This landed in my inbox yesterday. It’s so lovely I had to share it.
I just wanted to thank you. To thank you a lot, in fact. I’m from Germany and i just came back from a week in London with some friends, a week that included tuesday’s Bar Wotever. It was my second time at RVT (last was in 2011, when a friend, who had lived in London for some time, recommended it…well, “recommended”…I think she said something like “if you’re there tuesday, you have have have have have to go to Bar Wotever, I will judge you if you don’t and you’ll be sorry if you don’t!!!!!” so of course we came) and the first time, I was so stoked that I insisted that we had to book our vacation this time to be around a tuesday. And so we were there this tuesday and I realized, again, that I love Bar Wotever really really much. Aside from the spectacular stage programm I feel like you’ve created a room where everybody can feel welcome, no matter who they are, what they are, how they are (as long as they’re cool). A place where everybody can truly be themselves. I love how many really different people there are at a wotever-evening and everybody is cool with that. For me, that’s what I wished the world was always like. A little utopia. I am part of a little queer-feminist group in Germany, we organized a ladyfest and some concerts and partys around the year and Bar Wotever is something like…the ideal we wish to accomplish. Sadly, queer partys in Germany are not nearly like that, even if we try. Better than “normal” parties, of course, but still. Why I tell you this? Because your little utopia gives me something to dream about, a goal maybe. Just to know that a place like this is possible gives me strength for keeping the work up.
So, basically, I just wanted to show my enthusiasm and to thank you very, very, very much for creating this amazing night. I love it so much and I can’t wait to be back in London, on a tuesday, of course!
All the best from Germany and again: thank you very much!’ T
Thank You T, and specially Thank You for sharing your thoughts with us. Having people like you coming to our events makes it all worth it! And that you do your own parties is brilliant! Please stay in touch and see you again soon. At Bar Wotever! x
