Throughout the multi-day experience, Dreamland offers complimentary wellness programs, local and international cuisine, art installations, and interactive exhibitions.

Jake Resnicow is the premiere promoter in the LGBTQ+ space. He was recently honored as one of the Out100 Most Influential LGBTQ People of the Year. His Pride Festivals in New York, Miami, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles are spectacles, and he’s produced prestigious fundraisers, raising over $30 million for LGBTQ+ organizations including Life Ball, Trevor Project, The White Party Gala, Ali Forney Center, Lambda Legal, and It Gets Better.

A portion of the proceeds from Dreamland will benefit the Theresa Velasquez Memorial Scholarship program at Femme House, a nonprofit organization that provides opportunities for women and gender-expansive individuals in the technical and behind the scenes areas of music.

Resnicow explains, “Less than 1 percent of charting artists are LGBTQIA+. Together, we will change this with a new scholarship program in honor of my dear friend DJ Theresa.”

DJ Theresa was one of the top female DJs in the country and had been named to Billboard’s Pride List of Industry-Shaping LGBTQ Executives but passed away in the tragic 2021 Surfside apartment building collapse.

“Theresa’s undeniable talent for music helped lift people’s spirits, and her DJ sets brought joy to everyone’s hearts,” reflects Resnicow. “We pledge to continue her legacy by providing opportunities to aspiring LGBTQIA+ artists.”

The current fellows of the Theresa Velasquez Memorial Scholarship program are GeeXella (they/them) an Atlanta-based Black/Latinx, nonbinary and queer multidisciplinary artist who founded Duval Folx, a dance party that brings awareness to the violence Queer/Trans and BIPOC communities face in the South; and SEVYN, a Los Angeles based DJ and host of the FLUID show on dublab Radio.
