itoldyouiwouldeatyou have teamed up with Signature Brew to host a special The Queer Escape Party! The event, which is set to take place on April 18 at Brighton Electric, is charged at suggested donation to children’s gender diversity charity Mermaids UK.
Performing at the event alongside itoldyouiwouldeatyou include some of the UK queer scenes top talents; The Spook School, Nervus, Flirting and Alison Rumfitt with more names to be announced.
ITYIWEY guitarist Joey Ashworth says; “We play lots of gigs and meet lots of lovely people in bands. One thing we’ve noticed is that, whilst we have a lot of queer friends in bands in many cities, we often have to specify we want to play with diverse line ups to make it happen. We shouldn’t have to specify, it should be standard.
“We thought we’d put on a bunch of sweet queer bands in Brighton where we can all hang out and hopefully raise a bit of money for Mermaids, a charity which helps gender diverse children and teenagers and their families. It’s donations on the door, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Signature Brew are also very kindly sorting the beers – sweet.”
