18-21/04/14: With all the shiny adverts, bells and whistles that accompany the arrival to our shores of various visiting continental mega clubs, it is very easy to become complacent and forget just how lucky we are to have the breadth and diversity of permanent gay venues right here in the city that are open day-in and day-out, come rain or shine.

Manbar

14/12/13: Everybody knows someone effected by cancer. And Cancer is a Drag is a brilliant idea from Diva Vera, who has dealt with cancer twice now, to raise money and support people living with cancer, because people living with it aren’t necessarily earning money so they need a little help to get them buy during treatment.

06/10/13: There is nothing particularly restful about Sundays out there in cabaret-land.
