Boyz Awards 2017: The winners are announced at the Two Brewers

Last Wednesday the great and good of London’s gay scene came together at the Two Brewers to find out who won what at this year’s Boyz Awards. Hosted by the fantastic Lola Lasagne, who was on hilarious form, there were a few surprises – but no wrong envelopes – as the winners were revealed. Plus we were treated to a performance by reigning Drag Idol winner Vileda Moppe and after the ceremony some brilliant cabaret from Mary Mac. Congratulations to all the winners and huge thanks to Lola, DJ Demon and the entire Two Brewers team for making it such a fun night. Photos by Chris Jepson.
