Milkshake festival is a dance festival that has been created from the thought ‘nothing should be a must, anything is possible’. Milkshake festival shows that entertainment, taste in music, choice of clothing and status has nothing to do with sexuality. Life is just a party thanks to the great diversity of skin colors, religions, sexual preferences and male and female forms. Milkshake wants to celebrate the city’s initiatives and is an impetus to bring courtesy and friendly manners back into society. Thick, thin, small, large, gay, straight, trans, black or white: people are the salt of the earth and this is what we celebrate!

Pornceptual (Berlin) presents prnography as queer, diverse and inclusive. They aim to prove that prn can be respectful, intimate and artistic while questioning usual prnographic labels. “Can art succeed where prn fails – to turn us on?”
The project is an art platform that wants to de-contextualize prnography in its usual sense and show that an explicit content can be considered art. Different than it might look, at first sight, Prnceptual is not an average party. Their goal is to create a free atmosphere, where people can express themselves while proposing a link with the art world.
