Pride season is upon us. And it seems that Pride becomes increasingly for...
- Straights who like glitter and alcohol but don't give a shit about getting your pronouns right
- Massive corporations who slap a rainbow on one product, but don't actually hire any queers to work on it and then don't even donate any of the profits to LGBTIQ+ charities
- Cis white gay men who are content in thinking our fight is over because they can get married.

Therefore, The ShayShay Show is proud to present...
SPECTRUM PRIDE

For anyone feeling hollow from Pride season, let's feel fury, joy and the entire spectrum of emotions as we come together and conjure some queer power. ShayShay will lead us through performances and activities to awaken your queer thunder and open your queer third eye.

The ShayShay Show strives to present a diverse line-up to showcase the beautiful spectrum of our community. For anyone left feeling unseen by Pride season, WE SEE YOU & WE LOVE YOU!

Starring...
High Wasted (Mahatma Khandi, ShayShay & Sophie Brain)
Prinx Silver
Lauriem

Featuring... Fresh Queer Talent (Yes, you!)
+ Non-binary, Trans*, POC, intersex performers, please get in touch about performing in our 'New Talent Showcase'. If you have been wanting to gain stage experience or maybe even perform for the very first time, this is your chance! Those selected will work with ShayShay one-on-one prior to the Spectrum Pride.
