Comfort & Joy is incredibly excited to invite you to the long-awaited return of AFTERGLOW New Years Eve - the winter sister of our legendary pride party - back again to offer you a glorious evening of revelry and community as we ring in 2022!

It’s been a long haul through the pandemic, and whatever struggles you’ve been through, we all deserve a beautiful moment to collectively celebrate what we’ve overcome and the new world we have before us.

At Comfort & Joy we love creating magical spaces to celebrate each person’s unique light and to offer you cathartic escape and revival, and are incredibly grateful for the privilege of providing our beloved community with a special New Year’s Eve experience for you to bask in euphoric bliss with your fellow queerdos until the break of dawn.

We can't wait to welcome you and celebrate the new year together!

In our main rooms the Comfort & Joy Art Collective and other fabulous artists like Steve Dudek will be casting high witchery and fluorescent splendor.

Our cuddle tent will also be back to create space for more grounded interpersonal immediacy and caring touch, led by the ingenious Blue and with special tea service to help set intentions curated by the ever caring Phoenix (Brendan Neff-Hall).

And upstairs as always you can fall into a debaucherous whirlpool of luscious delights.

>>Special Note about Consent & Communication<<

Comfort & Joy is here for you! If you ever need support, see someone who may or have other concerns at our parties, please find one of our 'vibe-raters' (purple glow collars) or a house manager (pink glow collars)

We want everyone to always feel respected, adventurous and safe at our events. Consent makes that possible. Please communicate and check in before touching. If you aren’t feeling it, a polite ‘no thank you’ is kind. ‘No’ is also a complete sentence. If you receive ‘no’ in any form, please be gracious and respect it. Ultimately, we request that we ask each other for permission rather than forgiveness, when it comes to consent.

NYE silver/disco realness, dayglo/neon/glow anything and whatever else makes you feel fabulous most highly encouraged.

Face-paint artistic majesty by Dillon Rodriguez and more!

Photobooth by the ever impressive and talented Dot (PhotosByDot)
