Brighton drag queen roasted to raise money for Terrence Higgins Trust

A group of Brighton’s top drag artists, in association with Refire Events, are organising a Comedy Roast fundraiser in aid of HIV and sexual health charity Terrence Higgins Trust (THT). The event is taking place at Charles Street Bar, Marine Parade, on Wednesday 25th May from 7:30pm.

The Comedy Roast, hosted by Cassidy Connors, will see Maisie Trollette, grande dame of the drag circuit, roasted by three of her closest friends, Dave Lynn, Miss Jason and Lola Lasagne. During what is set to be a lively event, the flamboyant stars will share personal, risqué and never heard before stories… all in the name of entertainment of course.

Admission is free, but guests will be encouraged to make donations on the night.

Ross Boseley, Health Promotion Co-ordinator for THT in Brighton, said: “It’s great to see people from the local community organising fundraising events for THT and acknowledging the work that we do locally. Every penny raised will help provide much needed services to people living with HIV in the local area. We are looking forward to what promises to be an entertaining evening for all who come along.”
