The Armory After Porn

Adult-film production is likely gone from California, but nightlife legend Audrey Joseph won’t let the coolest building in the Mission just sit there.

“I fell in love with this place because the potential was real, and I perceive myself to be a nightclub developer. For me, the bigger the space, the better — because I can lower the price and people can come in and get bang for their buck and because I can work on volume. That’s why we spent so much money on the soundsystem, the stage, the grid.” – Audrey Joseph

Post-Pride Prism

That night, we experienced a world-class dance party at Audrey Joseph and Brian Kent’s Jungle: Pride at The Armory. Swathed in animal print fabric and supported by the able arms of Richard Sablatura and Jeff Doney, we stormed The Armory, joining thousands of smiling dancers and fellow hosts BeBe Sweetbriar, Carnie Asada, and Andy Lax, surrounded by the most incredible sound system, lighting and other special effects, and atmospheric details this City has seen in decades. The international DJs and gogo dancers lived up to all expectations and Betty Who’s 1AM appearance provided the perfect peak performance.

Betty Who still being herself

“I think that’s why I love being in San Francisco so much. I think that everybody here can just be themselves. It reminds me of how I grew up and how I want to continue to grow and live my life.”

“The world can learn a lot from San Francisco right now.” – Betty Who

Dancing at the Armory

“Party promoter Audrey Joseph promises a big celebratory event when Pride at the Armory commences at the San Francisco Armory on June 24 at 9pm. Singer Betty Who will perform in a jungle-themed setting, which will include the participation of top DJs from around the world. Australia’s Paul Goodyear and the UK’s Wayne G, along with Pagano, Danny Verde and Seth Breezy, are among those who will be spinning dance tunes.”

“Pride has a significance for me each year,” Joseph said. “It’s a celebration of our fight for equality, liberty and justice. We can never forget where we came from and what we accomplished.”
