Clare’s Pride festival was cancelled last year but is back with a bang and will be the Banner County’s first Pride festival. Tickets are €8, but with a limited number of free tickets also available. There is also an option of a €13 ‘Solidarity Ticket’ – this includes a donation of €5 which helps us to make the free tickets available for those who might otherwise not be able to afford it.
This is going to be a fantastic weekend for Clare’s LGBTQ+ community and for people who we hope will travel from around Ireland to be with us this weekend. We want our community to be visible and connected to the wider community in Clare. The party is for over-18s only. It’s one of several events that will make up the Quare Clare Pride 2022. More details to follow.
Quare Clare is a group that formed in 2020 and holds online meetings and in-person social events. Anyone from the LGBTQ+ community in Clare who would like to get involved in Quare Clare can email lgbtq.clare@gmail.com to find out more.
THE PERFORMERS:
Bonnie Boux:
Booty Poppin Irish Jig Hoppin Bonnie Boux snatches hearts with her intoxicating mix of the Classic Burlesque style and Hip Hop vibes fused with her comedic timing that is second to none. Bonnie Boux is no stranger to the stage. Miss Burlesque Ireland 2022 and Top 30 European Queen of Burlesque 2019, Bonnie’s life is devoted to her passion, working towards spreading the daily mantra to “Dance Yourself Free”.
Elle Uminati:
Elle Uminati is known for being the sweetest party girl around! With the perfect combo of ‘Rhinestones and Feathers’ meets ‘PVC and Chains’, this West Coast Queen (she lives in Ennis) is an experienced Drag DJ, performer, host, and all-round babe! If you’re looking for a stunner who’s the talk of the room – Elle is the Queen for you!
Phil T. Gorgeous:
Drag King, gender illusionist, male impersonator, weirdo… call him what you want but there’s no doubt that whatever he is, Phil T. Gorgeous is ALL man…. Well…. Mostly. He first swaggered across the stage in early 2004 introducing unsuspecting audiences to his own brand of drag performance and whether entertaining in the intimate surroundings of a cozy café, or hosting to tens of thousands at Pride events, Phil has been happily raising eyebrows both nationally and internationally ever since. Phil T comes with a warning ladies, it reads “dangerously Gorgeous!”
