JP Block Party

General Information

Boston Pride and Kristen Porter Presents (Dyke Night® & The List: Boston’s Queer Agenda) bring you the 2018 JP Block party. What can you expect? Over 2,000 LGBTQ folk and friends of all ages take over Perkins Street for a fun filled outdoor party with several cash bars (21+ to drink), food, drag, dogs and dancing!

Our first hour (2 pm- 3 pm) will feature family friendly throwbacks from the 60s/70s/80s courtesy of DJ Maryalice. Fun for kids big and small at the Kidz Corner with games, face painting, and dress up selfie booth!

Kristen Porter’s beloved 6th Annual Divas, Dogs & Drag Show (3 pm) features available-for-adoption rescue dogs showcased by drag performances. We welcome back emcee and performer Sapphira Cristal, Miss Gay NY of USofA and former Queen of Boston Pride. Check out our Facebook event page for photos/bios on drag performers in the show and the dogs who will be showcased.

After the show, the street morphs into one giant dance floor with DJ L’Duke (LeahV) until 8 pm. Her signature open format mixing and seamless genre-blending sets have won her the Boston Music Awards “DJ Artist of the Year” and Improper Bostonian’s “Boston’s Best DJ.” And get ready to be wowed by a special live performance by New Fame (6 pm)- a female hip-hop/soul duo based in Vietnam touring worldwide.
