06/05/2016: The Glory’s truly vers basement was transformed on Friday night into an intimate theatre, hosting Wotever World’s Non-Binary cabaret.
For those of you who don’t know, Wotever is a weekly queer cabaret and community held every Tuesday night at the RVT for well over 10 years. Ingo, a founder of Wotever, hosted the evening’s acts, which stretched over an hour and a half, and left us all a flutter with queer potential.
The show was incredibly diverse, featuring a rapper, singers, lipsynch, and an incredible spoken word from The Phoenix. My highlight of the show was a devastatingly beautiful and haunting performance from last year’s winner of Man Up, johnsmith.
Floaty scene sweetheart Maxi More, of the Family Fierce, was another standout: presenting her Poetry Grind, consisting of found text from that little orange app and transitioning into a triumphant lipsynch evangelizing the power of queer pubs.
The party continued after the cabaret, with Wotever’s Hug the DJ, DJ Malteser and Jo the Bunny spinning only the best for the rest of the night.
The entire night was all embracing: in a scene that can be predominately focused on white, cis-gender gay men, to find a place where being Wotever is celebrated is something to be triumphant about. BRAVA.We cannot display this gallery
