Event description
Crumpet Tea Dance 3.0: A Sunday afternoon dance and gathering for QTIBIPOC, BGILPPTT32QQ, LGBTQ2SIA+ community members and their allies.

About this Event

Crumpet is a re-make, re-boot and revisioning of the phenomenon of the Sunday afternoon Tea Dance/T-Dance. A Tea Dance/T-Dance is a social gathering born in the days when it was illegal for persons of the same gender to dance with each other and for venues to “knowingly sell alcohol to homosexuals”. As the LGBTQ2SIA+ fought back and won certain freedoms and enabled the creation of space for queer expression the meaning of Tea Dance changed with the times. After the stonewall riots and the rise of disco “Going to Tea” became the social event of the week; a relaxing, joyful Sunday afternoon with friends and eating, drinking and dancing to the most luscious and lively music of the day.

Crumpet is your invitation to

  • Connect the way community used to do it.
  • Connect in a shared physical space that is our space; a space created for us as individuals and by us as a community.
  • Feel and enjoy shared experience of dancing together whether it be in your own zone, in the Soul Train line or executing the weekly line dance. Enjoy face-to-face interactions with other QTIBIPOC, LGBTQ2SIA+, queers and their friends
