Frank Ocean Opening Gay Club In New York Tonight.
And the theme is genius
Frank Ocean is debuting a new club night in New York tomorrow (October 17th) called PrEP+. Named after the HIV prevention drug, the club night is presented by Blonded. Notably, the flyer for PrEP+ says 'THE WORLD' at the bottom, possibly a reference to the influential and radical queer nightclub of the same name in Manhattan's East Village that closed in 1991.
According to a press statement "PrEP+ is the first in a series of nights; an ongoing safe space made to bring people together and dance. PrEP+ will welcome globally celebrated DJs. PrEP+ welcomes everyone." The release notes that the event is called PrEP+ in homage to to New York's 80s and 90s club scene, and what it could have been if PrEP had been invented in that era. According to the post, "Ticket links have been distributed" and the venue will be announced on the night of the event. No photos or videos are allowed in the venue, consent is mandatory, and no racism, homophobia, transphobia, sexism, ableism, or discrimination in any form will be tolerated.
