You might know GoodBoy Morgan from her So Gay blog, or the underground queer rave, Milk Milk, that she co-founded. She’s been active in Los Angeles’ gay scene as an event producer, DJ, artist and just about everything else for years now.
“The first [Milk Milk] brought in 350 people,” she says. “Because of my artist background, every event was packed with crazy themes. In that time, I was known not just as a DJ but also as an event producer. Because of my vlog, I got picked up by the biggest girl party in the world, which is Dinah Shore. They invited me to DJ. From my first time there, I started playing at Prides all over the world. It’s just continued on since then.”
Morgan describes her sound and style as “hard house — anything but top 40,” which makes sense. That genre is conducive to her overwhelming air of positivity. Even the current lockdown can’t bring her down.
“I’ve been livestreaming and supporting livestreaming,” she says. “I love it. I’ve produced different scenes, different themes — I had a jungle theme and a cat theme. I also do projections so I match the visuals. I did a disco one. My girlfriend helps me with all of my streams. She films them, and we both dress up and get into it. It’s fun too because we get tips — I wasn’t expecting that to be a thing. I do a weekly one with one of the only lesbian bars left in the United States — Jolene’s in San Francisco, so that’s a big part of supporting them and keeping them on the map.”
Like everyone else, GoodBoy Morgan will be celebrating Pride at home, but she’s worked with Pride before and boxes of stuff which she intends to put to good use.
“I’ve got a 16 foot tall Pride inflatable arch,” she says. “I’ve got storage units full of ridiculous Pride things. I want to set up some really cool, light hearted scenes. I’ve been sending out GoodBoy party boxes to some of my close friends. I want to do that again to give them an experience in their home.”
Morgan is teaming up with Artificial People for a virtual Pride experience as she continue to work with the necessary restrictions current in place. And when lockdown is lifted, she’ll just keep spreading positive vibes.
“I want to write down what I really want to do for myself and the whole community, and then work off of there,” she says. “That’s where I’m at now. Building up these organizations that crumbled. People in the bar community — we only have 16 lesbian bars in the United States. Those bars helped me grow as well.”
