PRIDE LOOMS
Friday, 6 July 2018
God help us, if it's not Pride again!

 

I'd first like to thank all those who cast their votes in our direction in The Golden Handbags: Polly was imobilised with childlike glee to be named best Host/Scene Personality; and Ian genuinely moved - for the first time in over a decade - with runner-up for Bar Steward. A selection of honourable mentions in other categories, and we were pretty chuffed with it.

 

Category winners again, Brighton Bear Weekend, had their usual stormer since I last wrote. Final fundraising numbers are to be announced next week, but I can reveal there is a £900 chunk from the door charge at Subline going in the pot. We certainly had a fantastic time, and I hope all those who traveled to Brighton for the Weekend would say the same. The organisers are still recovering, but we have Halloween and Christmas events pencilled in... more details as time draws nearer...

 

Not wishing to bog you down any further; time for the chronology-cum-calendar and Pride information!

 

Friday 13th - to Hell with your superstitious flim-flam - we have Dirty Tackle, the monthly sportswear night. Same details as usual: entry is £3 in Sports kit, £5 otherwise; doors open 10pm; DJ Screwpulous taking charge of sound, smoke, lights, and more.

 

Friday 20th is Filth, our regular, mixed, full-fetish party. This month the theme is Kinky Carnival; with Kitten Skye ringleader to the merry troupe of boys, girls, and others. Advance tickets are still available at £15 as I write, but go up to £20 very soon. Pay on the door, and it's £25... https://www.skiddle.com/whats-on/Brighton/Subline/Filth---Brighton-Fetish-Night---Kinky-Carnival/13262239/

 

Leathermen South are celebrating FOUR YEARS (hard to believe, I know) this month, too. They'll be out en masse on Saturday 28th. That night, anyone in full leather or rubber gear gets free entry, otherwise there's a £5 door charge. We're open from 10pm, and it's guaranteed a huge turnout.

 

The following night, Sunday 29th, is Cum In Your Pants. DJ Nude joins us for the monthly underwear party - the only COMPULSARY dress code of the month: doors open at 9pm, and after 10pm everybody must be in underwear. Come early to be sure of getting a locker: we ran out last month! Entry is £3 for members, £5 for non members.

 

Turning my calendar to August, the main event is coming, for better or for worse!

 

Before Pride proper kicks off, Wednesday 1st will still be the regular Gaymer meet up, Joystick Jockeys. Silly quizzes, Card Games, Retro console classics, Rock Band, and more; and entry is free.

 

Thursday 2nd, a touch more Pride-y, we have the return of Club Silencio. They've not been resting entirely on their laurels, with a phenomenal show at the Phoenix Gallery this Spring, but this is their first fixture at their dungeon domicile since Christmas... and what a return! Recently unearthed documents have revealed, on the eve of her Pride performance, exactly what happened to Britney in 2007... Doors open 8pm, and entry is £8

 

On Friday 3rd, we'll be charging regular prices on the door: £3 for members, £5 for non-members: and open from 10pm until 3:30am... you won't want to be out any later and spoil the rest of the weekend, surely..?! For want of anything more imaginative, the night is entitled "Somethin' Bruin..." - yeah, I should have thought of that before Bear Weekend, I know...

 

We are offering tickets for Saturday and Sunday NOW... priced at £6 per night for members, £9 per night for non-members. If (as every previous year) we are full to capacity, then ticketholders get to come to the front... there'll doubtless be a "ticketholder queue" but it'll put you ahead of all who don't have tickets. Get here early if you can and dodge that bullet! We're open from 9pm Saturday, and from 8pm Sunday; which usually coincides with the point where the Pride Village Party becomes just 'too much'...

 

If you don't have a ticket, door charge on each night is £7 for members, £10 for non members; so there's a teensy extra incentive to grab tickets now...

 

Later August: we have Filth on Friday 17th, Cum In Your Pants a week earlier than usual on Sunday 19th, and our Sundowner's Beach Party on Sunday 26th. I'll get onto those next time...

 

I hope to see you all soon!

P.S. An unfortunate upshot of the changes in Data Protection: it is now much harder for me to verify membership status, apart from the lovely folk who opted in and stayed on the database... if you aren't on my list, and don't bring your I.D. don't be surprised if you have to pay non-member prices...
