Flappers and Dappers Prohibition Party at the Rendezvous

Jay Gatsby, eat your Jazz Age heart out. On 25 January, Sarah St. Albin, Emily McVicker, and Scarlet Parke brought West Egg to Seattle with their Flappers and Dappers Prohibition Party at the Rendezvous in Belltown. The enthusiasm was high, the costumes were fabulous, and for a few hours the 20s roared. But it wasn't all Prohibition-era hedonism. The event also raised awareness and funds for Legal Voice.

Legal Voice is a progressive feminist organization using the power of the law to make change in the Northwest. We use that power structure to dismantle sexism and oppression, specifically advocating for our region’s most marginalized communities: women of color, lesbians, transgender and gender-nonconforming people, immigrants, people with disabilities, low-income women, and others affected by gender oppression and injustice.

Let's hope this becomes an annual event. That would give us all plenty of time to perfect the Charleston. If you see Emily McVicker at a show, she may be willing to give you a few tips. Here are some photos from the evening.
