NIGHT LIGHTS is about the magic of transformation under the lights and on the dancefloor. The purple glow and the sparkling sequins. The queens and the pretty boys and the weirdos. The exuberance and giggling. The legs.
Drawings by Paco May will be printed large scale on acrylic, velvet, chiffon, and canvas to create an immersive experience to celebrate the freedom of queer nightlife in all its textures and facets.
