Event Navigation

Three hand drawn figures are placed in the centre of a pink poster with deep blue text below that says ‘ A Reyt Queer Extravaganza’. The three figures vary in gender presentation, one is a Black femme with long black hair wearing small blue shorts and top with ribbon sashaying on her hips. Another is a Black masculine presenting woman with short hair wearing dark shorts, white tee and waistcoat. The third figure is an androgynous white person with short blue hair. They wear a black waist corset and baggy trousers with a cropped purple jacket.

Andro & Eve and Ghetto Fabulous are collaborating on a huge night of queer performance!

Get ready for a night like no other with queer performance from across the North of England, hosted by Rikki Beadle Blair.

Gag on the lewks, the lip-syncing and go crazy for the choreography. Community participants, professional queer collectives and fierce individual performers from across the North, will take to the catwalk for this very special event at Sheffield’s iconic venue The Leadmill.

Put on your most extravagant party lewks, whatever that means to you, and come celebrate in the queer joy!
