You Think, I Thought, Who Confirm?: Pref or Prejudice


"Chn only", "No ind", "Pref mly", "into whites only" 

Seen these on people's profiles on Jack'd or Grindr? Join us at the first session of Pref or Prejudice as we explore the racial dynamics in the gay community and find answers to questions like: 

- Is it racial preference or prejudice when someone wants to date only people of a certain ethnicity? 
- How exactly is it like for members of minority racial groups in the gay community, being a minority within a minority? 
- What can we do to counter racial prejudice and discrimination in the gay community?  

Hear from our panelists who will share their experiences and thoughts and engage in a moderated discussion on how we can create a more inclusive community for everyone in the gay community. 

Pref or Prejudice is a new theme in our You Think, I Thought, Who Confirm series, and aims to explore the intersections of different aspects of a gay man's identity. Future sessions will discuss topics such as masculinity ("masc and str-acting only", "no sissy"), body image issues ("fit for fit only", "no chubs") and biphobia in the gay community.

Pref or Prejudice is organised in conjunction with International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

[Community] Ragnarok by Andrew Sutherland



Ragnarok is a challenging new work that aims to confront the darker aspects of human behaviour within the context of the gay community. Using Norse mythology and the apocalyptic myth of Ragnarok as an allegorical device, the play revolves around a group of characters who frequent an archetypal gay & lesbian nightclub – Asgard, in which verbal and sexual violence are used as the weapons of romantic obsession.

Dan is an idealist, who dreams of romance with beautiful party boy Alan. When Lachlan, a troubled figure from Dan’s past, returns into his life, Dan’s dream of happiness spirals irreversibly into a nightmare. Assisted by the Icicles, two vicious club kids who delight in cruelty, Lachlan’s mounting obsession with Dan quickly becomes fatal.

Punctuated by the original compositions of Esther Low, Ragnarok serves to confront its audience with difficult questions about issues of identity, power and illness that have evolved within the global gay community.

We hope that the play contributes to the breadth of theatre in Singapore that deals with LGBT issues, unsentimentally exploring a difficult narrative within the contemporary LGBT experience that deserves cross-examination.

Dates and Time: April 15th – 18th at 8pm.
Venue: The Substation Theatre, 45 Armenian Street.
Duration of show: 90 minutes
Ticket pricing: SGD$35 (plus booking fee)
Tickets Available: From www.skinnedkneeproductions.com 
Advisory: R18 – strong sexual content, homosexual themes, strong language and implied drug use

TRICK: Attica Thursdays launches on 18 December 2014



The Phoenix Parties in partnership with Attica Singapore is excited to announce that TRICK, a brand new weekly party, will launch on Thursday 18th December 2014. TRICK Attica Thursdays is a party for the hip, fashionable and irreverent. It is saucy, naughty, playful and surreal.

TRICK is a Thursday nightspot more exciting and entertaining than anything the weekend has to offer. We're creative, daring and 'in your face' with our party and theme concepts, and we intend to up the ante on our clubbers' experience. TRICK also aims to advocate a thing or two. Like embracing a world of diversity. We aspire to create a safe space to explore bohemian wackiness, within an environment that is a hybrid of a show club, a festival, a dance club - and a bit of a circus.

All said, TRICK is a group of fun people who come together weekly for the love of a good party. See you on the dance floor.
