Night of the Queer 2018

Get ready to lose yourself in the dark and exotic world of cabaret, music, burlesque, circus and dance that is Night of the Queer.  Returning to TAPAC by popular demand, this is an entirely new blend of sexy, genre-bending acts ready to embrace the excitement of Auckland Pride.

Curated by artistic director James Luck (Pleasuredome The Musical, Dancing With the Stars, Snuff Cabaret) and featuring bold, fearless performers from all sectors of the LGBTIQ+ community including aerial artists, soul singers, pole performers, drag divas and burlesque royalty Leda Petit in her swan song performance.

Where once stood the TAPAC theatre, now find a space transformed into a lavish bar so intimate, so charming and twisted that you’ll all at once be screaming ‘where am I!?’ AND begging to stay. Along with the lost, the peculiar and other lovers of the darkest hours, let yourself be beckoned into this otherworldly club to experience Night of the Queer. Our host (he’s an elegant yet odd and ungracious fellow) will show you to your seat. Now get yourself a drink, sit back and let yourself be entertained for entertainment’s sake. Resistance is futile.
