Glitter Hole, a queer feminist variety show in Dublin, hosts a platform for LGBTQ and female performers.

Offering drag performances, stand-up comedy, ‘beauty pageants’, musical acts and more, Glitter Hole aims to be an inclusive, non-discriminatory space that embraces all identities and gives performers and guests an opportunity to express themselves.

A relatively young event, Glitter Hole made its debut in November 2016 and is expecting its fifth show on Pride weekend this June.

Located in Jigsaw, a DIY venue on the north side of Dublin, entry is inexpensive (though competitive as attendance has been exceeding capacity), and drinks are BYOB.

Learn more about the inspiration behind Glitter Hole, its aims and how it fits in to the current LGBTQ scene in Dublin in the below interview with Glitter Hole founder, Beth Hayden.
