The Hard French Crew modernize, takeover, revamp, trick out, revive, and do up the outdoor afternoon dance party experience. This is a party for everyone – where drag queens mingle with lesbians, leather daddy’s soul dance with Cholas, sharps share hot dogs with activists, jocks make out with twinks, brown meets white meets purple meets gay guy meets ladies meets q and everyone leaves excited to come back next month. The party is DJ’d by resident and soul music wizards DJ Carnita and DJ Brown Amy and has featured some of the best soul DJs in SF and beyond including Primo (Oldie’s Night), Dick Vivian (Rooky Ricardo’s Records), DJ Bus Station John (Tubesteak Connection), John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig & the Angry Inch/Shortbus), DJ Shannon Action Slacks, DJ Lucky (Soul Party!) and more.
Hard French promises a truly unique experience with DJs on the patio, their infamous photo booth, tasty bbq, hard dancing and hard cruising. Hard French hit the road in 2010, throwing successful parties at Fabulosa Fest in Marin County, The East River Bar in Brooklyn, the Bring Your Own Queer Festival in Golden Gate Park and The Augusta House in Toronto, ON. Hard French has been named Best Place in SF to get cheap beer and BBQ by Broke Ass Stuart’s Guide to San Francisco, has been included in the BUTT Magazine San Francisco Fag Map and has been featured in SF Weekly, The San Francisco Bay Guardian, SFist.com, The Village Voice (NYC), MissionMission Blog, Daily Candy, The New Gay and All Shook Down.
