|Drag Phenomenon Lady Lloyd Launches Leeds' Latest Gay Night!|
|Drag superstar, Lady Lloyd, is coming to Leeds to launch the city's newest gay night. The gender-bending DJ will be opening Blasphemy at Religion nightclub on Wednesday the 28th November.|
|With Federation having gone weekly, Blasphemy will be the only monthly gay clubbing experience in Leeds. Aimed at a cocksure crowd of 18 plus gay boys and queer girls, Blasphemy promises to put some glamorous decadence and sinful excess back into the city's gay scene.
Set in the super plush surroundings of Religion nightclub on Lower Briggate, Blasphemy will play a beat-grinding mix of house, pop, electro and new wave.
"More than anything, we want Blasphemy to be fun, but it's going to be cutting edge too." says promoter Liam Keogh. "We'll be bringing in the hottest DJs from around the country, starting with Drag Phenomenon Lady Lloyd. We want to create a night which people dress up for, where they can dance along to the music and, most importantly, where they can meet and get off with hot boys and girls. Blasphemy will bring eye-linered emos, skinny indie boys, fashionistas, hardcore clubbers, trannies and super trendy guys together under one roof on a monthly basis."
"We've taken inspiration from London, where queer nights have become a benchmark of clubbing excellence, attracting global celebs and the capital's It crowd in equal measure. The Leeds gay scene doesn't have much excitement to offer anymore; it just churns out the same nights week in week out. We want to bring the coolest elements of the capital's gay scene to Leeds, to create events that can be looked forward to every month."
"Blasphemy will be a night of sin and excess for the city's hottest gay boys and queer girls. Super cool DJ Lady Lloyd will be presiding over the opening night. The launch will be unmissable."
Lady Lloyd became a London icon by ditching drag's tacky image and turning it into a fashion statement, revolutionising it by replacing sequined outfits with chic designer dresses. She's already a huge name on the capital's queer clubbing circuit, where she hosts and runs cult gay nights like Tranny Shack and Popstarz. Now with a career in music and television about to launch her into the country's subconscious, Lloyd's breaking out of the big city and taking her unique DJing skills nationwide.
Lady Lloyd is also currently recording an album in London with Boy George to be released next year.
