We're welcoming every intersection of our community to Pride or Die, a Horror-themed event celebrating LGBTQIA+ identity. On Friday, June 18th from 5pm - 9:30pm, join us at viral snack-shop Iced Above in Uptown Whittier, CA (just blocks from filming locations of movies like Hocus Pocus and tv shows like True Blood.)
Guests will be treated to live Scaryoke, an exclusive menu of snacks and drinks, limited-edition merchandise, and special appearances from Director Gigi Saul Guerrero and Drag Queen Jerrica - all in a nightmare-fueled speakeasy.
The most important part is you! Bring your Pride or Die, whether it be your friends, significant other, or family who you can be proud to enjoy Horror with everyday. See you there!
