Isle of Wight Pride
This Saturday (21 Jul) the second annual Isle of Wight Pride happens on the sun drenched island just off the South Coast. The fun starts as soon as you step off the ferry with a parachute display at 11am followed by the Parade at midday. The main event is on Ryde Harbour Beach and will have a funfair, stalls and different stages with loads of acts of all different kinds including a performance by Conchita Wurst. Last year’s event was loads of fun and this looks like being even better. Go to the website at iwpride.org for more details including how easy it is to get from London to the island.
Picture this: it’s Saturday night, and you’re in a hot, dark place surrounded by frisky bears and wood. The only thing to do is get out your chopper and shout ‘Timber!’ This Saturday (21 Jul) all this and more will come true at Pulse as it’s XXL Lumberjack when DJ Fat Tony is back alongside residents Paul Morrell, Alex Logan, David Robson and Joe Egg to keep the blokes, bears and hotties dancing.
Cabaret in Greenwich
We love the George and Dragon in Greenwich where The Duchess and her minions always have something fun on offer.

On Sunday you get three bundles of joy with Dave Lynn, Mary Mac and Miss Jason all bringing the mirth and music.
It’s all happening at The RVT
As always it’s a glorious mixed buffet of tasty treats at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern this weekend.

On Friday there’s two events, starting at 7pm with Barbara Brownskirt previewing her Edinburgh show Who Do You Think You Are? And that’s followed at 10pm by the sexy dudes and cheeky chaps at Beefmince for beary clubbing fun. Saturday is, of course, the glorious Duckie and at Sunday Social it’s the one and only Myra DuBois.
