BLACK LIVES MATTER
Don't Ask Don't Tell has always been a social and political party. The name itself arises out of the destruction of the DADT military policy back in January of 2011. We pride ourselves on respect, inclusion, and love. Three unwavering principles that when you walk through the doors of Great Scott you feel right away.
Atrocious events of discrimination have been on the rise over the past few years, and they have begun to demand our attention. This disrespect towards the black community is unacceptable and truly destructive to our nation as a whole. The injustices must be rectified.
So what can we do to help?
This DADT will accomplish three things.
1. raise awareness
2. raise money for the Black Youth Project (more information below regarding this non profit)
3. celebrate and enjoy the talents of some of Boston's best black performers
The night will be soaring high as all three DJs take to the floor with their unique styles and selections!

Our performers this month are three of Boston's most ambitious queens. Each with their own flair and talents, but all with a passion to push limits of entertainment and art. Please put your hands together and get your dollar bills out for:
The longest running continuous performer of DADT Severity is edgy, funny and raw. Her alternative approach has most recently landed her the winning title of Salem's Scream Queen this past Halloween.
With energy and charisma to spare, Qya explodes on the stage as a true diva does. With enrapturing performances of popular hits she is always a crowd favorite. Glamour, MAMA. Think gold and diamonds.
