Every day of the week is special at Ku, but in December there’s two dates that are extra special even by their high standards and we asked the Boyz Award-winning host Stefanos to tell us all about World AIDS Day on Sunday 1st and Ku Group’s 24th Birthday on Saturday 7 December.
Ku World AIDS Day auction and Drag-a-thon for 56 Dean Street
Sunday 1 December, from 9pm
‘Our annual World AIDS Day auction will take place on Sunday 1st December at Ku Lisle Street and will be followed, for the first time, by a Drag-a-thon in Ku’s Klub. There will be 10 queens performing back to back from 9pm until extra late with hosts Lady Lloyd and Rebecca Tallon de Havilland. Drag performers include Holestar, Vanity von Glow, Honey Foxx, Herr, Meth, Tayce and more special guests to be announced.
We are delighted this year to be raising funds for a 56 Dean Street and Chelsea & Westminster trans-led health and wellbeing initiative called ‘Bootcamp’. Bootcamp is fronted by trans HIV activist Rebecca de Havilland and consists of a series of workshops designed to support and empower trans women and other trans femmes including advice on HIV prevention and living well with HIV.’
