//BANDS-DJs-ZINES-HAIRCUTS-FUN TIMES!//

It’s January! The best time of the year. Christmas comedowns are a thing of the past. Onwards to the future! Just for you we have an evening of live music followed by incredible DJs, plus a mini intersectional zine fair, and of course, haircuts!

We have been offered a permanent home in Hackney, and we are fundraising to cover the legal costs, and the renovations to make it fully accessible (including an accessible bathroom) and ready to welcome all the lovely queers from London and beyond. Our new space will be much bigger, offering more haircuts, and more free and queer friendly hangout space.
