Inclusive Indulgence Party
Dec 9th 8pm - 1am ∙ Columbus, OH
Hey Party People!
Get ready to step into a rainbow-hued wonderland at our Inclusive Indulgence Party, happening on December 9th at The Autonomy Project’s Wicked Eden! This night is all about celebrating the vibrant spirit of the LGBTQIA+ community and our fabulous allies. All guests and orientations welcome, but this party will be all rainbows, all the time.
Before We Start: Platonic Touch: Unlocking Non-Sexual Affection Class:
To ease the transition into our first LGBTQIA+ event, we’ll be hosting a special one-hour class dedicated to exploring the enriching world of non-sexual touch, from hugs to cuddles to everything in between. This unique class is your gateway to understanding and practicing the meaningful art of platonic touch, icebreakers to meet new friends, and load you up on knowledge about your body, setting the perfect tone for the evening ahead. This class is INCLUDED in your ticket price! Class will be held from 8:15pm – 9:15pm, with the party starting shortly after.
Dance the Night Away with DJ NautiKat
Prepare to be whisked away on a euphoric journey with the electrifying beats of DJ NautiKat! Known for her pulsating house dance music, DJ NautiKat will have you grooving, moving, and shaking under a cascade of vibrant lights. It’s more than just music; it’s a rhythmic experience that connects us all!
Cuddle Up in Our Giant Pillow Pool
Fancy a cozy cuddle or a playful tumble? Dive into our ginormous pool of pillows, where comfort meets fun in the fluffiest way possible. It’s the perfect spot to chill, chat, and make new friends, all while enveloped in a sea of softness.
Rainbows for Days
True to our theme, we’re going all out with rainbow décor! From dazzling lights to colorful accents, we’re painting Wicked Eden in every shade of joy and pride. Don your most colorful outfit and immerse yourself in this vivid, jubilant setting.
An Event for Everyone
While we’re throwing the spotlight on our LGBTQIA+ family, allies are more than welcome to join the celebration. After all, what’s a party without friends who stand by us? Let’s make this a night of inclusivity, acceptance, and unforgettable fun.

When it comes to attire, anything goes at Wicked Eden, we want you to feel comfortable and in the mood to have an adventure! Wicked Eden is a place where you can wear as much or as little as you desire. We want you to always feel comfortable expressing yourself in whatever ways you desire. We encourage you to go outside your comfort zone with festive, outrageous, or amazing clothing that you never get a chance to wear anywhere else.
We LOVE volunteers! Join our team of community volunteers, and you will find new friends, a support system and a tight knit center of empowerment. Once you have obtained membership as above, please check out the volunteering section of The Autonomy Project website.
By volunteering with us you will have the opportunity to make a meaningful impact on people’s lives, but you will also get perks such as discounted or free access to our events and classes, and most importantly, collaborative input in what we do here. Your ideas are important to us, and as a volunteer, we want you to feel like you’re part of our community: one that celebrates who you are and supports your journey.
HIGH POTENTIAL, NO PRESSURES
Our community thrives in a space where countless delightful interactions could happen, but none are obligated to occur. Think of it as “high possibility, low expectations.” Outside of our general requirements of respect, you are under no obligation to interact with anyone in any particular way. This makes our space ideal for new faces and seasoned community members alike.
HIGH POTENTIAL, NO PRESSURES
Our events aren’t the product of one person hosting a party for pay; they’re the result of a community coming together and creating something new. Everyone who attends is expected to co-create: money, time, energy, enthusiasm, work, intention, example, concern and/or awareness. Have ideas, games, art, music to share? Want to bring them to life with us?
A FOUNDATION OF TRUST
Our gatherings are magical because of trust. We fiercely protect each member’s privacy, encourage honest risk communication, and take diligent care of our shared environments. It’s our collective respect and integrity that fortify this safe space.
CLEAR AND PRESENT CONSENT
Upholding consent goes beyond preventing harm; it’s about affirming everyone’s freedom to fully and joyfully agree to their interactions. It’s through this affirmation that our spaces thrive with genuine, unreserved participation.
INCLUSION AND DIVERSITY
We’re committed to inclusivity. Our community is a tapestry of individuals from diverse racial, ethnic, and social backgrounds, including all gender identities and expressions. We encourage everyone to engage with empathy and curiosity, always asking rather than assuming someone’s identity or preferences.
Our space is and always will be wheelchair accessible, with multiple spaces for varying sensory needs.
No refunds will be given on ticket purchases. Address is provided to confirmed ticket holders after purchase. Wicked Eden is located on the south side of Columbus, approximately 10 minutes from downtown, and is one block away from a COTA bus stop.
Wicked Eden is operated by The Autonomy Project, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to education, community building, and empowerment for individuals within the alternative sexuality community, sex work industry, and the LGBTQIA+ community. Our mission is to create a safe and inclusive space where individuals can freely express their sexuality and gender identity without fear of discrimination, judgment, or violence.
