Chicago, IL - The equinox has come and gone and on Tuesday, October 1, Subject to Change, Logan Square's 18+ queer dance party, is ready to get into the autumnal spirit with Harvest Moonbeam, a benefit for the West Side's Patchwork Farms hosted by Chicago's own Mister Junior.

Billed as "the queen of Boylesque and Vaudezilla's hairy-chested heartthrob," Mister Junior's sensuous burlesque tantalizes while also addressing expectations of race and gender normativity, "werqing to strip away the gender binary for your viewing pleasure," according to his Facebook page. He will be joined by very special musical guest Cody Copeland and resident DJs Baby Bones, Butch Sassidy the Come Dance Kid and Josie Bush.

"Subject to Change aims to create a space of 'no shame' when it comes to the music they enjoy and the people they love and care about -- family (both blood and chosen) and our community via the events and publications they produce," Subject to Change's website reads. "They hope to generate positive energy within the community and channel that energy to support the many organizations working to make this city a better place for queer folks."

Subject to Change is held the first Tuesday of every month at Township, 2200 N California Ave, just off the California Blue Line stop in Logan Square. The event features a rotating roster of both local and guest DJs and performers and benefits a different group or initiative "that serves the needs of queer Chicagoans and their friends and fans."

Patchwork farms is an urban farm located at 2825 W Chicago Avenue in Humboldt Park where friends and business partners Katie Williams and Molly Medhurst grow a variety of fruits and veggies that they sell from their garden next to Feed Restaurant from mid-May through October.

"We have been friends for 10 years and have lived in Humboldt Park for eight," the partners, who have matching tattoos, say on their website. "We started Patchwork Farms as a way to earn a living doing the work we love while producing one of the most fundamental needs for our friends and neighbors – healthy food."

Harvest Moon is slated to run from 9:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m. this coming Tuesday at Township. All proceeds from the party's $5 suggested donation go to Patchwork Farms. For more information, check out Subject to Change Facebook page and RSVP to the the event!
