Sponsored by the LGBTQIA+ Section

Celebrate the fabulous, spiritual, and eclectic folklorist, Mickey Weems with a glittery, gay, DIY dance party! Mickey Weems is a graduate of the Ohio State University (2007), where he and his husband, Kevin Mason, founded and organized Qualia: Festival of Gay Folklife from 2002 to 2010 in Columbus, Ohio. Folklorist Mickey Weems died with medical assistance on March 20, 2023. We'll play a playlist curated by Weems himself on his Folkwise appearance, “Mickey Weems’ Last Party on Earth '' featuring absolutely danceable bangers (and a dance floor to celebrate!) Wear your most Mickey outfit and bring a decoration along to help create the party vibe! Volunteer to help with set-up by emailing Cassie at [email protected] with the subject line "Mickey's Dance Party Logistics." Learn more about Qualia:
