Glitterati

“The closure of The Dragon, and the curtain closing on The Panti Show both had a big impact on the community.” So says, Beth Hayden, founding member of Glitter HOLE, a gang of performers who mix their response to a percieved lack of drag diversity with radical queer politics. So what we can expect from the inauguaral Glitter HOLE Fringe show, The Fianna Fellatio Party?

Glitter HOLE is a queer performance space, a DIY drag collective and a bit of a laugh. It is a response to my own frustration over the lack of diverse, non-corporate queer events taking place in Dublin and an attempt to establish a bit of variety in an often stale and exclusionary queer nightlife scene. Above all that, it is an excuse for my friends and to dress up and show off.

About GCN

Our cover star, quintessential queen, Chanel is just one of the Dublin drag queens photographed by the up and coming to Steven Peice for our photo essay, ‘The Dreamers’. “I feel that in a way drag has always been seen as a goofy entertainment, and there’s no real focus on how these men are actually transforming themselves into fully realised fantasies,” Steven says, and we couldn’t agree more. Elsewhere we get a queer flava of what’s on offer in both the Fringe and Dublin Theatre Festivals this year, we ponder why TERFs (trans-exclusionary radical feminists) have not made it across the water from England to our fair shores, people who identify under the plus in LGBT+ talk to us about the need to accept expanding queer identities, and we remember the mega-gay anthem that was Cher’s ‘Believe’. It’s a jam-packed issue, of that there can be no doubt!
