The GlamSlam comes to a spectacular end!

UniQ Victoria’s GlamSlam 2005 festival is about to come to a spectacular close.

The events during the inaugural week, including The Glammies award ceremony where Georgina Beyer took away the Lifetime Achievement Award, the GAP Glam debate, the Queer BBQ at Eastside and the Test The Queer Nation Quiz have been hugely successful.

On Friday night, the Ms Downunder pageant returns to Pound niteclub. UniQ Victoria President Paul Brown says, “It’s been absent for a couple of years now. The last one, held in 2003, stirred a great deal of controversy with many people complaining the winner was “too femme”, so I imagine the stakes will be extremely high this year.”

Then to close the week is the dance party to end all dance parties. GlamSlamm 2005 “Sinner or Saint” is shaping up to be a great alternative to watching the election coverage.

“We’ve got Hanes Go-Go Boys and D.Vice Go-Go Girls who’ll be parading around in next to nothing ensuring everyone’s having a great time!” says Paul

“The theme is sinner or saint—a simple theme—but one which we can all play on, so we hope to see everyone there for a wicked night with revered DJ Karl Moser (HERO, Mardi Gras, Synergy).”

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>

Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
