Slo 'Mo's annual queer utopia Pride party, Paradise, returned this year with the theme Floral Formal. Sponsored by Howard Brown Health, the event brought flower power to Michelle's Ballroom and was hosted by Tristen Seven, Justin Ignatius Mitchell, Darling Shear and Elijah McKinnon. The evening featured an open bar of botanically inspired cocktails by Lost Lake, recognised by Saveur as One of the World's Best Bars, and microbrews from Hopewell Brewing Company. Slo 'Mo's resident vibe curator Audio Jack was joined by Party Noire's Hey Rae Chardonnay and performances by Darling Shear. A custom photobooth by Karmen Elaine and installations by South Social and Home adorned the party. Lighting by Midwest Pro Sound & Lighting. Photobooth images by K Elaine and event photography by Jackie Elizabeth captured moments from the party produced by Kristen Kaza and Duro host Gnat Rosa Madrid.
