THE PARTY DON’T STOP As LGBT+ History Month draws to a close for another year, we MARCH (sorry) straight into another packed month of queer events. First up, having firmly established that good things come in small packages, is community arts venue DINA. Check out their comedy night, Comedy & Babybels (Thu 3 Mar), featuring scouse comedian Alex Maureen, who isn’t afraid to be blunt and give you descriptions of gay life with puns muckier than the Mersey itself. The night will be hosted by Andy Mitchell, best known for his friendship with Joe Exotic, and features comedians Dean Coughlin, Aiden Pyne and Emma Crossland. Also taking to the DINA stage this month is Yorkshire lesbian icon and one-woman cabaret The Bleeding Obvious [Fri 4 Mar], with original songs and tales which are sometimes funny, occasionally poignant, frequently emotional, usually queer - and it’s probably the only show with the lyrics ‘demisexual panromantic polyamorous androgyne!’ Over at Spirit of Sheffield, the Rainbow Blades return for their prematch socials for the Nottingham Forest (Fri 4 Mar), Middlesbrough (Tue 8 Mar) and Barnsley (Sat 19 Mar) games. We also see the launch of two new nights this month with Rockies (Sat 5 Mar) hosted by LGBT+ Sheffield with a night of old school Hi-NRG classics and the launch of their new monthly Spirit Karaoke night (Thu 17 Mar). If karaoke is your thing then there is also a new night, hosted by drag queen Emma Maezin at Hemingways on Thursday 3 and 10 March. If you missed the memo, then it would appear that this month is Drag Bingo month, with three different events to choose from (or why pick? go to all three!). Kicking things off is the launch of a new monthly Draq Queen Bingo on Wed 16 March at Hagglers Corner hosted by the amazing Trixie Lee and cash prizes for the best dressed. Over at Forum we have the rescheduled Rupaul’s Drag Race Bingo (Fri 18 Mar) following their power cut in February, hosted by Ivy Alexxander and Ladonna for a night of bingo games, live performances and plenty of fun prizes. And last but by no means least, to complete the set, the KlubKids are in town for Boots Down Bingo (Sat 19 Mar) at Mecca Bingo with catwalks, dance-offs and performances from RuPaul’s Drag Race icons, hosted by Ophelia Balls and Coco Vadose Performances from Baga Chipz, Janey Jacke, Baily J Mills & more. We have more drag with Connie’s Angel Drag Show (Wed 23 Mar) taking to the stage at Crooke’s Social Club supporting LGBTQ+ charity Born This Way Foundation. The Electric Blue Show (Sat 26 Mar) returns to Malin Bridge Inn with an evening of cabaret, 80 | WWW.EXPOSEDMAGAZINE.CO.UK

comedy and games. And for something a little different, drag-horror legends The Boulet Brothers (Tue 29 Mar) will be appearing at Leadmill fresh from season four of their hit show, Dragula. If you’re after something to watch on the big screen, then Sheffield Adventure Film Festival have a screening of Patagonia’s feature length film They/Them (Sun 20 Mar) following Lor, a trans climber, into the sandstone canyons of northern Arizona. The Greystones welcome back Belinda O’Hooley on Sat 26 Mar (half of the four-time BBC Radio 2 Folk Award Best Duo nominees O’Hooley & Tidow)

showcasing her abilities as a composer and pianist for her show Inversions. And finishing up with a bang we have Piña is Burning (Fri 4 Mar) at Piña, celebrating all things queer with a line-up including Bruce La Danse & Nonna Fab, Babyschön and Love & Lust with all ticket proceeds going to Sheffield LGBTQ+ youth charity, SAYiT. That’s your lot for this month! As always, keep an eye on the Sheffield LGBT+ events page on sheffieldlgbtevents for updates and announcements on the latest events and news.

Until next time, love and rainbows...
