I was made to be wild, wicked and free,
to carve out my own destiny,
find a place in this world where I can be
the most authentic version of me.
– poem by Christy Ann Martin

DirtyCurlie will be hosting a fantastical wonderland celebration that includes live music, mixology drinks, virtual reality, poker game, photobooth and more.
As it is the tradition of DirtyCurlie soirees, costumes are indeed mandatory… so grab your fur coats & masks & horn, and express yourself!
