Glasgay 2014 kicked off this week and is also celebrating its 21st birthday. There’s still time to check out their exciting programme on till 15 November. And that’s what I’ll be doing.
Eat, art and a dash of sport
I’m going to start by combining two of my favourite hobbies – eating and art. I’ll add a little sport for good measure.
First up a visit to Rose and Grants Café for their delish Goat’s Cheese salad with a calorie-free dessert in the form of the Sporting Heads exhibition. The enticing showcase looks at the rise in sportsman come outing in recent times like Tom Daley and Gareth Thomas.
If I can manage a ticket, I’ll be getting down and dirty with the “Pope of Trash” and legendary filmmaker John Waters when he talks about his new book This Filthy World Vol 2.
His impressive back catalogue includes Hairspray, Pink Flamingos, Cry-Baby and Polyester – and for one night only he’ll be wowing at the O2 Academy on Friday 14 November. If I don’t get tickets, I’ll catch the 11:15pm showing of Cry-Baby at the GFT.
The perfect combination of art and classical music in the most unexpected and invigorating way.
There’s a huge selection of LGBT events and performances – truly something for everyone. So, go on – check it out.
