The inaugural Starkers Academy Ball brings the glamour and camp of Ball culture to life drawing audiences of all abilities for Pride in London, hosted by ultra-queen and feminist clown Kiki Mellék.

Immortalised by 1990 documentary Paris is Burning, Madonna’s iconic Vogue and the more recent televised phenomenon Pose, the drag Ball culture was all about the power to exert identity through transformation, performance and sheer guts. At the Starkers Academy Ball, the life models will be giving Nude Realness as they pose for a drawing public of all abilities, sexes, sexualities, genders and backgrounds.

Hosted in partnership with Gay Star News as part of Pride in London 2019.

All abilities welcome and encouraged. Materials provided, courtesy of GreatArt. Drinks sponsored by Blossom Hill.

Doors at 6:30pm. 18+
