Get ready to do the hustle as disco fever takes over the Pollys Club’s latest event
Grab your boogie shoes and get ready to shimmy-shake as the Pollys take over Marrickville Town Hall for a spectacular 70’s inspired disco extravaganza where everyone is welcome.
The event will be one of the Polly’s main fundraising activities for the year with monies raised going towards the Pollys’ grants fund for LGBTIQ charities.
The show will be produced by Pollys Club member Matthew Cross who says it will feature all the fun disco hits that patrons “know and love”.
“So come along for a boogie and enjoy the vibrancy that the Polly’s Club has offered Sydney’s LGBT community for the past 53 years,” Cross said.
Cross hasn’t produced a show for the Pollys Club in over 10 years, and said he is excited to get back into the game.
“I can’t wait to show our patrons what I have in store for them in May,” he told SX.
“It’ll definitely have some proper 70’s dance moves that our older patrons will remember.”
Pollys Club member Garry Trotter, who recently took home an Honour Award for community service, says punters should expect a relaxing and friendly vibe – but still expect to party.
“You can expect people of all ages and sexuality. There are people from different parts of the gay world, from young twinks to drag queens, and leather queens, sporting guys, and lesbians.”
Trotter told SX the best thing about the event is the chance to get up and boogie to some retro tunes.
“Best of all you can be yourself in an environment where people don't judge you. The music is retro camp and a lot of fun.”
Pollys Club member Wayne Stanley, better known as drag queen Wanda A lot said no matter your age or predilections you’ll find plenty to enjoy at a Pollys’ gig.
“Pollys offers an amazing night of old school drag entertainment mixed with your favorite sing along disco hits to dance to in an all inclusive safe fun environment for all. Whether you are 18 or 88, gay, bi, straight, queer lesbian, trans or just want to dress up and be part of the theme, all are warmly embraced.”
