⚡️ COVID Safety Considerations ⚡️

You must show proof of full COVID vaccination in order to attend events at House of Yes. NYC has mandated that COVID vaccination is required to entry to all indoor entertainment venues, and we are happy to oblige this initiative to keep you and our staff safer.

You must bring proof of vaccination that matches the name on your legal ID.

If your legal ID does not match your vaccination record, please reach out to your medical provider to get your vaccination record updated. We are not able to judge discrepancies between forms of identity.

Acceptable forms of vaccination proof:

Excelsior Pass Digital App (New York residents)
NYC COVID Safe Digital App (out of state residents)
CDC Vaccine Card

Practice patience & grace as we do our best to operate safely and minimize harm to our community. The safety & wellness of our staff is our #1 priority. Anyone who gives our staff a hard time about our rules will be unwelcome to attend House of Yes events, now and in the future.

 

⚡️ Consent & Harassment ⚡️ 

House of Yes is a space for everyone to feel welcome.

We have a zero tolerance policy for harassment, unwanted touch, and discrimination at our events. Always ASK before touching anyone and get consent. If someone is making you uncomfortable or harassing you at our venue, please come talk to a security guard or manager. We will believe you, and we will help

We strive to create a safer space for all attendees. We also acknowledge that it is impossible to provide a 100% safe space for everyone. The safest space is the crew you roll with and the boundaries you practice in any given environment. We support your safety by having an explicit safer spaces policy, training our staff to respond appropriately when you need help, staffing a special team of trained ‘Consenticorns’ with light-up beacons for additional support during fetish events, and training our security guards to remove people with misconduct in the most non-confrontational & compassionate way.

While we strive to provide systems of support at our events, we do not have the capacity to intervene or arbitrate conflicts that happen outside our venue. We are not able to be judge and jury of our community. We seek to move away from punitive systems of language and behavior. We can only take responsible action on issues that occur within our events. We believe that everyone has the capacity to make mistakes as well as the capacity to do better and grow.

Photography is commonplace at our events, and by entering the venue you consent to being photographed or filmed. If you desire to party in an environment without any photography, please join us at House of No or House of Love events.

 

⚡️ Accessibility ⚡️

All restrooms in our venue are welcome to be used by people of all genders. The entrance to the venue is ADA-accessible, and there are ADA-accessible bathrooms in both the theatre and the front room. Strobe lights and powerful sound systems are used during performances and parties.
