All Geeks Does Pride!
On Friday June 26th, the All Geeks party celebrates gay pride by bringing the rainbow to life within the galactic spectrum of Green Lantern! Hosted by Green Lantern Adam Guerino and joined by White, Black, Red, Orange, Yellow, Blue, Indigo and Violet Lanterns with a cosplay variety show of drag, burlesque and circus from Fox E Kim, Joe Lewis, Dizzy Lizzy, Alexis Bevels, Rob Racine, William Ranallo, Electra Cute, Betti Kyle and Pangea.
All Geeks is an all-inclusive series started by Outloud Chicago and Geeks Out in July 2014 as an all-inclusive cosplay party. No matter your gender, sexual orientation or ethnic background, all geeks are welcome.
Adam Guerino talks more about the show -
I did the show for the first time last July with the gay social group based in New York called Geeks Out.
It was never intended to be a regular show but it was so fun and such a great turn out, we ended up repeating it.
After a few shows under our belt, I decided to re-brand as All Geeks and focus on geek inclusion through booking diverse talent and working with other groups like Sugar Gamers.
Our cast members are Joe Lewis (who is also the artistic director,) Dizzy Lizzy, Fox E. Kim and myself. Together with rotating guests, we put on variety shows of drag, burlesque, circus, magic, comedy and more. We've done Star Wars vs. Star Trek, Video Games, Game of Thrones and Buffy--upcoming shows include Gay Pride on Friday June 26th where we're creating a high sci-fi rainbow within the Green Lantern universe and then our one year anniversary spectacular in July.
The Last All Geeks event was Buffy:The Vampire Slayer and it was fantastic. Check out the photo gallery from the Jam-packed event -
And here's some pictures from my favorite one so far in the series of events from All Geeks - The Classics!
There was Ghostbusters, Barbarella, The Fifth Element, and an awesome back-to-back performance on Rocky Horror Picture Show!
You wouldn't want to miss the great perfromances and win cool prizes!
So don't forget, wear your cosplay with this month's theme :)
