Lyons Den roars to life with new queer social night out

The launch of a new queer social night out hit Gosford with a bang last week with the Naughty Noodle Fun Haus’ ‘ThursGAY’ event on April 29.

The Ettalong-based entertainment organisation have partnered with the Lyons Den to help put on the monthly show which presents a free night of live DJs, music and drag performances.

And it was a busy one!

With guests spilling out onto the streets and tables full, the Lyons Den roared to life with a variety of performers hitting the stage, including DJ Delinquent Disposition, Jack Williams, Tom Bones, and MIDAS.

Creative Director of Naughty Noodle, Glitta Supernova, said she was surprised at the turnout

It’s safe to say Gosford came alive with live music, dancing and performance art … Lyons Den reported it as their busiest night on record since opening!” Supernova said.

“I don’t think our first night could have been better than this … we had more people arrive that we could accommodate.

“It was definitely one of those heart opening experiences – the community desperately needs a regular social space as these kinds of safe spaces provide a sense of belonging, a place to be yourself, and build community.

“It was a very special event, and it was evident by the joy bouncing off the walls and onto the impromptu dance floor, and the supportive cheers of support for our wonderful performers.”

Supernova said patrons raved about the night and were excited to come back this month when ThursGAY lights up the Den on May 27.
