New Years Eve AFTERGLOW - the winter sister of our legendary pride party - is back again to offer you a glorious evening of revelry and celebration as we ring in 2020!

It’s been quite a year, and whatever trials or triumphs you’ve been through, we all deserve a beautiful moment to collectively celebrate what we’ve overcome and what we have before us.

At Comfort & Joy we love creating magical spaces to celebrate each person’s unique light and to offer you cathartic escape and revival, and are incredibly grateful for the privilege of providing our beloved community with a special New Year’s Eve experience for you to bask in euphoric bliss with your fellow queerdos until the break of dawn.

We can't wait to welcome you and celebrate the new year together!
