It's happy 10 for Bar Wotever!

Posted by Wotever World on 11 March 2015

‘Where do artists who are on the LGBT spectra go, share their art, skills and talents? If they are not a househould name selling out west end shows? And when they are a little bit more than total beginner, and have an act that is specific and will not fit in if the audience hates gays, or gives grief about saying she instead of he in your love songs…’
