People might give Wilton Manors all the credit as the center of gay cheer and merrymaking in South Florida, but years ago, Lake Worth was voted the most gay-friendly city of its size. And before Lake Worths Propaganda became a hotbed of indie rock and hipsterlicious schmoozing, it was one of the premier gay clubs in the area. Now Propaganda will host its first lesbian night, Sapphic Thursday,
named for the famed poet and lady lover Sappho. The female bespectacled duo the State Of, consisting of Steph Taylor and Nabedi Orsorio, will open the night playing their signature breathy pop that is dark, minimalist, and incorporates electronica stylings to its percussive approach. Expect covers of the Cure and the Bangles. Rounding out the creative draw will be T-shirt designer Amy Love, who sells shirts that urge you to wear your broken heart or happy heart on your sleeve. Bonnie Riots Fern E. will rock the ones and twos, making sure the dance floor helps you forget that broken heart, whether its on your sleeve or not. Oh, if thats not enough grrrly bonding and empowerment, if you get there before 11 p.m., enjoy a free aborted fetus shot.
Sapphic Thursday starts at 8:30 p.m. at Propaganda, located at 6 S. J St. in Lake Worth. Admission costs $5. Visit propagandalw.com.
