L.U.E.Y. Weekend

 

 
ABOUT US... How it all started
 
The Houston Council of Clubs (HCC), Inc. was formed to promote, sponsor and hold an annual event called "Let Us Entertain You" weekend  - a.k.a. LUEY Weekend. Throughout the year we work in a combined brotherhood, sisterhood, and camaraderie among member organizations, organizations, associations, courts, local bars and businesses as well as individuals whose stated purposes coincide with those stated in our HCC guidelines. And it all culminates into one incredible weekend of debauchery and fun!
 
 
 

Let Us Entertain You started in 1971, by the Texas Riders, a gay leather motorcycle club, in order to 'keep the party going' for individuals returning from Mardi Gras in New Orleans - read; throw a party to thank the people of New Orleans for all their hard work during Mardi Gras... A "Let Us Entertain You" weekend for all the L/leatherfolk in New Orleans. The weekend following Fat Tuesday was designated LUEY Weekend.

In 1973, it officially became an annual event and the first full-fledged "LUEY Weekend" was born.
In the infant stages, LUEY Weekend consisted of a small bar run by those eager to continue celebrating after Mardi Gras... Over the years, as word spread and the event grew in leaps and bounds, other local social clubs and charity organizations joined in hosting this event.

Many years later, the Houston Council of Clubs added the 'Show of Shows'. This event marks the closing of LUEY weekend and is held on Sunday afternoon. The 'Show of Shows' is put on by the member clubs and features a wide range of what can loosely be called (read; demented) "entertainment". It  has delighted and mortified thousands upon thousands of participants over the years.

LUEY Weekend is still primarily geared for the L/leather & BDSM communities... However, it has managed to uniquely transcend all boundaries by bringing together the Leather, BDSM, Bear, Cowboy, Transgendered, and Drag communities for a four day social.

Gay, Bi, Pans. Trans, or Straight... male or female or somewhere in-between. It doesn't matter how you identify or define yourself... all are welcomed - and all have a damn great time at LUEY Weekend. It is a venue to network, socialize, party and getaway from the hectic everyday world... And meet lifelong friends from all over the globe in the process.

LUEY Weekend... The Houston Council of Clubs. Inc. has grown to its current member roster - with more than 1200 registered guests from over 47 states and 6 countries.

There has never been, and still is no registration fee for out of town guests. Local guests (Harris county and surrounding counties) are required to pay a $15 registration fee.
