Dykon is one of Dublin’s only strictly queer-women and non-binary parties, and they use their platform to create a space to celebrate their community. Tomorrow, they will celebrate two years of parties at Dubin’s Soundhouse, which will feature queer and non-binary guests and DJs on two floors, creating a haven for the queer and femme communities of Dublin City.

Dykon was founded on the concept of providing a comfortable safe haven for queer women and non-binary dancers. Although Dublin and Ireland have a number of queer clubs and nights, there aren’t many resources for queer women and non-binary dancers in the city.

“Dykon started because I saw a lack of spaces for people like me. Mainly I just thought Dublin needed a safe and fun space where queer women and anyone who didn’t “fit the mould” could freely express themselves.”

It can be increasingly difficult for queer women and non-binary people to find spaces that are specifically designed for them. Dublin’s queer clubs can be overcrowded, making it increasingly difficult to create safe spaces; Dykon provides a more structured and strict definition of what their space is and who it is intended for.

“Our ethos is to have fun, ask for consent, be respectful. It’s as simple as that. The fact that hundreds of people show up almost monthly for 2 years now proves how important a space like this is. We’re going to be starting monthly nights soon and can’t wait to grow our community.”
