BATTLE HYMN AND HOLY MOUNTAIN AT FLASH FACTORY 229 WEST 28TH STREET, NEW YORK, NY HAS HOSTED BATTLE HYMN SINCE 2016 AND HOLY MOUNTAIN SINCE 2014 (THE FLASH FACTORY, PICTURED) “Ladyfag, the night life ambassador who draws a menagerie of nouveau club kids to her year-old weekly Chelsea party at Flash Factory, Battle Hymn — as well as Holy Mountain, her signature monthly blowout — explained the increasing prevalence of identity-agnostic parties most commonly referred to as ‘queer.’ ‘There is a community for a reason,’ Ladyfag said. ‘I think for a long time, people wanted to reject that. Like, “I don’t just want to go to a party because we’re all gay and that’s what makes a party.” Oh, I agree, that’s very base.’ Ladyfag, who was born Rayne Baron, identifies herself as queer. ‘At the end of the day, there’s a million straight clubs,’ she said. ‘They might be playing the same music. I don’t want to necessarily be there.’” (Jeremy Allen, The New York Times, 2017)
