Great Write up for Wotever Iceland

wotever-iceland

Gay Iceland wrote a lovely pice about Wotever Iceland this month

‘Alda feels that this type of venue is needed here. “Homosexuality is at a socially acceptable level in Iceland and there is certain entertainment and venues aimed towards that group. But if you are somehow out of the norm you don’t have anywhere to go. At the Wotever nights we create a safe space where people can come and be themselves,” says Alda and we go on to talk about this idea of the safe space……’

We and Mx Vivian Bond

We’ve been fans since forever of Mx Vivian Bond… And we totally fell head over heels by their role and performance in SHORTBUS… Many kindly said that Bar Wotever and what we do at Wotever World reminded them of the scenes and set created in that film…

A few years ago we were invited to take part of the same event as the Non Binary Icon Mx Vivian Bond and we gave them one of our I AM WOTEVER Badges…. They kindly posed for a photo.

This week we hosted our Non Binary cabaret at The Glory and this is what they tweeted…

So, now our dream is to actually invite and welcome Mx Vivian Bond to our stage.. Some time, and somewhere.

Respect & Love

And Keep being Visible!

Doing Camden Fringe – Bra Wotever

So, the one off show I do at Camden Fringe is all about what why and how… I share stories from all these years with Wotever. … And you get to hear why this show is called Bra Wotever.

‘Today, thirteen years ago I did something that forever would change my life. Back then I thought I only did one little party – little did I know that all these years later I keep on doing parties, shows and work with all these amazingly creative and fab people in London and elsewhere! Mindblowingly Happy that I dared, and I’m amazed how much I still Love doing it! Feeling blessed indeed.’ My Facebook status today

We Love RVT!

RVTAs of 9 September 2015, the RVT became the first building in the nation to be listed for its place in LGBTQ history and heritage.

It’s a brilliant recognition of the Tavern’s unique role in our country’s story, and also a vital protection against radical redevelopment.

The Department for Culture, Media and Sport confirmed the designation, which had been recommended by Historic England (formerly English Heritage).

Amy Lamé, co-founder and host of long-running RVT night Duckie, said:

“The listing is a fantastic milestone for our community and a victory against the odds for our beloved pub. We look forward to continuing our work to ensure the RVT remains a vibrant space of LGBTQ community and culture for generations to come. The RVT now joins New York’s Stonewall Inn, home of the gay liberation movement, in being officially recognised for its contribution to social history. We thank our many, many supporters from across London and further afield.”

The Guardian wrote about it and included a video very much filmed at Bar Wotever….

One Queer Space saved and home to our Tuesday nights!

WE LOVE RVT! 

 

 

 

Glory Wotever

Last Glory Wotever  we did in early May was a cavalcade Poetry, Power and Politics, it was a Non Binary Cabaret and it all was brought by Great Acts. Handpicked and invited were some of our favourites, Dr Woof, The Phoenix, johnsmith, Maxi More, SJ Soulist, Baby Lame and Frankie Sinatra

This is what qx magazine said about the event:

‘The entire night was all embracing: in a scene that can be predominately focused on white, cis-gender gay men, to find a place where being Wotever is celebrated is something to be triumphant about. BRAVA.’ Read the whole review

Happy Tshirt Shopping!Everyone asked for it – Now it’s here!

Wotever World is a Queer Art & Culture community
Since the start in 2003 we have created meeting spaces, shows, platforms and places for LGBTQ people & friends on a regular basis, mainly in London, but also all over Europe.

People who visited us and our events sometimes asked if we had any merchandise they could buy for themselves, or bring back home for friends and lovers… as memorabilia.

Last year, I designed the first ‘I am Wotever’ Tshirt and printed a few that I gave to crew and performers. It became very popular and many asked where they could get one too…. AND NOW YOU CAN!!

Wotever Stockholm: Twist and Swirl!

14 June, 20-01
Bonden Bar, Bondegatan 1c, Stockholm 
FREE ENTRY all night!

Wotever in June is all about twisting, swirling and twirling, and maybe dirty dancing! Not one, not two, but three fabulous DJs will tonight provide the soundtrack for your tangos, lambadas, slowdances and head banging. Think of the fabulous glitter of the ballroom queens, or skin tight body suits of the modern dancers. Think of well-choreographed numbers with top hats and canes, or grinding hips to heavy beats. Or just come as you are and dance like no one is watching!

Strutting their stuff on stage tonight is none other than the delectable and delightful Miss Meadows, showing us why Diamonds are indeed a girl’s best friend. In fine company, we have Kim, doing his turn by showing us his stand up in style. And finally Josephine will be popping and locking and trying to figure out how to actually dance to dubstep for your delight and amusement.

Your DJs for the night also offer and unique spin of the turntable, as we introduce newcomer DJ Raven Star, alongside Max who will be joined with a guest appearance by the Sweaty Betty’s dancing ensemble. And finally to play us into the wee hours, the big cheese themselves, Ingo all the way from London, will rock your socks right off!

As always, all of this is completely FREE entry all night long at the Bonden Bar. Wotever is an open space where encourage everyone to come as they are or want to be. This means no dress code (though we adore you to dress up), and no door policy (anyone and everyone is welcome). However, everyone is asked to respect everyone’s right to be there and to be as fabulous as they are.

Wotever is a space that encourages play and innovation, and we are very excited that tonight features some brand new artists that we are very proud to present to you. However, if you are keen to strut your stuff on stage or provide the soundtrack for our lives, simply get in touch and we will help you to show off your fabulous selves!
