“I don’t know why y’all gagging so? She brings it to you every ball.”
A toy ball by any other name would not have been so sweet. From the filthy to the glamorous, the boys, toys and boytoys flooded London’s Troxy in mass this weekend (18/03) in a divine celebration of sequins, glitter and major lewks.
Dripping in 90s camp vibes, furby freaks met subbuteo hotties and troll dolls in their toy themed club night extravaganza. The cause and motives of Sink the Pink are plain and simple, to throw one hell of a party, oozing in guilty pleasures, with drag to die for and moments you probably wouldn’t tell your grandma about. Birthed in the shadows of Bethnal Green’s Working Men’s Club, the collective have captured the queer audience, celebrated their identity and discourse and beamed it out for all to enjoy.
The sky is anything but the limit for this queer super-troupe, appearing at a handful of festivals this year and hosting Years & Years’ comeback at this year’s Mighty Hoopla festival in Victoria Park (4th June).
We took to the night armed only with a camera, our dancing shoes and lots of drinks from our friends at Absolut.
