On Friday May 3rd, Perth, Wind and Fire will be the place to be. Perth’s first LGBTQ+ Club Night, organised by Perthshire Pride will feature a Drag Show. The night will be hosted by Scarlet Skylar Rae, Perth’s very own drag queen. She will be joined by some of Tayside’s hottest acts.
The show will be taking place at ‘The Venue’ in Perth, with performances from Scottish drag queens and other alternative performers being followed by a night of pride anthems and the best 80′ music. Perth Wind and Fire is organised by Scarlet and Don from the Perthshire Pride team.
Scarlet Skylar Rae, Drag Queen Performer, states: “It is amazing to launch Perth’s first LGBTQ+ Club night, as it is lovely for LGBTQ+ people in Perth and Kinross to have a safe night out and feel accepted. We have put together a great line up of drag acts, musicians and dance performers and hope it will be a fun and entertaining night for all! Everyone is welcome, especially our straight allies. All of the Pride team would love to say a massive thanks to The Venue for giving us support and helping us put on the event.”
Don, Communication coordinator, states: “We are extremely pleased that Scarlet Skylar Rae has joined Perthshire Pride as one of our trustees. Perth Wind and Fire is a project that was very dear to us since we introduced the first drag queen acts at the Perthshire Pride 2018’s After Party. There is not yet an established LGBT culture in Perth and we are hoping that this event will be a catalyst and allow us to organise more similar events in the future.”
All proceeds from the event will be donated to Perthshire Pride -the charity that organised Perth’s first Pride event. Perthshire Pride will be coming back this year on August 10th for a memorable celebration taking over the entire city!
