ABOUT SHIPS: The dance party happens once a month, every third thursday, and functions both as a benefit and a community organizer. Each party raises money for a different organization, campaign, movement or indvidual(s) that we know to be in need.

hi friends,
due to circumstances beyond our control, ships in the night will be moved from the gangway this thursday to the lexington on 19th St. (between Valencia and Mission). we will be dancing to the sounds of dj's jean jamz and black, as well as doing some fundraising to help out dj durt after her back surgery. please join all yr favorite homos 10pm, 21+, and thanks to the lexington for opening its doors to us.
the gangway is dealing with neighbors' sound complaints and has had to cancel all of its dance parties for a little while. ships in the night will continue on and is searching for a new home.
please stay in touch and check updates on the website, or contact shipsinthanight [at] for more information. if you have tips for spaces for an intimate queer dance party that's always a benefit for radical causes, get in touch. if you wanna dj, or want to have a benefit for your group or a particular cause, email us!
thanks for the support and see you on the dance floor!
