Queer Zinefest isn’t setting up any pop-ups with boxes of zines for us anytime soon, but it is getting the community together via its Pajama Party. Pajama Party happens on weekday nights where local makers and creators share everything (we mean everything). From poetry to animation and discussions on pressing matters like racism and self-care. It is an awesome and safe space for people to mingle and reconnect with the LGBTQ+ community.
Catch them on @queerzinefestsg weekday nights.
Man about Town is sliding into out virtual space every Friday on Zoom. While we can’t experience its signature Truffle Thursday, The Den and BYOT pool parties, we can enjoy The Gaythering with club bangers spun live by local and international DJs. Mingle and dance along to familiar or new hits and just lose yourself to the music.
