Clexacon is a fairly new lesbian film and media convention that launched in Vegas in 2016, and has decided to host an event in London. The inaugural Clexacon London took place over 3 and 4 November 2018 in London.
What a cracking night!
I went with my exhausted self (I’d been moving house all day) to check out the debut of Read my Lips at the Old Market Assembly, wondering how I’d stay awake long enough to take it all in.
A Stonewall Season fundraiser for lesbians of all descriptions that can't be arsed to put a going out outfit on and go into Soho. Come to a super gay friendly pub, bring your dog/kids/wife, eat lunch and be entertained by a lesbian performer, a quiz and a raffle with some fab prizes.
Thoroughly enjoyed this event.
It was in an idyllic venue in London where many gathered sipping summer cocktails on the rooftop of the Century Club on a Sunny evening.

Hate the end of the weekend and wish it was longer?
Looking for a distraction from the washing and chores that Sunday normally brings? Guess what, new event Love Shelter is just what you want!
I tried the jerk chicken drumstick; the curried mutton; the macaroni cheese; the fried chicken wings; the coleslaw and the salt fish fritters. Ok, so I tried it all! It was amazing and reminded me of the food my ex-girlfriend’s mother used to make on a Sunday. A very typical Caribbean feast and well worth every penny.
Pout’s new location took place at the funky 3 storey bar in Balham, known as the Exhibit. Great transport links, from buses, trains and tubes to access venue.
Hot on the heels of its North London success, the monthly DownGirls event has found a new home in bar far a more Central locations and continues right where it left off... bringing a huge dose of its trademark #mingetwinge to Bar Titania on the last Friday of the month.
