They mostly include rich electronic production of women, trans and non-binary artists as they firmly believe that diversity and inclusiveness are necessary conditions for the development of any club culture.
We will be also hosting the first drag king that performed at Brussel's cabaret La Boule Rouge, Eclipse (FR/BE)! Eclipse recently started the tour around the Europe, and the audience in Rijeka will have the possibility to see his show as part of the Queer-UP! Party.

Queer-UP! Party is a part of this yearꞌs Smoqua festival that takes place in Rijeka from 23rd till 25th of May with the aim of promoting queer and feminist culture through art and activism.
