Halloween Fun and Games

So, Halloween is an excellent opportunity (excuse?) to dress up and get out and about. If you are recognised, well you are just having some innocent Halloween gender bending fun. If your presentation is a little ‘off’, well you are in dress up mode, so what?

With this in mind I am pleased to tell you about not one but two Halloween parties that are happening this Halloween.

On 31 October (Halloween itself), Amuse will be hosting a midweek Halloween party. Entrance is free and there will be a free bottle of whisky for the best dressed person at the party.

On Saturday 27 October, there will be a party at Trouble (aka Big Boss Diner). Like Amuse, entrance is free and there will be prizes for the best dressed. Hilton has also promised drinks specials throughout the night!

I honestly cannot guarantee that Irene and/or I will be at either of these events, we will do our very bets, but life has been hectic lately and I am not sure it will get any better in the short term, but we would encourage you all to get out if you can.

The last Halloween party I attended was a long time ago in 2015. I went to an event hosted by Lola Montez (when she was still doing events) and then I went to Trouble. Both were a lot of fun and it really helped me gain confidence in getting out on my own… I thought I would share a few pictures that may inspire you.

This is a fantastic opportunity to safely get out and about and also support those LGBT friendly institutions that give us a safe place to socialise. On that note it is always nice to meet like minded people, share some experiences and of course have a little bit of a party too!

Hope to see you all out in your amazing fabulousness.

Slutwalk Johannesburg 2018

Some feedback on the Slutwalk outing and post walk lunch at Lucio’s… I sure had a fulfilling day out. I hope all the others who joined did as well. Hope to see more of you at our next event (watch out we are working on something Halloweeny) and also at next year’s Slutwalk!

I would also like to thank Lucio’s for their fantastic hospitality AND thank and acknowledge the bravery of all of you who came out in support of the day. I know it can be nerve wracking moving around amongst ‘normal’ people in a ‘vanilla’ setting when you are fully or partially en femme. You were all amazingly brave and I salute your courage and thank you for participating. For privacy reasons I won’t mention you all by name but feel free to comment and claim your kudos.

Hope to see you all again soon!

Daniella's Ramblings

We once again attended Slutwalk this year. This was my third walk and they do not get any easier. I find them emotionally charged events and I am often brought to tears as we walk through the streets of Johannesburg’s suburbs. And yet I do find the walk enjoyable. It is so good to feel part of a collective effort trying to do something about the scourge that is rape culture. I am in awe of then people who come forward and share their stories publicly. I am empowered in my daily life when I think of those who have so bravely reported their rapists and fought for justice to be done.

We got up relatively early for a Saturday morning and after a quick breakfast we started getting ready. Preparations were complicated by a series of interruptions including having to make and deliver a last minute breakfast order to…
