XXL White Party this Saturday
The White Party theme is a classic club concept, and there’s something rather fabulous about seeing everyone in a club decked out under the UV lights in white shorts, vests or whatever. This Saturday (30 Jun) it’s the turn of the bears, blokes and hunks at Pulse to dress up at the XXL White Party where those gorgeous Hoxton Whores will be joining the resident DJs to rock the dancefloors and our world.

We LOVE Circa The Club
Some people will tell you the LGBT+ scene is in decline – well, those Moaning Myrtles have obviously not been to the gorgeous new Circa: The Club, which opened its shimmering doors two weekends ago and has been packed every Friday and Saturday since. It’s a jaw-dropping, ever-so-funky space with amazing music. Treat yourself, you know you want to.
Myra at the White Swan
This Saturday (30 Jun) the unsinkable and frankly unquenchable Myra DuBois will be carving out her hour on the stage at the White Swan in Limehouse. Although the Rotherham songbird has guested at the much-loved venue before, this is her first full show there, so don’t miss out.
Danny Beard at the Old Ship

Laughs galore at the George and Dragon

And on Sunday you get three amazing acts with Dave Lynn, Mary Mac and Miss Jason.
Peter Pansexual at Her Upstairs
If you’ve been gagging to shout “He’s behind you!” since New Year then the gang at Her Upstairs have the answer. Taking flight this Friday (29 Jun) is Peter Pansexual, described as ‘a VERY crude summer panto’ brought to us by writer and director Gareth Joyner and starring Myra DuBois as Captain Shook, Sooz Kemper as Peter, Jim Lavender as Smee, Cheryl Hole as Skankerbell, Ophelia Love as Michael and more. Forget everything you thought you knew about Neverland with this childishly unabashed two-fingered tale of the boy that wouldn’t grow up. It’s on until Friday 6 July and tickets are on sale at outsavvy.com
The Penetration Play at Above The Stag
Above The Stag, the UK’s only full time LGBT+ theatre, is happily ensconced in its swish new home on the Albert Embankment that comes with a second performance space as well as the main theatre. The Penetration Play is the first production in the new area and the first lesbian play ATS have staged in its 10 year history. It is a dark comedy by Winter Miller that has been described by The New York Times as a ‘cracklingly funny – an erotically charged comedy about the flexibility of sexual identity.’ It’s on until 21 July and you can book tickets at abovethestag.com
Subline Brighton’s Golden Handbag Afterparty
