I was recently Denver, CO to DJ a friend's wedding and was completely blissed out by the natural beauty and the community and family love I was surrounded by. I've been djing weddings for over 10 years and have always enjoyed creating a custom experience based on each couple and their corresponding communities. Thanks to all the couples that I've had the pleasure of working with and thanks to all the fabulous friends and network of people who have supported me, hired me, moved equipment, brought me a glass of champagne, etc etc!!! I really enjoy dancing with you all and making sure party goers of all ages have a righteous time. <3
February 17, 2014
At the beginning of this New Year the current Ships crew finally took a break to rest, readdress, and look over the past year of Ships benefits. 2013 brought us so many magical Ships parties with beautiful queers, brilliant and sexy performers from the East Bay, and new and old DJ’s that truly brought it. We also got more comfortable in our new venue, The New Parish.
Since 2006, Ships in the Night has been a radical queer dance party and fundraiser for a different cause every month. We have raised over $30,000 over the years and we have been able to grow and expand to a larger capacity venue. The party started in SF and we were officially TransBay, throwing our first Oakland Ships, in 2010.
This past year the Ships crew and patrons have been experiencing the changes and shifts that gentrification (among other factors) have had on our communities and events. Gentrification in the Bay Area has influenced the queer community and we can all see it in the crowd at the party. We have noticed an increasing amount of white faces, a lot less of Black and Brown queers, more *cis* straight-identified people coming to the queer dance party; specifically many of our Old Oakland crew and friends are not attending the party. There is also an overall vibe of individual needs being more important than the community’s needs and a lack of cognizance of personal space and spatial entitlement. We have had a lot more incidences of people getting overly intoxicated alone, people being pushy at the bar trying to buy a drink, people elbowing their way to the dance floor to claim their spot, constant microaggressions, etc.
Ships in the night is a community-based dance party. Unbeknownst to some, a short year prior to now, Ships in the Night (in Oakland) was known as a pre-dominantly (by nature of the diverse population of this city) radical & mixed Queer & Trans* People of Color (QTPOC) party with a few amazing allies. In the past year, like what happens to many awesome events, larger shifts in the bay with displacement, evictions, strategic economic advertisement, and gentrification has changed the communities who feel comfortable at the party as attendees. As organizers, our constant reiteration of our mission statement and clarifications on our facebook page (and on stage at the events) are our attempts to better integrate (and filter) our new attendees-- numbering in the hundreds-- so that our longtime friends & family have a place they feel relatively safe in as well.
We are actively working to keep the party queer, radical and fun.
The Ships in the Night crew is currently made up of four queer people living in the Bay Area.
Durt O’Shea is a DJ, the co-founder of the party and is from San Francisco. She is a white, queer, genderqueer, fat positive activist who works at St James Infirmary- a sex worker clinic run by current and former sex workers.
Antoinette Chen See began working with Ships this past summer after first attending Ships 3 years ago. She is a Black 2nd gen Blasian-Jamerican tomboy from the East Coast and moved to Oakland with chosen family to join in community with the brilliant & radical folks who call the Bay home.
Maren joined the crew about a year after the first party. She is a white anti-zionist genderqueer Jew from a middle-class background who lives and works in cooperatives and community-based health care. She has organized and volunteered in many different communities around the bay since her arrival from the south/ southwest 8 years ago.
Finn has been an attendee of Ships since 2010 and had started to organize with the crew since June 2013. They are a first generation Korean American trans/gender variant queer who has been in/around Oakland since 2010 after relocating from all around the west coast, mainly LA.
When this group got together to reflect and share feedback from our friends and community that we had gathered, it became undeniably clear that we need to have larger discussions.The challenges we are facing are not unique to us. And there is a long history and a strong tradition of QTPOC creating space for other QTPOC (some with allies, some not) including: Good Times, Living Room Project, Shameless, The Social Life, DJ Lady Ryan (Vida), Club Fist, Miz Kris, Butta, to name a few. We extend utmost respect to these organizers, past and present. We look forward to continued collaborations and wish to figure out more ways of supporting these and other events and awesome parties.
We are dedicated to continue holding the space we have collectively created over the past 7 years for those in our communities. We’re going to work really hard to shift the dynamics at the party. At the same time, we are open to the idea of ending it if it no longer serves us all.
We are inviting the community to come together to address some of the issues within queer dance party culture (not just at Ships, but elsewhere in the Bay Area). We invite queer dance party promoters, DJ’s, performers, and attendees to discuss with us the changing face of the scene. How do we keep the party safe and accessible to the community? Who is the community? Are there ways queer dance spaces and events can proactively interact with or counteract gentrification to maintain spaces for our many communities? What are successful tactics? What are the shifting needs of queer dance party attendees in the face of greater shifts here in the Bay? How do we counter-act the entitled attitudes of the upwardly mobile young queer class?
