A packed house of queer women and the occasional man sat down to this exciting and diverse film programme for an evening of celebrating grass roots, queer visibility on screen.Read more
Blush Bar is a very relaxed bar with friendly staff and customers. Siobhan runs the quiz on Wednesdays, which was heavily attended tonight and the bar feeling pretty full, although we all certainly could have cosied up to make more space for additional quizzers.Read more
Rosie Wilby’s humour filled, self-depricating ‘Absolute Love’ conveys a serious message at its centre. The power of modern technology that has improved global communication and access beyond even Berners-Lee’s (look him up on your nearest search engine device) wildest imagination, has somewhat stilted the art of one-to-one relationships.Read more
This 4 in one event brought together some of the best of a broad range of events aimed at lesbians & bi women and the genderqueer of London. It feels like the return of the superclub, where different rooms host different banging tunes, live music, wild entertainment and plenty of women.Read more
We were invited along to join WTF! (What Thursdays are For) for their 1 year birthday party. The group is a weekly meet up, of mainly Gingerbeer members, and a few friends through word of mouth, who meet at the bar in Soho Theatre on Thursdays from 6.30pm.Read more
According to the publicity material, Susan Calman’s show “This Lady’s Not For Turning Either”, is about growing up gay in Scotland in the 1980s. Is it b*llocks. This show is an extended heartfelt plea for equal marriage rights in the 2010s. It’s also very, very funny.Read more
Yesterday Planet London hosted a fundraising event for 3 London based LGBT charities; ELOP, London Friend and Stonewall Housing.
The event, which was kindly hosted by Candy in Soho, drew in a number of lesbian and bi women of the cake-loving genre!
Now, I have to admit that I haven't actually been to Candy Bar in a while. I see myself as outside of the core customerbase. When I think of Candy Bar I think of uber-trendy student lesbians, under 25, and who are single and looking for fun. Thursday night was quite an eye-opener to the fact that the customerbase of this bar is expanding beyond this stereotype.Read more
Sunday 30 September, Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens. Sunny cloudy weather. A bunch of gays. What more could you want for the end of the Summer?
We arrived early, ready to set up our stall, which was bang in the middle of the row of pop up gazebos.
A gorgeous Summer's night saw us try out the new Southbank surfing venue that promised to offer enough space for the growing guest list at SBS.Read more
This bash wasn't just about L-Wired though, with the launch of G3's new social networking website for lesbians and bi women (the 'facebook for lesbians') as the main draw - including a raffle of some top notch prizes.Read more
The latest in the revolving cocktail night saw a new twist with the evening starting with an optional cocktail making masterclass - plenty to both learn and drink, at the classy Holborn House (we've voted it the best toilets in a venue for lesbian events). This was accompanied by tasty canapes for those who took part.Read more
The Dalston Superstore is an interesting bar to take in, being long and thin with strange sculptures on the walls and hanging from the ceiling. Exposed pipes along the roof give it an almost industrial feel while the silver disco ball in the corner adds a bit of glamour. The dance floor is downstairs only tonight it was off limits. I am here for the brand new and very exciting T Club. Unlike most of the clubs I go to with the proviso of ‘Men as guests’, tonight it was ‘Women as guests’.
Thursday night was the launch of this new brand, called L-Wired at Clinic in Piccadilly Circus. The venue was quite quirky with mannequins hanging from the ceiling and surgical masks hanging from the menus and the staff in medical uniforms, but this was normal for the venue so what did L-Wired offer?Read more
As the theme suggests the event was a celebration of tango! To ensure that all attendees had at least a chance of being able to dance, a tango class had been held for the first half hour of the night. Those who didn’t participate were still shuffling their feet later into the night, while those who paid attention seemed to fill the dance floor for the rest of the evening. I was shuffling.Read more
Crazy Gorgeous (shortly to be weekly on Fridays, between 10pm and 3am) started bang on time, 10pm means just that and not a moment before. I arrived at 9.45pm, pre-work drinks having ended rather prematurely, and was advised to wait at the venue’s ground floor bar, so to speak (I can’t attest to the punctuality of the closing time, being old and having left before midnight).Read more
