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.Read more

A Tuesday night in London and WOTs a girl to do, well as you might have guessed, for a change (insert sarcasm here) we were out. Tuesday night is Bar Wotever. This Tuesday the night was taken over by The Short and Girlie Show who are on their global tour (ok, so just in the UK!) which they have called their 'Spreading The Love' tour.Read more
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. We got to enjoy a small set from a guest band and then more of Sam, Dee and Alice.Read more

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!!!Read more
This event did not disappoint and the vibe in the room was something reminiscent of the Astoria days, it was nice to be in a truly mixed environment where there was a higher percentage of women in attendance with music that kept you dancing all night long. I cannot wait to attend the next event.Read more
Thankfully 25 Planet London umbrellas meant we didn't let the rain dampen our spirits at this year's Pride in London.
We were fortunate to be marching with our legendary #dyketrike & 50 or so other like minded women who wanted to raise the visibility of women in Pride - and have a fabulous time whilst doing so!Read more
On Saturday 21st June we turned out with our best inner dyke and marched to show we should be visible and accepted whatever kind of dyke we are.Read more
