Discerning scene musings from the queen of East London!
I’m always trying to organize myself into some sort of vague routine but actually I really enjoy a few surprises along the way…especially when they’re good ones!
Being on the look out for nights out with a twist is always on my agenda. So this week we’re heading down to The Queen Adelaide on Hackney Road!

Ever inventive, The Glory are having a St. Patrick’s Day Bollix Ball on Friday 17th, over two floors of ‘Irish themed queer, frolicking freakshow’ antics with the gang. Shows are planned with ShayShay, Phoenix, Rudi Douglas on the piano… plus John Sizzle and Jonbenet Blonde playing records. 10pm – 3am (it’s a late one!) The Glory opens at 5pm theglory.co for more details!
On Friday 17th March, get ready for the Spring edition of BUM.P at Dalston Superstore. Upstairs and down, it’s a takeover with Jacqui Potato, Mark Ashley Dupe, Charles Jeffrey, James Philips and yours truly, that’s me!

Manchester’s legendary eclectic disco dance party is guaranteed to get you going, with DJ music from Guy Williams, Johnny Kalifornia, Jamie Bull and Will Tramp. On from 9pm – 3am.
