June in San Francisco brings an even greater onslaught of fabulous queer entertainment than the rest of the year. Most likely you're aware of the marches at the end of the month -- the Transgender Pride Parade, the Dyke March, and the catch-all LGBT Pride Parade. The month's embarrassment of entertainment riches includes this week's Fresh Meat Festival, a boon of transgender and queer performance put on by Sean Dorsey of Sean Dorsey Dance with so many elements that deserve special mention it's hard to know where to start.

There's dance (from various companies), an all-male hula sitch (Na Lei Hulu I Ka Wekiu), a trapeze act (Cohdi Harrell), comedy (Natasha Muse), a cappella singing (the Gay Asian Pacific Alliance Men's Chorus), and aerial dance (the aptly named Emily Leap, whose video is above).

The headliner is a group from New York City called Vogue Evolution. Did you catch them on America's Best Dance Crew? If you missed it, some of it's in the video clip above. It is not only fierce dance, but also the flawless free spirit of queerness in a national spotlight. The prospect of seeing this group live will probably make you buy tickets online. Prepare to be pleasured.

The Fresh Meat Festival starts at 8 p.m. (and continues through June 19) at Z Space, 450 Florida (at 17th St.), S.F. Admission is $15-$20; call 626-0453 or visit. Tara Jepsen

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
