I only wanted something else to do but hang around…

I still have Pet Shop Boys songs in my head ofter their recent concert.  I often say that living in Kitsap County we have to make our own fun.  Red Star is the third version of a gay night in Bremerton that I have been involved with over the years that I’ve lived here.  The first was Paragon and it was held at the Eagles.  Started when a couple had a commitment ceremony reception and thought they should do it more often.  The next was NightOut which was started to build community and provide opportunities to do HIV prevention work.  Red Star was started to provide a quality club night.  Originally on Callow until G-Style Knights abruptly closed and it too moved to the Eagles.  Our first night had 80 people attend.   Last month at our first ever White Party we had 200 – it was our second busiest night ever.  Second only to this year’s Pride Party. Oh, and be sure to check out the White Party pictures on our Facebook page.   I couldn’t be happier with the support that the community has for this event.  It’s alot of hard work from volunteers.  We work hard to do right by you.  We have given thousands of dollars back to the community.  Thanks to all of you. I only wanted something else to do but hang around…

Come make some fun with us.  We’re at the Bremerton Eagles this Friday night at 9pm.  Come early – the Eagles serves Steak dinners downstairs and it’s open to the public.  Don’t forget that if it’s too crowded or noisy upstairs you can sneak downstairs for a bit.

See you then – Michael

New Party of a New Year

The New Red StarFebruary 1st was a great night. Even though we had only announced the party on Tuesday of that week we had a solid turnout of 60.  Our average last year was 100 with lows of 80 and highs of 140.  We’ll get the numbers back up with some word of mouth.  We didn’t even have a DJ but we played some great music people enjoyed listening and danced the night away.We gave out a bunch of signature ball caps and t-shirts. The space looked great, we came up with some really creative ideas to make the large ballroom seem more intimate and club-like and less Dancing with the Stars. It’s all about the lighting and yards and yards of fabric. Check out the pictures to get a feel of what it was like if you could not make it. Continue reading “New Party of a New Year”

We’re Back!

We’ve really been searching for a new location that would best suite everyone’s needs. We wanted a place that we had to ourselves so that people could feel comfortable. Not everyone is completely “out” especially our military friends. We have worked out an arrangement with the Eagles facility in downtown Bremerton. Continue reading “We’re Back!”
