About the Event

Get ready for PRIDE—this year with a seductive leather twist! At The Academy, we adore the rich history of our venue. And on Pride Saturday, we are bringing back THE BALCONY, a legendary gathering spot that graced 2166 Market St. from '77-'83. According to the tantalizing pages of Blue Boy magazine, The Balcony was "where Castro Street meets Folsom Street...turning off as many people as it turns on, but intriguing everyone."

So on Pride Saturday, come indulge in this irresistible daytime celebration, where killer throwback beats, alluring leather outfits, and a vibe that will take you back to the Castro's sultry golden age await you.
