Mind, Body and Soul Food Sunday

Posted by Naomi Bennett on 21 October 2014

I tried the jerk chicken drumstick; the curried mutton; the macaroni cheese; the fried chicken wings; the coleslaw and the salt fish fritters. Ok, so I tried it all! It was amazing and reminded me of the food my ex-girlfriend’s mother used to make on a Sunday. A very typical Caribbean feast and well worth every penny.

Calling all lesbians with a song in their heart!

Posted by Naomi Bennett on 11 September 2014

The night starts of with a few songs from Sam, Dee and Alice; by Sam's own admission they like the old ones. Tonight we were treated to some Amy Winehouse and Elvis before moving on to a Sam, Dee and Alice original. Later we get some Dixie Chicks, Pink and Bob Dylan.

Pride in London Parade - A Planeteer Perspective

Posted by Planet Nation on 05 July 2014

So if you want to have a Pride that actually makes you feel proud rather than drunk and disorientated (you still have plenty of time to do this after the march) and you want to march for a group who support the LBQ community unlike others who just want to take your money, lie to you and that will not help you in the slightest (I mention no names and I tell you no lies), I urge you to march with Planet London next year. I will be back and this time I want to ride my own tricycle and see if we can’t get some tricycle tricks going!!!
