Thirty years ago a club night called Shameless Hussies completely changed my life. It brought me love, community and a thing called house music. Less Jack more Jo, Shameless Hussies marked the moment I moved my vinyl addiction from the bedroom to the dancefloor and together with Tiz, Melissa, Queenie, Meech, the Venus Rising queens and the campaigning wonders Lesbian Strength, help create a moment of dancefloor equality in Brighton, complete with darkroom, DIY decor and banging bongos. Oh, those bongos!
So it with proud goosebumps Queenie and I are thrilled to announce we will be doing our Shameless thing at Brighton’s Queer History Club (Bing!) Vol #2 on January 30th. 50% History Talk – 50% Night Club – 100% Queer Heritage Fun! Join us as we share how that promise of banging bongos was the beginning of a 29-year disco partnership both on and off the dance floor. Proud, fruity, majestic and always Brighton’s Housewife’s Choice, come hear us spin a tale of late nights, sticky creations, divine cowbells and the many, many nightclub wonders we’ve met along the way. Proud Powerpoint presentation a distinct possibility, DJ set comprising of Shameless Hussies and Housewife’s Choice anthems a definite.
