Fatty Acid

23rd November 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 4:00 am

Free – £10

FATTY ACID is the brand new in-house LGBTQIA+ night at Partisan! For trans and queer folks, and their friends.

Come down for a full night of big queer activities. Expect:

– Make up station and dressing room
– Speed friending
– Queer Craft Club
– Art! Performance! Drag!
– DJs till late: pop / indie / RnB / bangers

Running over two floors, with iconoclastic queer performance and DJs downstairs, and a relaxed social space upstairs (so you don’t have to huddle out in the smoking area in the middle of November to chat to your new best friend)


Violet Blonde
We’re so excited to have this Manchester drag LEGEND hosting the performance section of the night. She’s been everywhere, she’s a star, we love her.

Candice AKA Jumeau has performed with queer superstars Mykki Blanco and Big Freedia, and is one half of Brighton/London queer women’s night, Gal Pals. Expect queer pop party anthems, wildcards and deep cuts that make you wanna move. If you’re not dancing, you’re not paying attention

PLUS more DJs and performance acts TBA. If you’re a LBGTQIA+ performer who works in drag, comedy, or performance art and would like to be involved, please email [email protected]

No time to head home and get your glad-rags on? Or feel safer waiting to get to the party to dress how you want to? We’ll have a dressing up station – with some private booths (forget awkwardly changing clothes in the loos), and a make-up station, for beautiful creatures of all genders.

*We’re looking for donations of make-up, so people on any budget can have access to it
*Do you love giving make-up lessons or painting nails? Get in touch if you’d like to volunteer

M(.)ist Collective brings us some all-genders speed friending to start the evening, more details to come soon…

Moist is a Manchester based queer women’s art collective

Queer Craft Club is a monthly social at Partisan, which will be bringing communal zine making and other relaxing crafty activities to chat over, transforming the first floor into a quiet cosy queer space.
