The Glory is closing ! While we are excited for the new beginnings, we are weeping for our mother’s womb, where it all started, where Harem of No One was founded. And as you know, us SWANA people, we are very emotional about our mothers and about leaving. So we are going to be dramatic about it, sorry not sorry.
‘Gullüm’ is a very specific word from the queer slang language of Turkey: Lubunca. It means the laughs and the fun that you have with your chosen family at the darkest of times, when there seems to be no hope. It comes from the strength of solidarity and the resistance towards the struggles that we regularly face and how we ‘Make a Ball’ out of it. We are living through one of the bleakest periods of our times and it’s time we find our resistance inside and make a Gullüm out of it, to bid our farewell and our gratitude in the best way we know: by throwing one final amazing show! We are going to be dramatic and reminisce the best moments of Harem of No One at this legendary mecca of drag cabaret scene of East London.
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.
