She’s already slaying in RuPaul's Drag Race, now the All Star 4 finalist will perform at this year’s National Student Pride.
Fresh from celebrating getting to the final – however, it pans out – Trinity the Tuck will hit the stage to celebrate LGBT History Month in the UK at National Student Pride’s after party at iconic London gay venue Heaven.
Trinity the Tuck has been slaying and winning our hearts all season long on RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 4. And not to mention her out-of-this-world, music video released a few weeks ago "The Face, The Body" – so queers everywhere should be very excited about her performance on Saturday 23rd February 2019.
Elsewhere at the daytime event at the University of Westminster, Ian McKellen will be interviewed by BBC Broadcaster Evan Davis in a live recording of the #QueerAF podcast.
McKellen will also be on the panel celebrating and commemorating 50 years since the Stonewall riots. McKellen will be joined by Paris Lees, Paula Akpan and Peter Tatchell.
The main focus of the event is challenging racism on the scene, and the Pride Not Prejudice discussion with Attitude Magazine will see Munroe Bergdorf, BBC LGBT correspondent Ben Hunte, Brexit whistleblower Shamir Sanni and UK Black Pride representative Moud Gouba.
The day will end with a Strictly Come Vouging competition, where students from all over the UK will vouge for a chance to win – and will remind popular TV show formats, that same-sex partners can dance together with professional voguers performing too. Enter here.
The daytime event is free for all to attend, and features the biggest LGBT+ careers fair in the UK – Pride.Careers. Weekend wristbands with afterparty entry are £5 and available now.
National Student Pride is being platinum-sponsored in 2019 by EY for the ninth consecutive year. Maggie Stilwell, Managing Partner for Talent at EY, UK & Ireland, comments: “EY are proud to be the Platinum sponsor for National Student Pride 2019, a partnership we have built and maintained for the last seven years. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is unerring and the event allows us to connect with young LGBT talent in an environment of respect and opportunity. It’s important for us to show the next generation that they will be able to be themselves in the workplace. Last year thousands of the students from across the UK attended the event and we are excited to meet even more in February at the Careers Fair. We look forward to the whole weekend festival of events, including the ever popular series of discussions.”
Law firm Clifford Chance, ASOS and Just Eat are gold sponsors. Enterprise Rent A Car, Lloyds Banking Group and Santander are silver sponsors.
The event began at Oxford Brookes University in 2005 as a response to the Christian Union’s ‘Homosexuality and the Bible’ talk. Student Pride continues this mantra in its 12th year choosing to hold its 2017 event at on campus because the fight Students face remains just as prevalent, if not more complex, than when we first began.
Tickets are available now, please do support the event by including a link in any coverage.
