4. The Event and Venue Staff
To the promoters, bouncers, bartenders, coat check, A/V techs, cleaning staff, and the countless other people involved in putting on a stellar show, these people work day and night to ensure that all of us can escape reality for a few hours. They are the unseen heroes who are usually critiqued but not always appreciated. DMNW is thankful for everything these individuals do.
5. Harm Reduction
Our generation is driving positive social change in a big way through groups like the Conscious Crew, Stay Safe Seattle, and Dance Safe. These groups, and many others, are actively trying to help those who need it. These are the individuals who are on the front lines while also attempting (and succeeding) in changing things for the better.
Most importantly, DMNW is thankful for each and every person who makes up the DMNW family. We are thankful for the opportunity to be representatives of this community, and for a supportive space to express who we truly are. Kuddos to YOU: our fellow readers, our fellow music fanatics, and good vibe aficionados. You help make this community great.
