The Deskset is renowned for throwing library themed parties that benefit literacy and libraries. From libraries in New Orleans to Books through Bars, Deskset has raised thousands of dollars for organizations across the
country.

Who We Are: Que(e)ry began in 2010 as a subgroup of The Desk Set, an informal group of librarians, archivists, library science students and other individuals who love books and occasionally throw fund-raising parties for non-profit organizations whose missions support literacy and culture.

Que(e)ry was developed by Desk Set members as a safe space for everyone; Que(e)ry aims to promote awareness for non-profit organizations that have established libraries and archives that advocate for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer and two spirit (GLBTIQTS) rights and heritage.

Que(e)ry has held three successful parties to benefit organizations like the LGBT Community Center Library, the Lesbian Herstory Archives, Tom of Finland Foundation, the Leather Archives and Museum, and the Transgender Foundation of America Archives.

DJ Emoticon: During her years as a party DJ in San Francisco and New York during the early 2000s Lauryn Siegel was known as DJ Lambchop. She has been on hiatus for the past few years and has recently been reborn as DJ Emoticon. She describes her style as a make-it-up-as-you-go-along mix of new hipster faves and old school dance classics. If she were to pick one word to sum this genre up it would be: post-discoclashdubstepelectrofreakpunkwave.

DJ Adam E. Milksop: Adam White has spun his jamz as a DJ for the fabulous Milksop parties hosted at Union Pool, Brooklyn.

DJ CP: Originally hailing from the Windy City of the Chicago. DJ CP worked the dance floor into a frenzy at Chances Dances and Off-Chances with his records.
