The “Forgotten” Sex Education 

Interactive Drag Quiz


Hosted by self-proclaimed ‘Brighton-based bimbo’, Lydia L’Scabies!


Supported by Terrence Higgins Trust


We’re on a mission to make safe sex sexy.  For many of us LGBTQ+ folks, the relevant sex education was (ahem) “forgotten”, and we deserve answers.


Join us to fill in the gaps with an interactive quiz (with prizes, of course!) and ask any (hopefully not) burning questions you might have.

  • Every last Thursday of the month

  • Doors open: 8 pm

  • Entry is free
