In just the past five years since JustCircuit.MAG published its first issue, the face of the modern Circuit community continues to evolve into a bigger, more complex yet more important than ever part of our lives. This is thanks in part to the many supporters of the Circuit who saw the good the party world has to offer. The term “Circuit” has evolved into a mostly fundraising purpose with an eye for innovative and exciting fun. Those of us who remember the scene a decade ago still look back and compare the parties and event weekends, and cherish talented individuals who date as far back as the disco days and have since been labeled “legendary.”

Today’s twenty-something Circuit boys and girls like a new sound. They follow a new groove, and they enjoy a much more open community than our underground days provided in the past. But that’s good! Just like the English language continues to be a living language with new words added regularly, so do these new ideas that keep our Circuit community alive. We welcome that 1st time Circuit attendee and challenge each and every one of you to enjoy the parties, play responsibly but never forget those who paved the way for our community’s successes. To name a few of these pioneers (there are many more):

  • Steve Kammon: creator and founder of (Circuit) Noize Magazine
  • The big producers: Johnny Chisholm, Jeffrey Sanker, Mark Baker, Ric Sena 
  • The major parties: White Party Miami, White Party Palm Springs, Cherry DC, Dallas Purple Party, Winter Party Festival (to name a few)
  • The writers and webmasters who kept the thoughts alive, including Dean Miner (Circuit Party Insanity), our own Mickey Weems (author of The Fierce Tribe, the first book on the Circuit), Ro Paccard (Partylist.com) and our very own founder Bill Haberkam, founder and creator of JustCircuit.com.
  • Women and men who supported the parties, staff who worked tirelessly behind the scenes (often for no pay), medical volunteers who assisted the festively impaired and people whose greatest joy was dancing.
These are the forefathers and mothers of the modern day Circuit. Today’s Circuit Media, including us at JustCircuit, the guys at Noize Magazine, our friends at Edge and others around the globe keep the fire lit and continue the visions of our predecessors in the Circuit.
Of course without our DJs, there would be no Circuit. Performance artists stand right there beside the DJs we so admire. The Kitty Meows, Power Infinitis, JoJo Infinitis and Flavas keep us continuously entertained and in line!

Looking ahead to 2013, this year might just be our biggest year yet. Pride events have gotten larger and much more numerous. The international community has opened up the Circuit to the world. Unfortunately, however, the underlying purpose for many of these events is still here. We still have HIV/AIDS, discrimination and a lack of rights. Most of our events support good causes and they are the reason JustCircuit remains committed to provide the very best for our Circuit community. The Circuit proves that giving to these causes can be fun after all these years.

All over the world, the Circuit is your oyster, and your attendance is the pearl that completes the process. Let’s continue to demand that everyone in the Circuit and party community work together and for a purpose. Let’s challenge those who believe our community is dead or just a conduit for bad behavior. They are totally wrong and simply just don’t get it. Let’s continue to create and support a modern Circuit that proves our determination to live life to the fullest, love one another, laugh as we go along – and always, ALWAYS be stunning.

Enjoy your holidays and prepare yourself for a big, BIG 2013 full of surprises!
