ACTIVATE is a popular annual series of pop-up arts programs launched in 2014 by Chicago Loop Alliance that transform alleys and other unexpected places into creative exhibition spaces. This public block party located in the Symphony Center alley embraced the sensational spirit of drag. In celebration of the City of Chicago’s Year of Chicago Theatre, top drag queens and kings performed iconic songs from beloved musicals, all in the majesty of larger-than-life pop art, inflatable sculptures, and eye-popping set designs. This event was curated by A Queer Pride and White Mystery as a project of the Chicago Loop Alliance Foundation and Presenting Sponsor The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

On Monday, July 29, 2019, Miss Alex White performed in the third annual Soho House Mixtape project. Her song, “Gone Wise” is a true collaboration and execution on vision. Olivia Koivisto from Writing Club wrote the lyrics, Miss Alex White arranged the song and melody, Tony Scott-Green wrote the guitar hook, Mark and Rob locked down the rhythm section, J. Ivy contributed spoken word poetry to the bridge, the Music Club shouted gang vocals, then Sam Fishkin recorded and mixed the track. Veronica Kretzers created an entire bespoke outfit for Miss Alex White, then Robbie Botts shot the video on a 1990s camcorder at the Liar’s Club in Chicago.
