Everyone knows that queer nightlife is the best nightlife. If you didn't know that—now you do. Some of my favorite nightlife memories (and my most unique experiences) have been times when I've gone out of my way to explore the queer underground scene in different cities.

In many places, like Chicago and New York, the queer underground scene has long been the birthplace of some of the biggest art and music movements in modern history. House music, club kids, raves, and many parts of the fashion world have gotten their start in queer spaces around the globe.

Honoring this rich history is what Pride month is all about, so we wanted to take a moment to celebrate the queer spaces that have long been the inspiration for so much of the rave scene. These parties are safe spaces for the queer community, with dance floors that honor what it means to live proudly as your authentic self.

Here are just a couple of the many amazing queer dance floors throughout the US. How many have you grooved at?

A Club Called Rhonda

One of LA's most popular underground parties for nearly a decade now is A Club Called Rhonda, which switches locations throughout LA and has played host to some of the most iconic DJs of today. Rhonda's next party is a celebration for Pride at Don Quixote on June 8 and features icons like Violet Chachki.
