Ciężki Brokat Poland

Ciężki Brokat (translated as Heavy Glitter) is a Warsaw-based queer collective responsible for the official Warsaw Pride afterparty. Created in 2017, the monthly event was intended as a one-off safer space, but quickly amassed a community of queer and femme partygoers, drag and burlesque performers and DJs, otherwise disenfranchised in the binary club scene and bored with the stranglehold techno and house have on the mainstream clubs.  The events frequently have a performance part, with a slew of local drag, burlesque and vogue performers taking center stage. A queer, POC and femme booking policy ensures that only the underrepresented communities have their time to shine during Ciężki Brokat nights and the safer space rules in place benefit not only the community but also allies frequenting the night. The biggest undertaking by the collective – the annual Parada Dziwności (Queerness Parade), the official Warsaw Pride afterparty, welcomes tens of thousands of queers and allies every year, while fundraising for the next year’s Pride event. Founded by Aldona Relax (DJ and drag queen) and Avtomat (producer, DJ and graphic designer responsible for the night’s outlandish visual identity) and themsel in distress (DJ and performer), the event became a staple in the Warsaw scene and has since taken its singular approach to nightlife around the country.
