The evolution of rave fashion

Rave parties have been around for quite a while. And as the decades went on, fashion changed for each generation. Here, we will take a closer look at the rave culture, fashion, and the idea behind each important period for the rave culture.

You don’t go to a rave party in your usual party clothes

When people think of rave parties, they believe it’s something new that has to do with DJs, electronic music, and bright colors. But, the truth is a bit different. It turns out that raves originated in the fifties. It was a term used to describe wild bohemian parties happening in the beatnik set in Soho, London. 

The first King of Rave was a jazz musician by the name of Mick Mulligan, and the tradition continued in the following decades. During the ‘60s, “rave” started to mean a party in general. Rave went on to refer

How to Party Safe at Music Festivals

Many think of music festivals as lairs of all things dangerous — alcohol, drugs, unsafe sex, etc. But that doesn’t always need to be the case. There are some safety measures you can take to ensure you have the best experience possible. 

Luckily, we’ve compiled a list of things you need to keep in mind when going to one of these events. Don’t worry — you’ll be as safe as you can possibly be!

Stay Cool and Hydrated

How EDM raves have adjusted to the “new normal”

Nothing is the same anymore, and neither is partying. Still, that doesn’t mean we cannot party at all. Drive-in raves are a thing now, just like drive-in movie theaters are. You shouldn’t dismiss them until you try them, so let’s talk more about why they’re great.

Drive-in raves

People really do have to get creative with parties nowadays. Ever since the pandemic started, people began feeling lovely and isolated. It’s only natural since we can’t see each other the same way we used to. That also means that we cannot go to parties. Partying is a big part of some people’s lives, so we understand the need to want to break the rules. Sadly, that isn’t something you should be doing right now for everyone’s safety. 

Thankfully, some creative people came up with the idea of drive-in raves and parties. What does that mean? It works the same way a

Our article will tackle these questions and reveal the best ways in which you could help as an ally.

The Struggles of the LGBTQ Community Over the Years

When it comes to the LGBTQ community, the past decade was certainly not easy. In 2015, the Supreme Court expressed its support for same-sex marriage.

This further swayed the overall tone from optimism to disappointment and protest.

It’s worth noting that Pride is a movement that was …

6 Things LGBT Teens Need to Know About Safe Sex

What do you think of when you hear the term safe sex? Most people picture a condom. Some assume that the only way to really be safe is to abstain from sex completely.

15 LGBTQ Activists of the Past and Present You Should Know

From the “Rosa Parks of the LGBT movement” to a Cameroonian lawyer, you should know these heroes.
It’s LGBTQ Pride Month — a time to celebrate love, but also to champion equality and LGBTQ rights.

A Seat at the Table: International LGBTQ Rights at the United Nations

There is at the present time no binding international law that protects lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) individuals based on their sexual orientation or gender identity, nor are there any key organs or agencies of the United Nations that are specifically committed to their protection. While the success of marriage equality campaigns in North America, Europe and elsewhere might be seen as an indication that further advances in LGBTQ rights and protections are inevitable, that a tipping point has been reached on LGBTQ equality, and that we are witnessing the rapid expansion of these rights throughout the world, empirical evidence of state-sponsored homophobia does not support these claims. There is a large divide between the rights and protections enjoyed by Western LGBTQ individuals and those who live in the Global South. Being LGBTQ is punishable under law in more than 75 countries; another eight allow the death …
