Aberration Pride: A great night in for the LGBT+ community of Mid Wales and our friends! Music, comedy, drag, spoken word, speakers, contests, dancing + more…
This fab sold-out event is now over and is included here as part of our archive.
After running a series of low-key Aberration Adre (Aberration at Home) events, we are delighted to announce the first-ever Aberration Pride! Cyffrous!
Author Mike Parker will open the event followed by amazing acts including gender-bending lip-sync from Rhys’s Pieces, queer comedy from Shelf, spoken word from Dean Atta, music from Zoey Allen, Toby Carvery’s Good Dog Show, and the return of the cult quiz ‘Who Wants to Win Three Quid When This Is All Over?’ with Ruth Fowler (who co-hosts the evening with Helen Sandler and Jane Hoy).
We will hear inspiring words about Pride and LGBT+ rights from activists including Laolu Alatise, Aled Gustafson and Kate Rose. We also hope to hear from friends in Poland.
Pride from your sofa
Take part or take a back seat, but take pride! There’ll be a Virtual Pride March and lots of chances for you to have a bop.
We’re showcasing artists and speakers from near and far. And if you’ve never managed to travel to Aberystwyth for Aberration, now’s your chance to ‘be part of the queer arts scene that’s taking Mid Wales by storm’. (DIVA)

Please join us at Aberration Pride! Tickets are free on Eventbrite but we’ll be suggesting good causes for you to make donations if you can afford it. You’ll see instructions for how to get the Zoom link after you register. See you soon! Edrych ymlaen!

You are welcome whether you are lesbian, gay or bi, trans, genderqueer or non-binary, queer or questioning, intersex, asexual… or an open-minded ally!
