WES Summer Party 2023

Lights, camera, action! Our fabulous icon-themed party was a night filled with glitz, glamour, and an unforgettable celebration of timeless legends. From Marilyn Monroe’s captivating charm to Sean Connery’s suave sophistication, our guests embraced the essence of these iconic figures. With a lineup of DJs, mouthwatering pizzas, and dazzling performances by drag queens, this event was a true extravaganza that transported everyone back to the golden era of Hollywood.

As June was also Pride month, a time of celebration and recognition, to honour the diverse identities and experiences of people from all nationalities, genders, sexualities, and more. It serves as a crucial reminder that every individual’s story is valid and deserves to be acknowledged and respected.

In this way, we felt that the theme of ‘Fabulous Icons: The Afterparty’, was a subtle yet powerful way of also celebrating the contributions and impact of extraordinary individuals throughout history who have paved the way for LGBTQ+ rights and acceptance. By highlighting these “fabulous icons,” we aimed to pay homage to the resilience and triumphs of the LGBTQ+ community, fostering a sense of inclusivity, acceptance, and pride for all.

As the evening came to a start, our guests pulled out all the stops, channeling the spirit of their favourite legends. As the guests entered, they passed by red velvet ropes and stepped onto the red carpet, instantly transporting them into the environment of a celebrity after party! Golden accents added an extra touch of luxury, making everyone feel like true VIPs. The courtyards were alive with vibrant colours and dazzling displays which depicted iconic locations such as Abbey Road and the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The party became a runway of glamour, showcasing the creativity, individuality and fashion-forward choices of our attendees.

No party is complete without delicious food, and we knew exactly how to please our guests. A mouthwatering array of pizzas awaited everyone, with a variety of toppings and flavours to satisfy every palate. From classic margherita to gourmet creations, guests indulged in the delightful combination of cheese, dough, and tangy tomato sauce. The pizza station became a social hub, where conversations flowed as freely as the toppings.

The highlight of the night was the jaw-dropping performances by the talented drag queens. Dressed to the nines and exuding confidence, they captivated the audience with their show-stopping acts. Each performance paid tribute to the fabulous icons we celebrated, infusing their own unique style and flair into the mix. The back courtyard was alive with cheers, applause, and laughter as the drag queens delivered their performances with unmatched energy and charisma.

As the night progressed, the energy soared to new heights. Guests mingled, danced, and laughed, forming new friendships and celebrating old ones. From impromptu dance-offs to hilarious photo booth sessions, our fabulous icon-themed party was an evening that will forever be etched in our memories!
