Paul J. Burgess is the founder, Writer and Actor at Pink Triangle LGB&T Theatre Group. He’s also a Teacher, a Youth Worker and more importantly a Human being. This month Paul has kindly agreed to be GW’s guest writer. So without further delay here is Paul’s GW guest editorial.  Incredibly honest power in such few words. “It takes a village to raise a child” is often attributed as an African   Read More ...

York Pride Chairman discusses why the LGB&T community shouldn’t forget our history and the struggles We have had to go through to get the level of equality and freedom that We enjoy today. It’s a fantastic and meaningful read and thank you to Dan Sidley for writing it for us. xRoss (Co-Creator GW) History, Freedom and equality! Very recently, my partner and I paid respects to a victim of one   Read More ...

Whilst working within and for the gay community We (Myself and Tom) have come across many a personality with ego’s bigger than a successful drag queens waistline. We’ve come up against more walls than a post war Berliner and yet managed to navigate the politics of the gay scene queens to promote the LGB&T venues, events, charities and I must say We’ve had a generally fab time. With so much   Read More ...

Well it’s been a while since GW had a editorial, our monthly editorial turned into a bi monthly one and then via the medium of laziness it then turned into a tri monthly one (We’ll tri anything once!). 2013 is now upon us and a fresh start for editorials and such.

August was a busy month in Gay Wakefield with Wakefield Pride being held as always on the second Sunday of that month. The New Union Bar & Eatery on Southgate was packed to the rafters as the main pride stage this year   Read More ...

Well what a busy month or so I’ve had and for once it’s not all been about GW. His Royal Highness Thomas Wales and I joined Chester’s Betty Sparkle and Jordan for a trip to das capital! Yes the murky lights of London beckoned as we excitedly and eagerly ventured down south to witness the 80’s back catalogue of Pete Waterman and Co being wheeled out especially for us (and   Read More ...

Well this is a double whammy editorial because in May I didn’t write one, so you lucky guys and gals now get the privilege of a combined May/June splurge from the workings of my mind. May came and summer was nowhere to be seen, it did however see Wakefield’s original LGB&T night ‘Glitterballs’ successfully go on tour to The Liquorice Bush in Ponte-Carlo, We sometimes forget that Wakefield is not   Read More ...

OMG is it April already? The weather in Gay Wakefield doesn’t quite know what to do with itself at the moment but unlike the weather GW itself really does know what it’s doing this month. April brings change to Gay Wakefield as Nigel Palfrey leaves the helm of Club Odyssey after many successful years running the legendary club and it’s now defunct sister pub Bar Zeus, GW would like to   Read More ...

Well as the cold winter months slowly turn into spring its GW that’s showing the green roots of new growth. Our newly re vamped website has gained good feedback from our community and beyond. Our 1st Birthgay event at Club Odyssey went down a treat with Madame Connie Lingus and her devilishly divine daughter Madame Nikoal being joined by Chester’s very own Lady Wanda Why for a crazy party the   Read More ...

Well it’s been a while folks, GW has been away whilst tech geek (Tom) changes servers, re-designs our site and whilst we re-access our purpose in this constantly changing environment. GW has been around for a year (Feb 2012) and what a year it has been, We successfully launched our site gaywakefield.com with three events at Velvet Cocktail Lounge, The New Union Bar & Eatery and also at the legendary   Read More ...
