Happy Pride Month! We have officially released Lancaster Pride's 2019 Festival line-up on Lancaster Pride's Facebook!

It is such an honor to work with the following acts in this years line-up! We spent months and many, many nights down the queer rabbit hole researching LGBT+ artists. Precisely and consciously creating a line-up representing each acronym in the LGBTQIA+ community! It is extremely important to us to give the mic to womxn on any stage we work on. We are so proud to bring trans womxn and trans womxn of color, queer people of color to the front of this stage at Clipper Magazine Stadium. Thank you Lancaster Pride for trusting and allowing Animal House to have complete creative control on this build and design for the festival layout in itself! Bliss bliss!

Throwback Thursday - Meeting with the Mayor!

20190326_133809.jpg

We set up a meeting w/ Mayor Sorace of Lancaster City in March to give one last fight on the Southern Market Building, we submitted a proposal for in September 2018! Let us tell you, things got freaky & spiritual in the Mayor's Office!

We opened up our meeting w/ Mayor Sorace tasting our homemade delicious maple syrup & an oracle reading (written & illustrated by local artist @wildwomanawakens) drawing on the intention of what our relationship will be & how we will come and co-exist together. We drew a Swan.

The Southern Market Proposal was a project Animal House & Lost Sugar Disco, LLC. spent 14 months working on. It was all we ate, breathed, and dreamed last year. We placed 2nd in building concepts out of four submissions/businesses with the City of Lancaster, PA Government. It is something I am very proud of! It was one of the hardest, strenuous things I've ever done in my life! Now, I can write business plans in my sleep! It was also a fight I continued to fight for even after we were told we weren't chosen. My business partner would say, "Why are you still fighting?" I would reply, "My heart says so." I thought about the S.Market every day that I woke up this past year & it haunted me in such a spiritual manner that I chose to follow the rabbit hole of the unknown until I sat in front of Mayor Sorace. Which is where I voiced my opinion on the buildings intended use & the demand in the art market - a current a major gap and an economic problem in Lancaster.

I spoke about my dreams of building a venue for the performing arts & music scene, the longevity that would come with a community-oriented center, and the current scarcity in our city for it.

I believe I was heard by Mayor Sorace. She relayed I had a lot of tenacity showing up there. And I absolutely do. I believe your dreams are worth fighting for. I believe most things that are life-soul changing, that are worth doing will be harder, longer paths. And I believe in following them. Sometimes I close my eyes and walk on, some days I have no idea what I'm doing but I listen to my heart. I surrendered myself in front of the Mayor to the Universe & I let go of the Southern Market that day. We are still looking for a place to call Home.

Wild Woman Awakens - Swan Card Meaning: The Swan symbolizes grace and tranquility teaching us to follow our feminine intuition. It is the awakening and opening of self. Reminding us to go with the flow of life. Those who carry the Swan spirit have the power to see what awaits ahead. It is time to surrender yourself to the Universe and trust that all will balance itself out again.

Today we introduce you to Ryan, our Venue and Entertainment Committee Chair of Lancaster PA Pride! Ryan Gabriel Davis is an events coordinator, music promoter and creative visionary from Lancaster, Pennsylvania as well as owner and company founder of Animal House Productions. He can usually be found in one of two places: a forest or a concert. Ryan’s ethos is founded in the living arts, community engagement, energy, and creative expression.

Ryan strives to work with artists in the queer community, women, people of color and other marginalized groups and bringing them to stages in Central Pennsylvania. His pursuit is to make those populations feel welcome, at home, present, heard, and know that their participation is vital and valued. He believes music and art engage the communities to come together, collaborate and co-exist in spaces with the goals and intent of drawing diverse crowds and fostering connections between attendees, artists, and community. He encourages and aims to form more creative, positive, colorful, open-minded atmospheres through the power of music and art because he believes that performance, dance, and art can heal you.

We're so excited to have Ryan on board! - Lancaster, PA Pride
