There’s only one place in Iowa City to find go-go dancers, drag queens, and disc jockeys spinning for dance parties any day of the week — Studio 13.
The vibrant downtown establishment, the city’s only gay bar and club, is holding an ongoing seven-day extravaganza ending June 19 as the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community celebrates Iowa City Pride Week 2011.
This week’s Pride activities at Studio 13 and elsewhere emphasize and celebrate the community’s efforts to galvanize equality efforts throughout the city.
“We’re trying to make Pride bigger and bigger each year,” said Crystal Belle, a Studio 13 entertainer and bartender. “This week is so important to get the word out. It’s not only for the bar anymore, but it’s about equality and activism for the whole community.”
