The Big Gay 10K hits London on 30 September, raising money to
support charities PACE and London Friend, which both provide
invaluable mental health support for the London LGBT community. To
celebrate this day of fundraising, loads of really amazing acts
have come together to make sure you have a day to remember.
Make your way down to the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens where you will
be treated to sets by several of the most talented female stand up
comedians around. Zoe Lyons, the award winning British comedian you
might recognise from her appearances on Mock the Week, will be
there and so will Bethany Black. Often labelled as "Britain's only
goth, lesbian, transgender stand-up comedian," Bethany is known for
her predilection for dark humour. Also joining the line up is Jen
Brister, a risqué yet undoubtedly hilarious stand up comedian and
woman of many talents, as she also presents several shows on BBC 6
Music and performs with sketch comedy group Loose Connection.
There will also be a great range of musical talent on display,
including all-girl band Eeek - you might have seen them at L Fest -
showcasing their lovely 'soul folk' sound. Bubbly alt folk singer
Laura Catlow will be there, singing modern ironic gems such as 'If
There Is Anything More Soul Destroying Than Working In Telesales, I
Don't Want To Know About It,' or you might know her from the
uncannily accurate YouTube hit 'Shit Straight Girls Say To
Human powerhouse Lucie Burns, (otherwise known as Lazy Hammock or
Hermione) will also take to the stage. The musician come DJ come
collaborator with artists such as Filthy Rich, Just Jack and Freq
Nasty will be taking a day out of her hectic schedule to perform
her impressive Sade-esque vocals for us all.
Electro-soul band Heads Hearts will also be about, along with alt.
performance artist Scottee, and a range of acts put on by the Royal
Vauxhall Tavern and queer collective Wotever. Fun!
And to top it all off, there will also be a drag tarot reader,
what more could you possibly want?
