I highly recommend this virtual experience! Aisha did an awesome job of showing us what London queer life looked like! Performances by Beau Jangles and Asia Thorne were so fun and creative! I would definitely book them again!

Such a great experience! I really enjoyed the presentation and performances. It felt like a personable and engaging time for my group, who showed a lot of engagement throughout! I don’t want to spoil the content, but the history I learned was so interesting and I was captivated by the show. If your a team, affinity group, a group of friends, etc. this is for you! If you wanna learn more about london, more about lgbt history, or have an entertaining time, this is for you!

This was an amazing experience. Aisha is always so caring about her guests and the space felt very comfortable and inclusive. Besides meeting new people and learning about them, I was able to learn about queer history and what is like to be LGBTQ+ in London as well as the gay nightlife. This insight was informative as I am currently visiting London. We also got to see two great drag queen and king performances! I would highly recommend this and any other experiences with Aisha.
