It’s January! The best time of the year. Christmas comedowns are a
thing of the past. Onwards to the future! Just for you we have an
evening of live music followed by incredible DJs, plus a mini
intersectional zine fair, and of course, haircuts!

We have been
offered a permament home in Hackney, and we are fundraising to cover
the legal costs, and the renovations to make it fully accessible
(including an accessible bathroom) and ready to welcome all the lovely
queers from London and beyond. Our new space will be much bigger,
offering more haircuts, and more free and queer friendly hangout space.

The floor area is 3,300 sq foot, so there is plenty of space for
manoeuvring and getting away from crowds, and there will be plenty of
seating. The toilets are gender neutral and accessible.
