Traditionally, weekends are when we all have a chance to take advantage of everything our bars and clubs have to offer. If you’re like me, you’ll know there’s more or less something going on every night of the week. It might be a quiz night like the ones they have at Dalston Superstore or the Retro Bar. It might be a mid-week contest like The Glory’s Lipsync 1000, or the Drag King contest Man Up!
All through August at The Glory, it’s Wonder Woman Wednesday where screenings of the original 70s Wonder Woman series are being shown with Jonbenet Blonde and ShayShay, who take turns to spin in that costume and let you win a free cocktail! Free to get in, screening at 8pm, on until midnight.
This week The KOC (Kings of Colour) Initiative: BOiBOX Takeover! at the Glory on Thursday 10th August calls for Drag Kings to ‘celebrate and nourish POC performers’ with an evening of cabaret from the stars of the scene.
