Jai Ho Queer Dance Party in Uptown, Chicago (July 2009)
The following video footage shows the first Jai Ho at Big Chicks in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois. The date I have for this footage is July 26, 2009, but it may be off a few days. Jai Ho is a queer-friendly Bollywood dance party with performances by South Asian Drag Aunties and Uncles (Queens and Kings). Jai Ho continues to be put on by Trikone Chicago—an organization for queer South Asians and their family, friends, allies, and community. Performers include Lee Na-Moo and LaWhore Vagistan.
