago overall. By embracing roots of LGBTQIA culture in the 60’s/70’s/80’s House, Ball, and Discotheque scene, this programming will create a pop culture, fashion, and nightlife phenomenon for the influential disco culture that has become extremely prevalent in present day queer nightlife.

We're also partnering with for La BOUM meaning attendees can make direct donations upon entry at the door to benefit the organization.

Project Fierce Chicago seeks to create affirming transitional housing for LGTBQIA+ youth in Chicago that is responsive to the needs of young people. By mobilizing our communities, we provide pathways to independence.

La BOUM is produced by local queer influencer @walterofchicago who will also host each event with Andrew Sena over the duration of the next six months. For more information, visit

People of any color, size, body type, gender, gender expression(s), and sexual orientation are welcome.
