Would you have sex with this man?

Would you have sex with this man?

It’s the weekend. You are out in a club… you get drunk… you’re having jokes with your mates… and you meet a hot guy. In fact, a really hot guy. Like the one in the photo here. One thing leads to another and it turns out you are both massive Britney fans. The next thing you know you are getting all ‘Gimme More’ on him and you’re back at his place… with no condoms. You get naked, and one thing leads to another and you make the mistake of having unprotected sex. You know you shouldn’t do it, but you have now. How do you know what his HIV status is? You took a chance. He might of course be negative. But he might also be positive. Knowing your status could save your life.
GET TESTED!
G-A-Y Bar (30 Old Compton Street, Soho) will be hosting its annual testing service on World AIDS Day, Monday 1st December from midday-9pm. Sexual health clinic 56 Dean Street will be on hand with all their expertise and you can receive your results in private and with the full support of the clinic’s fully trained staff. G-A-Y will donate £10 to the Elton John AIDS Foundation for every person that tests.
• Plus, the G-A-Y Balloon Release Memorial at 10pm is an opportunity to remember anyone you’ve lost, not just to HIV/AIDS. Buy a bio-degradable balloon G-A-Y Bar reception and write the name of someone you would like to remember on it.

Jacqui Potato’s Top 100 Drag Names -Part 2

Jacqui Potato’s Top 100 Drag Names -Part 2

After much deliberation, vodka and far too many weekends spent propping up the bar at almost every club and bar in East London, Jacqui Potato has gathered the most popular drag titles into a nifty list of 100 for QX! There was much musing, mulling and meandering over the thousands of suggestions for drag queen names as first appeared on the Facebook DRAG NAMES!!!!!!!!!!!! group to finally whittle them down to these awesome bewigged monikers…

Frost is Coming!

Frost is Coming!

Out on the Dock presents Frost Festival is the winter re-interpretation of this year’s mega successful Summer Rites event. Returning to the fabulous Tobacco Docks once more, this time it takes over the basement level vaults, with each area representing a different sound and aspect of the gay scene in London. What clubs are involved? Well, how about Trade, Misfits, Bootylicious, Dish and Blocheads to name but a few. Joining them will be a collection of the biggest clubs that rocked the scene in years gone by such as Crash, Ghetto and Wig Out. With nine rooms and over 35 DJs, it’s going to set winter ablaze. Five of the DJs spill the top three tunes that you’ll be shakin’ that ass to on the night…
