Are you or do you know any queer+trans youth (aged 15-21) in Guelph, Ontario who want to learn about DJing, practice with club-ready gear, learn new skills, and make friends?
We’re starting a bi-weekly youth DJ group and are looking for folks to join the club! Join local queer DJ OrangaDang (of FIERCE Guelph) every other Monday from 7-9 pm at Onyx Nightclub for ON-DECK | Guelph’s queer+trans youth DJ club.
Bring your own music: Load up a USB or cloud storage with 2-4 of your favourite songs each.
See if you like it: Jump on the decks and practice your skills with guidance from our DJs. All abilities welcome!
No equipment required: No prior training or knowledge of music theory is needed. We provide all the equipment so you can just have fun!
Learn something new: Each week we’ll focus on a new skill to help you level up.
Bring a friend (or two): Even if you don’t feel like DJing and just want to hang out/listen to music, that’s cool too! Dancing is always encouraged.
Make new friends: Find queer buddies in the community with similar interests!
