Crossbreed to throw new weekly party at Colour Factory

Crossbreed will be hosting weekly Sunday events at Hackney Wick's Colour Factory from Sunday, February 13.

From 3:PM to Midnight every Sunday, the kink-positive party will be establishing an intentional space for London's LGBT community to interact, dance, and explore identity/sexuality in a safer, purpose-built atmosphere.

Every week Crossbreed founder DJ Kiwi or new resident Anthousai will be joined by a guest.

The label and promoters have said that they would work closely with the Colour Factory to overhaul the layout and design inside the venue - in hopes to create an inclusive atmosphere.

This involves a major renovation of the facility, the installation of a brand new four-point Danley Audio soundsystem.

New toilets, a freshly created and completely functional playground designed in partnership with designer Thomas Poole, a dedicated wellness sanctuary, new lighting, and a visual pornography installation by porn-production project Four Chambers will all be part of the transformation.

Every member of staff will go through extensive training, which will completely equip them for our community's particular welfare requirements.

In a press statement, the organisation said: " We want to create a space that centres the queer people most marginalised in society.

"A queer club that holds accountability, harm reduction, anti-racism and joy at the core of everything that we do".

Cormac, ItaloJohnson, Roman Flugel, Lakuti, Tama Sumo, Sno, Saoirse, Kasra V, Omer, Ata, Peach, and Shanti Celeste have all appeared at Crossbreed since its start a little over two years ago.

For their weekly event at Colour Factory they will be continuing their Feel Free scheme; a mutual aid fund that provides low and no-income members of the kink community (prioritising trans and people of colour) with free tickets.

"We believe all people are entitled to joy, hedonism and self-expression regardless of economic pressures. These tickets are paid for through our pay-it-forward campaign where members of our community can donate and purchase tickets on behalf of those who can’t afford it".
