Chicago’s QUEEN, Polyglamorous and As You Like It join forces to support the return of the legendary queer community hub The Stud. Since its inception in 1966, The Stud has been a sanctuary the alternative side of San Francisco’s queer community, and the years since its closure have left a void.

QUEEN! is an underground house + disco party weekly at Chicago’s legendary nightclub Smart Bar featuring local luminaries Derrick Carter, Michael Serafini and Shaun J. Wright.

In their own words — “Looks STRONGLY encouraged.”

Proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to The Stud’s next chapter.

The Stud reopened in April. It filled two adjoining buildings at 1123-1125 Folsom, in the heart of San Francisco’s Leather District. Stay tuned for more details on The Stud’s Instagram @thestudsf. Dance with us.


Derrick Carter is widely acknowledged as one of the better DJs of the world. With innovative productions, flawless technical skills and an effortlessly joyful attitude of rocking a crowd, his influence has infiltrated throughout the spectrum of dance music. Although known as one of the key players of Chicago’s house music wave in the ’90s, Derrick began DJ’ing at the age of nine, spinning disco and funk records at family reunions. he freely travels outside standard club tastes, incorporating old-school disco, soul, jazz, new wave, and whatever else catches his fancy.

Michael Serafini first got his start in Chicago nightlife in the 80’s working for Berlin nightclub as a video jockey and remixer. Under the mentorship of close friends Terri Bristol and Ralphi Rosario, Michael began deejaying regularly in the early 90’s. Shortly after, he took up a position at one of Chicago house’s most famous institutions, Gramaphone Records. As his experience grew, so did his reputation, later landing a residency at Boom Boom Room, then the city’s longest running and well known house night. In 2007, Serafini took over ownership of Gramaphone Records which he still operates today. His current residency is for the weekly Sunday party, Queen!

Born and raised in West suburban Chicagoland, Shaun J. Wright spent most of their teen years immersed in the sounds of house music. Their love for dance music expanded throughout their high school years as they partook in the underground dance scene now globally known as Juke. While in undergrad at Morehouse College in Atlanta, they developed their skills as a dancer/voguer in professional dance companies and the ballroom scene. After acquiring an MA Fashion Curation, from the London College of Fashion, Wright enjoyed an active career in fashion in New York City. That is where they met Andrew Butler, founder of Hercules and Love Affair, and began a whirlwind collaboration with the ensemble as a vocalist. Currently, Wright is exhilarating dance floors worldwide as a dj and is featured on several acclaimed releases with Stereogamous, Bell Boys, Bobmo, Kiki, Alinka, and System of Survival with more stellar collaborations on the horizon.
