Join us for an extraordinary night of fabulousness at the highly anticipated return of Devianza Cabaret!
In the wake of the election of the most far-right government in Italy since fascism, the rights of LGBTQIA+ individuals have come under threat. It is in this context that our Cabaret show was born – to unite and empower through performance art and entertainment, while raising funds for our community back in our home country.
In that spirit, this edition aims to celebrate Pride. Category is: ITALIAN GAY ICONS
From Raffaella Carrà, a true trailblazer, who was using her platform as a singer, actress, and television presenter to champion LGBTQIA+ rights at a time when it was still considered taboo, to Donatella Rettore fearlessly celebrating individuality, queer expression, and sexual liberation through her lyrics and performances, to modern day icons who continue to break barriers and challenge stereotypes, prepare to be dazzled by a night of tributes from an exceptional all-Italian lineup of Drag and Burlesque performers- with a signature sprinkle of political satire, of course.
As Devianza was first born as a fundraiser event, in addition to the incredible performances, there will be an opportunity on the night to donate to a chosen charity (TBC), dedicated to supporting and advocating for LGBTQIA+ rights in Italy.
THIS SHOW IS IN THE BASEMENT
Please note The Glory is a queer venue run by queer people, for queer people and their allies. We operate a zero-tolerance policy towards homophobia, transphobia, racism, misogyny and discrimination of any kind. Be respectful or you will be asked to leave. Strictly no office, hen or stag parties allowed.
The Glory is a very old building with pre-existing accessibility issues and while we’ve strived to make the space user friendly, there is no ‘easy’ wheelchair accessibility to all areas of the venue.
MAIN BAR ACCESSIBILITY:
The main bar is accessible, though the toilets are up a flight of 3 stairs with a handrail. Wheelchairs cannot access the toilets however. There is a local restaurant a few doors down who have an accessible toilet that they are happy for our customers to use.
To access shows in the basement there is a narrow flight of 12 stairs with a handrail.
The main bar has plenty of seats and tables. Ticketed shows are seated unless otherwise stated.
