A REYT QUEER EXTRAVAGANZA: OUR BIGGEST PARTY EVER!

Five people stand together smiling under a golden sign that days 'reyt queer'. They are all dressed to impress.

We showed Leadmill how to really throw a party this July with our biggest event ever – A Reyt Queer Extravaganza!

An evening packed with lewks, lipsyncing and crazy choreography, our artists and fantastic audience made it a night to remember.

Legendary MC Rikki Beadle-Blair kicked off proceedings in full bridal couture, and served powerful looks and even more powerful laughs throughout the night.

Sheffield’s very own House of Forgeous made their debut bringing style, vogue, attitude and queer joy to the catwalk.

Jaws were seen dropping as South Yorkshire legends Bi Polar, King Confuza, Ivy Alexander, Ditzy O Darlin, Northern powerhouses Val Qaeda, Kaan Ghetto, incredible singer/rapper Meduulla and the unstoppable House of Noir and House of Blaque – stunned with impressive looks, walks and tracks in categories from Turn a Lewk to Queer Kink to Lipsync.

Yvn Noir kept it cool

Overseeing the evening was our judges – Stuart, Claud Cunningham and Heather Paterson who gave 10s across the board to our performers.

Tasty vegan cake, merch and a slightly more chilled vibe was found in room 2. There, our audience could take a breather, have a chinwag, meet our fantastic volunteers and try to stop themselves buying all of our badges!

And the whole crowd looked incredible of course – were we ever in any doubt?

We’re so grateful to all of you who came down and made A Reyt Queer Extravaganza our biggest party ever. Getting together in a huge party, seeing the support for the artists and being in a room full of love and joy made the night truly magical!
