June 17, 2023

The House of Flora is a KiKi house that originated in Portland, Oregon est. 2016 by Legendary Passa Flora, and in 2018, the house expanded its roots in Denver, CO, under the direction of Valentino Valentine, AKA Mother Flora. 

Valentino Valentine, founder of Denver KiKi Sessions and Mother to not only the premier KiKi house of Denver but the premier house of the State of Colorado, is responsible for kicking off what we’re now experiencing — the Denver KiKi scene. The House of Flora has been seen elevating the subculture of Denver, collaborating with both local and large-scale companies, and building safe spaces for BIPOC QTs since 2018. 

Once again, Valentino and their house are excited to share that Flora Flavah will be performing at Meow Wolf for The Storybook KiKi Ball. Check out our Q&A with Valentino here.

Meow Wolf Las Vegas Pride Events 2023

During the month of June, shoppers can purchase Pride in a Can in-store at Omega Mart with all proceeds going directly to The Pride Tree. The Pride Tree is a local Las Vegas nonprofit that provides programming to LGBTQIA+ youth that are in need of a safe space after school and during summer break. 


June 30, 2023

The second annual 2Spirit celebration will feature musical and spoken word performances held at The Center, an organization that supports the LGBTQ+ community in Southern Nevada. Pride is rooted in the liberation of black and brown trans communities. We recognize that our ancestors were sacred people with gender fluid identities who paved the way for the spaces we get to live in now.

Pride Month in Las Vegas is mostly enjoyed during the slightly cooler month of October, but we will give you a head start!
