Join Years & Years, Sink the Pink and more at HISKIND Presents: Dean

Last Sunday, HISKIND lost a founder and friend, Dean Eastmond, who sadly lost his battle with cancer.

On 20th September, we will celebrate Dean, his achievements and his work in an event that pulls together London’s LGBT+ community and some of Dean’s favourite performers. Buy your £15 ticket here.

LGBT+ journalist, HISKIND co-founder and cancer activist Dean Eastmond was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma in 2015 and was given a 50% chance of survival. He was soon sent to Florida for specialist Proton Beam therapy treatment and following a gruelling 12-month fight with chemotherapy, was advised that the cancer had spread. Dean recently received the heart-wrenching news that his cancer was terminal and that instead of the years he was hoping to fight for, he was fighting for just weeks.

Dean sadly passed away on Sunday morning surrounded by his family and boyfriend Adam. We were hoping Dean might make it to September 20 to see and feel all the love that has been so profound and forthcoming during these extremely difficult past few months.

HISKIND Presents: Dean will capture everything Dean stood for and was passionate about from live bands, vogue dancers, spoken word, drag, live artists and live catwalk and models.

Some of Dean’s favourite performers will be playing on the night including Years & Years, Sink The Pink and a DJ set from Will Joseph Cook.

All of the money raised from ticket sales will be donated to Dean’s family and the charities that supported him throughout his treatment. You can donate here

The evening will predominately be open to Dean’s family, friends and supporters. However, we would love for you to join us on the night and support HISKIND in celebrating Dean and his achievements and have limited tickets available for public purchase.

Tickets will be priced at £30 each, plus a £3 service charge per ticket and you must be over the age of 18 to attend the event.

Please email for tickets.
