This new creation heralds the next level of Diana's trademark 'glitter bomb [of] a friendly, feel-good celebration of human beings sharing a space where it's safe for them to be themselves.'- New York Times. This is not a play-it's an experience. The Infinite Love Party is where love is forged. A celebration of soul awakening. It's where play breeds change. It's where queer magic can do its healing. For All People. A celebration of the outskirts. A celebration of Queerness and our Allies. A celebration of POC and our Allies. A space for bare humanity to exist- where we will leave kinder and more open, more connected to our purpose, our bodies, and our hearts. A celebration of liberated selves. A celebration of liberated love. AN INFINITE LOVE PARTY!
