HoS Presents: The Love Temple Edition

— The Loco Klub
The House of Savalaon are Bristol's local anti-septic Drag Cabaret & Party production company #FeelTheBurnAndLetYourselfBeHealed
price: Headfirst Tickets

Information:

Having died and entered the afterlife, the Queers of Planet Earth have discovered what they knew all along, they are the Gods of their own Creation. Having spent their lives in a vacuous world of heteronormativity, they no longer seek permission or validation, no longer do they seek to "fit in." Calling all Kings, Queens, Gods, Goddesses, Deities and Dakinis! Be reborn in your own image! God is a gender bending, leopard print wearing, finger snapping, fan flapping, multi-sexual entity and they look like YOU #GetUsedToIt. The Love Temple decrees that you are an ICON, dress accordingly. Will you take inspiration from Eros of the Ancient Greeks, Jupiter of the battle-hardy Romans, or Ishtar the Babalonian Goddess of fertility, love and war, luxuriating upon her balcony of brilliance? Perhaps you are a Virgin Madonna, a sultry satanist, or an Instagram Influenza turned Pop Star sensation? We EatPrayLove at the altar of Prince, dance to the beat of Cher's drum and whip each other lovingly in underground dungeons, what the Love Temple considers to be a sacred altar.

The House of Savalon Presents: The Love Temple Edition. Join us for this belated Valentine's Day special where we Queers will be re-born as Gods and Goddesses. It's time to become the ICON you were always born to be.....

With dress up comes a small and polite nod to everybodies most favest of woke terms...

CULTURAL APPROPRIATION 

The House of Savalon encourages full dress up though we also have an anti-cultural appropriation policy in accordance with our commitment against racism. 

The House of Savalon understands that racism exists in many forms, and it is upheld within societal structures and practices, notably cultural appropriation, wherein people co-opt cultural garments or practices from a culture they do not personally identify with, usually in the form of costume.

As a House that often encourages themed dressing-up or immersion within the world of our shows, this policy is especially important.  Even if donning a particular item of clothing or accessory might seem harmless, it is important to think about what it might mean to other people – for some, it’s so much more than just an accessory. These items hold cultural and/or religious significance. When people wear certain items as a costume, they disregard the struggles those who wear these garments as part of their culture go through.  

Key questions that people should ask themselves to avoid the pitfalls of cultural appropriation: 
Was this design created by people who have been historically marginalised? 
Do I belong to that marginalised community, or has anyone from it invited me to wear that design? 
Is my wearing it benefiting the community in any way?  

Please feel free to fire any questions our way about this. We borrowed most of the cultural appropriation text above from The VAULTS in London with only a few minor tweaks.
