So, this month POUT from Elaine at The Glass Bar moved to a plush new venue. Given that I hadn't had a good old dance in a while, and I wanted to celebrate dropping a few kilos, this was just too good an opportunity to miss.

Event Review: DIVA After Dark

Posted by Planet Nation on 27 September 2017

It isn’t often that you see an over 25s event taking place in East London so when DIVA After Dark popped up I was at first a little unsure. I don’t see myself as young enough or trendy enough to spend time around Shoreditch and it certainly isn’t an area I will often go, however my friend was running the event so I wanted to support her, and as a new event, I also wanted to check it out for all the Planet Nation readers.

Review of Read my Lips in Bristol

Posted by L Devo Child on 26 March 2017

What a cracking night!

I went with my exhausted self (I’d been moving house all day) to check out the debut of Read my Lips at the Old Market Assembly, wondering how I’d stay awake long enough to take it all in.

Proudly celebrating Pride on a gloomy Winter night

Posted by PetitP on 16 March 2017

I am a strong believer that pride is a key element in keeping our community together and to celebrate our pride for being out and proud. Even though this is a daily task, and celebrated worldwide, usually around the anniversary of Stonewall riots at the end of June, why not celebrate it in gloomy winter as well?!

Posted by Planet Nation on 14 November 2016

The night was buzzing and the bar was full of women dancing, singing and generally having a good time. I had a great time catching up with some women I knew, and chatting to lots of women I'd never met. Everyone was really friendly and in a great mood

Finding inner peace with Kalie

Posted by Planet Nation on 29 October 2016

We increasingly are living busy, hectic and stressful lives. We don't plan it that way but life just seems to throw things at us and it is easy to feel tired, stressed, anxious and overwhelmed. However taking out just one hour a week for relaxation can counter this and help to reset your mind and body to help you cope with the week ahead.

What an #Outcome

Posted by Planet Nation on 17 October 2016

The 10 October was the culmination of 2 years of photographing people up and down the country for Tom Dingley. What started out as a relatively small project photographing people holding baby photos and reflecting where they have reached, has now become immortalised in a book. On 10 October a number of the people featured in the book went along to Greenwich University for the launch event

Lesbian Discussion Group

Posted by Planet Nation on 12 March 2016

The Lesbian Discussion Group first started in September 1980. It has always been hosted at Gay’s The Word Book shop. It is pretty impressive that a weekly event has survived over 35 years. The venue hasn’t closed, the group hasn’t ended. Truly they must be doing something right!
