What is the MCQP?

Mother City Queer Project (MCQP) is an annual dress-to-theme costume party celebrated during the December festive season. Each year partygoers dress up to a theme and showcase their creations on the pink carpet, after which they enjoy music from local and international performers on various dance floors.

Since its inception, MCQP has grown in size and scale to incorporate a more diverse demographic of partygoer from Cape Town residents, nationally and abroad. The development and growth of MCQP from an underground community event to one of widespread commercial appeal, increased numbers and popular acceptance can be traced through the its use of venues over the last 20 years.
