Too Desi Too Queer 2022
  • London Fringe

Back for 2022 at hipster central - the Rich Mix, with the return of its legendary Asian queer cabaret and film night Too Desi Too Queer, celebrating and exploring uniquely Asian LGBTQIA+ cultural experience and looking after our mental and physical wellbeing.

The kick-ass cabaret acts are headlined by the now mainstream famous comedian and singer Asifa Lahore, and also includes high energy acts like dancer Kaajel Patel, singer Mista Miss Sirene, drag queen Bolly Illusion and poetry & burlesque performer Bolly Ditz Dolly.

We also have some of the latest shorts from India and Pakistan kicking off the evening:

Baby Steps | 10min | Gay

Nimzo | 17min | Trans Man

Bodies of Desire | 4min | Everyone

The First Session | 6min | Lesbian

Birds of Desire | 10min | Trans Women

This year, to support low income people we ask if you can donate what you can.

This event is proudly supported by the Arts Council England. Plus the support of Film Hub London, managed by Film London. Proud to be a partner of the BFI Film Audience Network, funded by the National Lottery.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
