Soulovely

The seasonal day party is back.

Bay Area DJs Lady Ryan and Emancipacion and rapper, singer, and party host Aima the Dreamer came together in 2011 to throw the first edition of their day party, Soulovely. Over the years, the seasonal event has grown hugely popular, and its 2016 edition kicks off on April 10 and will continue through the summer on every second Sunday. Soulovely takes place in The New Parish’s patio and draws a diverse, intergenerational crowd of party-goers eager to enjoy the warm weather and some drinks and dancing to Lady Ryan and Emancipacion’s soulful selections of hip-hop and R&B throwbacks, house, Afrobeat, and various other genres. While the party isn’t officially advertised as a queer party, the three organizers’ involvement in the local queer scene has attracted a large LGBTQ following, though allies are also welcome.
