Philadelphia, PA - The Diabolique Foundation is proud to present Diabolique Ball 2017: Myths & Mysteries! Our offering to the mythical world beyond the veil will be the perfect way to pay tribute to your inner mythological beast while raising thousands of dollars for charities providing vital services to Philadelphia’s diverse communities.

For twenty one years, the Diabolique Ball has allowed Philadelphians of all persuasions to BE BAD FOR A GOOD CAUSE, producing a decadent annual fetish ball to raise funds to support Philadelphians in need. Traditionally, the Ball has been a staple the weekend before Thanksgiving and this year it's on November 18th at Voyeur Nightclub in Philly’s Gayborhood.

Diabolique Ball enforces strict dress code of fetish, fantasy, or formal, that doesn’t mean that it will be tough to find the perfect outfit. leather gear, vinyl or latex, chainmail, togas, horns and mermaid scales are perfect for this event. Need inspiration? Think Fairie Folk, creatures of the deep, deities on high, Minotaurs, Satyrs, Djinn, or your favorite monsters from tales of old!

Each year, the Ball boasts live fantasy performances, fetish fashion shows, phantasmagoric DJs, frisky charity playstations and so much more!

This year is no different with local burlesque star HoneyTree EvilEye hosting ethereal performances by Vonka, Jezabelle Von Jane, & Pilar Salt, featuring Travis Tea, plus fashion shows by Passional Boutique, Delicious Boutique, and BabyLoves Latex who will all showcase their supernatural fashions on the catwalk during the 9:00 stage show hosted by Titano.

Ball attendees will be able to boogie to DJ sets from famed Philadelphia turntable artists Dave Ghoul and Mighty Mike Saga .

And of course, in case all of the on-stage entertainment isn’t enough, Diabolique is bringing back its infamous dungeon, sure to satisfy even the most hedonistic heroes and sex starved sybarites. Open equipment in the Dragon’s Lair will be supplemented by charity play stations manned by local kinksters, where adventurers can try out anything from spankings and electric play to fire massage and rope play in exchange for donations to our dungeon charity.

Although no personal photography is permitted at the event, Photoplay Photography will provide professional portraits to benefit charity.

Purchase of VIP tickets will grant you access to the Olympus VIP Lounge, a celebrity soiree featuring two hours of open bar and delicious edibles all night where you can mingle with mythological magicians and pleasure seeking supplicants.

After the ball comes the Exhibitionists After-Party, an open to the public (no dress code) dance party at Voyeur that will last until the wee hours of the morn. This year’s Ball benefits both Women's Medical Fund and Witnesses to Hunger. The Women's Medical Fund protects and expands abortion access for low-income women and teens through direct service and advocacy. Witnesses to Hunger is a research and advocacy project partnering with the real experts on hunger—mothers and caregivers of young children who have experienced hunger and poverty.

Our playstations and internal charity fundraisers benefit TransFaith, a local and national non-profit that affirms, empowers, and engages transgender and gender non-conforming people and their communities. Through education and collaboration, they equip and cultivate diverse expressions of gender-affirming spiritual vitality.

Follow the siren song to the land of myths and mysteries and BE BAD FOR A GOOD CAUSE!

Tickets, available exclusively on EventBrite (can be purchased through EventBrite at PASSIONAL Boutique) are $50 for November, and $60 day of the ball. VIP Tickets are $100. Ticket prices do not include service and convenience charges.
