Friday 27th November: Push The Button 5th Birthday

Yes! The iconic poptastic spectacular has been around for five years! Longer than Heidi Range’s pop career, but shorter than Keisha Buchanan spends getting her hair done. A lot’s happened in five years. We witnessed rise of Demi Lovato from basic bitch to pop princess. We witnessed the fall of Katy Perry from pop princess to basic bitch. And we witnessed Loreen become ICONIC. Anyway, go along to Push The Button at the RVT. There’s name badges. There’s a snow machine. And there’s more pop hits than you can shake a Nadine Coyle solo album at!

The Royal Vauxhall Tavern, 372 Kennington Lane, SE11 5HY. 9pm – 3am. £8 entry. 


Friday 27th November: A:M

This city is amazing. Glittering and huge and expensive and drunk and AMAZING. One of the amazing things about it is that there’s a place you can go clubbing for twelve hours. Every week. It’s OrangeNation’s A:M! The ultimate clubbing experience. Dive in.

Protocol London, 6 South Lambeth Place, SW8 1SP. 11pm – 11am. £8 adv tickets. 


Friday 27th November: Pleased, Official Fringe! After Party

It’s hot. It’s fuzzy. It’s Hot Fuzz! A gay dance night at the infamous, inimitable RVT for burly beardy men and their admirers. We LOVE a beard. And a bit of chest hair. It’s lovely in this increasingly chilly weather. A roaring fire. A gorgeous chalice of expensive red wine. Nigella on the telly. Eating a lovely mince pie. Whilst getting rimmed by someone with a beard. WHAT? No. We didn’t say that. Sorry. Quick. Nope. LOOK BEHIND YOU IT’S NICOLA ROBERTS, AND SHE’S GOT A GUN *runs away*.

Dalston Superstore, 117 Kingsland High Street, E8 2PB. 9pm – 4am. Free before 11pm, £5 after. 


Friday 27th November: Lobotomy Room

The concept for Lobotomy Room is totes gorge. Punk, gay, rockabilly, slut. Think a guy with a green Mohawk called Gary shagging you by the bins behind Beyond Retro whilst swigging a bottle of Apple Sourz. So QT! Hashtag cockabilly. It’s queer and it’s crazy, and that is more than enough for us. Apparently it involves forbidden voodoo rites and “adult situations”. You’d best bring a live chicken with you. JUST IN CASE EH? *wink wink*

Fontaine’s, 176 Stoke Newington Road, N16 7UY.  10pm – 2am. Free entry.


Saturday 28th November: Handsome

Those dashing, dastardly, HANDSOME boys are back at East London’s premier gay mecca slash glitter hole slash bangin’ boom box, East Bloc! Handsome is always a brain-drainingly, sneaker-spatteringly, shirt-soakingly good night out. We can’t remember the last one, which means it MUST have been good. This time round we’ve got
K Alexi and DJ Mistamaker, both super iconic scene DJs! So get on it, get going, get handsome, and GET. A. FUCKING. GRIP.

East Bloc, 217 City Road, EC1V 1JN. 10:30pm – 6am. £5 before 12, £10 after. 


Saturday 28th November: Glitterbomb

BOOM! Glitterbomb has cascaded onto Shadow Lounge in a shower of shimmering sexiness! No labels! No inhibitions! No smoking! That’s not true, you can smoke if you want, in the smoking area. Hooray! They do have a strict dress code though; Dress to kill. If you don’t look like you’ve just fallen out of an Uber with Kate Moss, you will not be allowed in! It’s glitz and glamour. It’s Studio 54. It’s disco damage. It’s Glitterbomb!

The Shadow Lounge, W1F 0RF. 10pm – 3am. 


Saturday 28th November: Gay Garage

Gay Garage is back at The Glory after its INSANE first installment, which saw hoards of homo (and hetero) music lovers descend like conceptually cool flying monkeys (yes, a Wizard of Oz reference, DON’T mention the Wicked Witch of The West, we’ll just starting going on about John Sizzle again). Anyway Gay Garage CEMENTED itself at the FOREFRONT of East London’s clubbing scene. It really did. And our caps lock isn’t broken, we’re doing it for EMPHASIS.

The Glory, 281 Kingsland Road, E2 8AS. 8pm – 2am. Free before 9pm, £5 after. 


Saturday 28th November: R&She Missy Elliott Special

Yes! Amazing! Stickin’ out your TOOONNGGUE girl, but ya know you’re too young! Missy Elliott is the woman of the hour. That SONG. It’s just so good! So R&She are doing a Missy Elliott special, where they’re gonna play loads of songs by Missy Elliott. Including Sock It 2 Me, which we think is about fisting. But that’s fine. Anyway. R&She are great, they’ll also be playing stuff by your fave hip-hop and R&B divas. Kelis. Ciara. Amerie. Pussycat Dolls. Remember Beep? Tune!

Tipsy, 20 Stoke Newington Road, N16 7XN. 9pm – 3am. Free before 10pm, £6 after. 


Saturday 28th November: W:E Party Fifth Birthday

Jesus christ, it’s WE’s fifth birthday too?! Clearly there was something in the water in 2010. Glitter maybe. Or semen. Anyway to celebrate, gay clubbing leviathans WE are throwing a massive, muscled, mega party at the Electric in Brixton. The Electric’s an awesome venue, and you can guarantee that the boys at WE, along with the Orange Nation team, will totes make the most of it. If you haven’t heard of WE parties, or been to one before; they’re basically like a gay night would be if Thor was doing their PR. Take from that what you will. They’re just celestially amazing basically. With DJ sets from Ana Paula, Steve Pitron, Zach Burns, Paul Heron and more.

Electric Brixton, Town Hall Parade, SW2 1RJ. 11pm onwards. Tickets £16.50.


Sunday 29th November: Beyond feat RAE

It’s the after party to the WE party! If you’ve had enough Red Bulls to make it through, you’re in for a treat! It’s at world famous clubbing mecca Ministry of Sound, whose speakers will blow your EARS off (not literally, that’d be messy). Their special guest is inimitable RAE who’ll be bringing her bangin’ beats, as well as superstar scene DJs Tom Stephan and Fat Tony. That Chrissy Darling will be doing the door too, looking like a cross between a xenomorph and a 1960’s carpet.

Ministry of Sound, 103 Gaunt Street, SE1 6DP. From 5am. Tickets £12.10.
