Last years PRIDE was amazing as TRANNYSHACK UK had a float in the parade for the first time. I think we really brightened it up too with a gaggle of amazing trannys , Boy George and the odd colourfull hanger on to boot.
It was followed , for me , by a stint hosting the KU BAR STAGE in Leicester Square. The sun was shining and the acts first class and a wonderfull afternoon was had by all !
This year Gary Henshaw the owner of KU has asked me to organise and arrange the programming for the stage , aswell as host it.
I have never had carte blanche to do anything quite as high profile as this before and its a wonderfull opportunity to put together a collection of artists who represent the gay community and who want to entertain us too !
Over the last year , through my work at KINKY KABARET i have met many West End performers whose talent was immense and obvious. I really want to incorporate some of them into the line up of stage talent and try and add a bit of "va va voom" to a stage that has always been a big hit with the hundreds of thousands of gay people who come out to play and be seen on an important day in our calendar. Nearly everyone i have approached so far has jumped at the chance and the lineup is looking diverse and rather good so far ! Of course there will be scene stalwarts aplenty and some of the KU dj's will get a chance to show us their mettle , as scene entertainment is a must , alongside the more mainstream acts. There will also be a few high profile celebs strutting their stuff. So far no one has turned me down. I wont be hogging the stage as host either. Its going to be packaged out to our favourite scene stars so no one person will steal the limelight on a day thats about us ALL. I am sure it will all pull together on the day and give everyone something they will like along the way. I cant wait !!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY !
