When Wotever World started Queer Fayre, it had no idea how successful the plucky little market for home-made queer goods would be. And yet as the community files through the storied spaces of the Royal Vauxhall Tavern again on Saturday, 5 November, it’s obvious that a need has been met that keeps being relevant, more than half a decade since it was first run there.
Wotever World is one of the most community minded variety and event organisers in London, and the community really need a space to engage and exchange, run for us and by us! It’s a sad reality that disproportionately many London queers are barely scraping by, and being able to make and sell products is a vital lifeline for many.
But it’s also a bustling place to exchange ideas, come up with new things to make and pick up the cool objects we never knew we needed from our fellow LGBTQ people. From non-binary clothing to jars of jam, from humorous fetish accessories to whimsical postcards, this place is as mixed up and welcoming as the community needs it to be.

Bourgeois Boheme – Show Casing and Sell some of their Vegan Shoes