We are interested in open community dialogue about the changes that have been happening, how we desire our spaces to look and feel, interventions, what accountability looks like in this context, and insights from long time organizers and participants in queer nightlife in the bay.
We are not open to discussing: white guilt, conversations that centralize white experiences, centralization of ally experiences, or the idea that hiphop is somehow a more misogynist style of music than other styles of music.
Our intention is to, in the near future, host a forum to have conversations addressing the questions above. In the meantime, one forum that we are planning to attend and would like to also encourage others sharing these concerns to attend is the Bay Area Queers Talking Race Community Forum (QTR) about queer nightlife on March 9th, Sunday 2pm, at 3405 Piedmont Ave, Oakland.
The Ships in the Night crew
shipsinthAnight at gmail dot com
Its been and exciting year with a lot of changes for me personally.
Also, as many of you already know, my baby of almost 6 years (ships in the night, monthly queer dance party) is on a San Francisco hiatus. After several years at Underground SF, the crew felt like it was time for a break. The reality folks is that, when I put on dance parties, I'm doing it mostly for myself...and if I'm not having fun anymore, then is it really worth it to continue? Well, I want to keep ships TRANS BAY, so therefore, I am on a search for a new SF ships venue. I want to see a re-birth of this raunchy queer dance party!
Ships started out as an opportunity for me and my friends to dance to music we actually wanted to listen to, in a venue that did not discriminate based on gender presentation and/or body odor, and was not immediately co-opted by well-meaning and not-so-well-meaning straight people who like our music better than other clubs. It developed into a collective of four awesome people running two monthly clubs in SF and Oakland, plus special one-time events (during Pride month, for Safetyfest, etc.). We've raised thousands and thousands of dollars for tons of radical causes (for queers locked up, for feminist activists, for people of color collectives, etc. etc.!). We want this party to be sustainable, so we pay ourselves a bit too. But we have always been committed to giving back to the folks and projects that our community is involved in and working hard to protect.
People have been giving us excellent feedback on our parties over the years, that they love the music, that they feel more comfortable there than at other clubs, that they met lovers & made friends at our parties, and that people generally have a good attitude when they are around so many different kinds of queers and gender outlaws. Well, that makes my little heart soar and is what its all about for me. Also, its worth it for the feeling I get when i dj. When i look up and see a bunch of people twerking and popping their booties, singing along, bumping and grinding, vogueing to the songs i'm playing...well, shit, thats why i do this.
And it keeps going...Oakland Ships has been going strong for over a year and continues to be the party that i look forward to every month. Cuz its me and my crew giving birth to our visions, every month. All of you who come and shake yr asses and hang out with us every time, are our family and make us excited to keep doing it.
AND, I want to re-invigorate SF ships. therefore, I want more FEEDBACK. What can we do better? What do you like, what do you not like? Are there spaces out there in SF that you love that you would want to see ships at?
Any and all ideas are welcome. You can email the crew at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For folks who have never been to a ships party, then please come out to Oakland first Saturdays at Oasis! We love having new folks come out and tell their friends and their friends, etc...Thats how our family grows.
hope ya'll are having a great 2012 so far. here's to more struggle and celebration in the days to come.
Last night, myself and several attendees at Secret Lovers at the Lexington, noted how many HAWT people there were there...I don't know why we should be surprised since we live in an amazing place full of sassy, sexy and stylish queers of every sort. Still, it made me want to pause and appreciate the good looking people of my city and community. Hooray!
On another note, I have put together my first ever DJ MIX! After years of avoiding this essential tool for DJ's, I finally have the technology to make it happen.
Check it out and let me know what you think!
Hopefully, the first of many.

hi cyber friends...
here are a couple songs that are bringing me a lot of joy in this season of reflection, recuperation, and holiday madness. remember to take care of yourself!
Yeah Yeah Yeahs- Heads Will Roll A-Trak DubMix
Kelis- 22nd Century
and of course...
Remy Ma- Conceited (There's Something About Remy)
cuz i'm good enough, i'm smart enough, and goshdonnit, people like me!
hello cyber universe!
this is my first ever website for my own personal use and attempt to launch myself into the 22nd century. as a dj, i resisted for far too long the resources of amazing technology out there, but i am trying.
i still love the heavy feeling of the vinyl record in my hands and dropping that needle instead of clicking a mouse, but have recently given into the amazing wonder of serato and using a laptop to carry thousands of songs to choose from, as opposed to carrying giant crates of 50pounds or more of a limited selection.
i will attempt to update this handy thing with dj gigs, fun events, interesting tidbits, political rantings, and whatever else i can think of.
see you soon and take care of yourself this winter!
for now, enjoy my favorite song currently:
Kid Sister- Pro Nails Rusko Remix
homosexual lover fighter dj maker-outer fattie commie feminist with a machine
