Hardware stores, domestic fetish, drag queens and superheros were just some of the places that our writers drew inspiration from. This LABB event gave goosebumps to everyone that attended. It also featured two fantastic burlesque performances by Mimi Amoreand Lola Rogue.

A tale of revelation, transformation and determination. When the headline drag act Lady Cha Cha is upstaged by new-kid-on-the-block, Kyla Kandi, she threatens to have her kicked out of the show for good. However, an unlikely friendship blossoms and the two develop a bond that can only be shared between two queens. Behind the wigs and the makeup sit two vulnerable men sharing talk of their past, present and future. Throw in some size eight heels, some witty dialogue and a bottle of gin and here we have Queen Dream.
