Coming Thursday the 12th of April, Liverpool’s iconic gay nightclub Heaven will be opening its doors for Wilde Club Night, promising an LGBTQ+ extravaganza!
All profits from ticket sales will be donated to The Rainbow International Fund, a charity which aims to empower LGBT activists and support those who are disadvantaged and face persecution, as well as raising awareness of LGBT human rights violations across the world.
The night will feature a lip-sync battle with a prize (soon to be announced) and will be DJ’d by Liverpool based Humble Abode. Heaven Nightclub is a gay town favourite, with cheap drinks and plenty of space to party. With gay anthems, glitter and booze it will be a guaranteed roof raiser.
One of the organisers, Joe Ferguson has commented, “This is the latest in a series of activism centred events by LGBT+ student activists in Merseyside. We figured it was time that Liverpool’s students had a club night which represented the rich history of LGBT+ nightclubbing. Often, these nightclubs were our safe spaces, our community halls. Now, by using Heaven as a space for a charity event of this nature, we celebrate this past. We’re raising money for the Rainbow International Fund, a charity which supports LGBT+ activists abroad. It’s a real pleasure to be able to raise money for such an amazing cause while having a boogie with some friends and whether you’ve been to gay town a thousand times or are a Victoria Street Virgin: come out and have a dance for a good cause!”
