Dublin’s newest club night Honeypot, which is ran by and for gay girls, announce their debut show which is due to take place on July 15th at Soundhouse. Mercorn and Rhyzine complete the line-up for the evening.
HONEYPOT is a “club night and community for gay girls and friends” founded by Emma Murphy and Kerry Mahony. The night was borne out of a desire to bring more diversity to Dublin’s dancefloors by supporting female, non-binary and LGBTQ+ DJs. Their parties will play electronic music across different genres and styles depending on the night.
On their door policy, the founders say: “HONEYPOT operates on an ethos of inclusivity, not exclusivity. That means that while it’s primarily a night for gay and queer women, we want everyone to feel welcome, including allies or people who are questioning. We want to create a new space for girls, gays, queer people and everyone in between to dance, be free and have fun. Because of that, we ask everyone to follow our values of kindness, respect and community.”
The launch party, titled ‘HONEYPOT 001: Spread Your Wings’, will be headlined by Mercorn. The Dublin native is a founding member of Skin&Blister Collective and a champion for diversity in Dublin nightlife, with expertise across 90’s trance, acid and progressive house.
Opening the party is the co-founder of HONEYPOT, Rhyzine. The Dublin-based DJ will be playing percussive and high-energy tunes to get the party started.
On their opening night, Emma and Kerry say: “Throughout our six years living in Dublin, we’ve always noticed a gap in electronic nights ran by and for gay women. We want HONEYPOT to bring the community together in the best way we know how, by dancing. We are so excited to throw our launch party at The Sound House, a venue known for supporting brilliant queer nights.”
