London Pride Cabaret Guide
HAPPY PRIDE! For me this year’s Pride is more pertinent than ever considering recent events; of course every year we should be standing tall and proud, celebrating who we are, being visible in the face of bigotry that sadly still lurks like a dark cloud over what we’ve come to assume is civilised and progressive times. Drag queens and gender-benders have always been at the forefront of the Pride movement, so I implore you to spread the love, support our bloody brilliant cabaret venues and ENJOY!
5 Shows You Should See This Summer
It’s that time of the year when the sun pops out from beneath the clouds for a few days, and we all get dead excited. As well as the various Pride events taking place anywhere there’s a post office, there are some cracking shows coming up.

Now ingrained in the seasonal cabaret and theatre schedule, adult pantos offer an alternative to the mainstream, more sanitised productions that take place in every major city and town in the UK.
Tis’ the season to be (extra) CAMP and (extra) QUEER, so before you go booking tickets to see Jeanette Krankie or Ann Widdecombe make a tit of themselves dancing to S Club 7 in a panto in zone 6, check out Jason Reid’s ultimate guide to the scene’s top seasonal shows across the capital. From adult panto, to spoken word, via avant garde, there’s something for everyone out there...
Oh Danny Boy!
The newly crowned winner of this year’s Drag Idol and the most talked about act to hit the scene in some time, Danny Beard, is a fascinating character. The competition itself has seen somewhat of a queer revolution of late with both LoUis Cyfer and now Danny taking the title. Giving his first full interview post Drag Idol, the man behind Danny spoke to Jason Reid this week...
