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
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.
