Queer Bash 2017

Out in UL’s largest showcase event, Queerbash, will take place on Friday, April 7th in Dolans Warehouse. Queerbash, now in its fourteenth year, is Limerick’s longest running LGBTQ+ night out, and also one of the longest running events in the University of Limerick’s history.
Every year, Queerbash takes on a new theme, with people encouraged to dress up and all the décor of the night based around that theme. This year, the theme of Queerbash 14 is ‘Fairytales and Fiction: Let your Imagination Run Wild’. People will come emulating their favourite fictional characters and creatures on the night.
Queerbash was set up by the late Paddy McHugh as a way of bringing the LGBTQ+ community and wider community together, to reclaim the term “Queerbash” in a positive way, and also as a response to the violence against the queer community in Limerick at the time. The event is carried on with these aims in mind, and also to give local talent and University talent a chance to showcase what they can do.
The show will be hosted by a former Alternative Miss UL performer, Notorious K.I.D, and will also feature performances by UL Drama Soc, BA in Voice and Dance students, and Ruth Walsh and Billy Verlinden. This year, local band A Weekend Away, winners of University Battle of the Bands 2017, will be featured in the show. There will also be a live DJ, Eoghan Clark. With a wide variety of acts, from both communities, it is sure to be a great night with something for everyone.
Doors open for the event from 9.00pm, April 7th in Dolans Warehouse. Tickets price is €10 and can be bought at the door.
