Jackie House showcases a vital figure in Detroit’s queer nightlife scene with an interview live from Red Bull Radio Studios in Detroit.

Blessed are the party promoters, those seemingly anonymous figures orchestrating the events bringing joy into our lives without receiving any of the fanfare. Steven Reaume is one such promoter whose impact on Detroit’s queer underground dance scene is much larger his own reputation. In the early ’90s he launched the VOOM promotions crew with Marke Bieshcke, and they began throwing KLONK parties, where the diverse audiences and audacious aesthetics stood out. Since then he’s managed the Industry nightclub in Pontiac, MI; run the BAK DØR weekly party at Grenadier Club; and is in the process of opening his own club, BLDG01. Jackie House chats with Reaume live from the Radio Bull Radio studios in Detroit, getting all the details about his 25-plus years of promoting parties in the Motor City. The first hour will also feature an interview with Marke Bieschke about his recently published article on legendary gay Detroit DJ Ken Collier.
