Katie Giattini aims to create safe spaces and events for LGBTQ+ women and nonbinary individuals, especially in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. “Coming back into the world after lockdown, the complete lack of women- and nonbinary-centered events and safe spaces could be felt by all. At the time—May 2021—there was nowhere for us to feel safe,” Giattini says. In response, she co-founded SCOPE Tonight, Zodiac-themed parties held throughout the New York City area that celebrate queer women and nonbinary individuals, providing them the much-needed space to be themselves. The greatest part about her job? Seeing people having a good time. “I love being able to look around the room at all of these queer people, living their absolute best lives and know that I had a small part in bringing these people together and making sure there is always a safe space for everyone,” she says. Through these events, she hopes to extend SCOPE’s reach and find more spaces for LGBTQ+ women and nonbinary individuals. “My vision is pretty simple,” she says. “To continue to carve out space for queer women, extend SCOPE’s reach to further serve the queer community, and continue to uplift and celebrate the LGBTQ+ people everywhere.”
