The Best Festival Style From LadyLand, Ladyfag’s Inaugural Queer Music Extravaganza
The Best Festival Style From LadyLand, Ladyfag’s Inaugural Queer Music Extravaganza

At this point in her career, Ladyfag is in a league of her own. The Toronto-born, Brooklyn-based promoter and queen of New York City nightlife has been throwing parties for almost a decade now, but her latest curatorial project—an unabashedly queer music festival appropriately titled LadyLand—found Lady taking her underground fashion-filled scene to much larger heights. The festival unfolded over a period of 11 hours at the massive Bushwick venue Brooklyn Mirage, and its programming stretched way beyond nightlife. During the early part of the evening, Lady’s Pop Souk marketplace assembled in the side room, so those so inclined could buy club-ready, over-the-top tulle garments or get a free LadyLand tattoo.

 

While LadyLand did feature a number of live performances—including a headlining set from rapper Eve and a Kill Bill–inspired performance from Aquaria, one of the current contestants on RuPaul’s Drag Race—it also bore the stamp of Ladyfag’s other house- and techno-centric parties with DJ sets from the likes of Total FreedomMike Servito, and experimental artist Sophie. The evening started off with Australian-raised DJ Amrit, who also took the stage as Tommy Genesis’s DJ later on in night. “When I moved to the city, she was a huge hero to me,” says Amrit of Ladyfag, whom she works with frequently. “She pioneered the wave for so many kids who struggled with their identity. So many kids hit me up and they’re like, ‘Oh, I saw you at this event. I come to the parties and I feel free. I feel like I can be myself.’ It’s a very special thing to be a part of.”

It started to rain a few hours into the festivities, which quite literally dampened the vibe a bit (the Brooklyn Mirage is primarily an outdoor venue), but people still showed up in full-on looks. From partygoers in pleated skirts (13 Reasons Whystar Tommy Dorfman pulled one off effortlessly) to dramatic onstage ensembles (Cupcakke’s sheer, over-the-shoulder top and rhinestone-adorned hot pants), everyone came out in expectedly flashy garments. In a weekend that was undoubtedly filled with countless moments of unrestrained self-expression, LadyLand became a hub that concentrated some of the most outsize styles of New York City Pride. Take a look at all of the best on- and offstage looks above.
