As Neighbours changes ownership and prepares for upgrades and another 40 years on Broadway, the nightlife venue will be put into motion by day this weekend for a new community market bringing together queer creators of “jewelry, pottery, original art, chainmail, hand poured candles, stickers, lingerie, vintage clothes, tarot readings, clubwear, and so much more!”
The new QT Mart from Sapphic Seattle, QTPOC Seattle, and BeautyBoiz will take place Saturday, October 15th from 1 to 8 PM at the Broadway dance club.
Organizers say it will be a “Queer Community Market” with more than 25 vendors plus performers and DJs. QT Mart says the $15 tickets will go to supporting those who are putting on the event including production labor and performers and that the selected vendors were not charged any fees to be part of the market.
A portion of proceeds will also be donated to Black Trans Advocacy Coalition, The Lavender Rights Project, and Genpride.

Meanwhile, don’t forget about the start of the 27th Seattle Queer Film Festival and Thursday’s Capitol Hill Art Walk:
