It was on a cold Wednesday night in Shakey Wakey that the glamorous and the beautiful mixed with the important and the wannabe important. Yes gaywakefield.com had it’s VIP preview evening on Wednesday 2nd Feb 2011 at the relatively new ‘Velvet Cocktail Bar’ situated appropriately on Queen Street Wakefield.

No Velvet is in no way a Gay Bar but it is a very trendy and friendly bar with a great atmosphere. Just the place gaywakefield.com required to help break down barriers between straight and gay sectors in Wakefield as well as avoiding the tangled mess and mine field that has been the politics of the gay venues of Wakefield in previous years.

The Night begun at 7pm with a champagne greet and meet with representatives from across the local and national gay community. Members of all political parties and gay organisations mingled pleasantly with the bar/cafe owners, drag artists, DJ’s and managers. A voice message created especially for GW by X-Factor’s voice man Peter Dickson went down a treat as did the deliciously classy canapés provided by Wakefield Theatre Royal’s very own bistro cafe ‘The Green Room’.

The Evening was more of a celebration of what gaywakefield.com has achieved by just coming into existence and it was a great opportunity for Wakefield’s communities, organisations, venue’s and other business’s to put old rifts aside and welcome in a new chapter of friendship and co-operation in Wakefield and the perfect night for the debut of gaywakefield.com and for all that we stand for.

One Wakefield, One Scene, One Community, together in one place and all under one banner!
