Best Party Promoter for Every Body: Corinne Loperfido

As far as typical pairings go, naughtiness and "safety first" aren’t your average peanut butter & jelly, but together, they sure make being bad feel good. Illicit, risqué, and gender-f*cking party promoter Corinne Loperfido is all about striking the right balance for Austin’s queer and gender ambiguous audiences. Whether it’s a DIY strip club or a (self-identified) ladies-only dry dance party, Loperfido's carefree parties require a lot of care, and that manages to make them even more provocative. Gender be damned, she's not playing by any L or G rule book, but instead makes new space for the Q and all the other gaps in the LGBTQIAxyz (and then some) landscape that most of us didn’t even know we were missing.
