Club Q: The Legendary Dance Party for Women

Kristen Wolf

IFFF revisited

It all started back in the 1980s. Avid DJ Page Hordel assembled a collective of spirited girlfriends, and together they created the unique phenomenon that was Club Q, San Francisco’s legendary lesbian party. For 15 years, on the first Friday of every month, about 1,000 women of different colours, ages and backgrounds came together to party. Club Q’s longevity and its diverse clientèle appeared something of a miracle in the city’s fickle club scene.
