Coming Up – MissFit Easter Weekender with Ms Dynamite

Adrian Everett

Club nights aimed at gay and bisexual girls tend to take a bit of a back seat in a London gay scene that caters primarily to men. With the closure of Candy, Ku Bar’s “iconic” all girls club earlier this year, things were looking a bit shaky for girls out on the scene.

So out of the darkness has come the fun and much needed MissFit, hosting regular nights at Stokey Stop in Stoke Newington. Run by blogger Effi Mai and Sandra D, a former resident DJ at Candy, MissFit presented their first huge event last month, the Lesbian Prom at Scala. They put on the Lesbian Prom because having to take boys to their high school prom was a bit of a let down and it seems like a lot of people agreed as it had a massive turnout.

The girls have big things planned for the Easter weekend. Kicking off the celebrations with a bang on Thursday night, they’ve invited none other than Dy-Na-Mi-Tee hitmaker and Mercury Award winner, Ms Dynamite to take the stage at Blueberry in Shoreditch. She’ll be supported by scene DJs Deejay D’afro (Holla London, Wild Life, Lyrically Challenged), Sandra D (Ruby Tuesdays, MissFit) and The Girls are, so it sounds like it’ll be a pretty wild night.

The Easter Weekender continues throughout the entire bank holiday weekend at Stokey Stop, with free entry if you don’t lose your ticket stub from Thursday in a haze of Tequila slammers. Dancing On My Own’s Bethany Babybel will be behind the decks on Friday night, playing the kind of danceable tunes you can sing along to. Dancing On My Own tends to fill up to capacity as soon as the doors open so this is probably going to be a busy one.

Saturday and Sunday nights will bring you two more nights with special guests at Stokey Stop, if you haven’t passed out in a pizza box from Friday and Saturday (drink responsibly everyone!).

Tickets for Thursday night that guarantee entry and queue jump are available here, or you could risk it on the door for £16. Girls and their guests are welcome at MissFit events.

Let’s just remind ourselves of the early 2000s amazingness that is Ms Dynamite:
