Bestival 2012. The year of the Sink The Pink takeover!







As we told the Bestival Blog, being at Bestival was one of our original inspirations behind the birth of Sink The Pink.  So to be back this year with our own tent, performing every night until the wee hours was magical for us.

This year our troop of merry men descended upon the Isle of Wight for another year repping Sink The Pink on the island.  Our amazing Sink The Pink set design team made up of members of our scene and led by Luk E Vandenberg decorated an incredible arena called The Grand Palace of Entertainment. 

                                     
The theme for this years Bestival was wildlife, the Sink The Pink crew were the TRANIMALS, and the set reflected this too! Amazing!






In the day it featured acts including Scottee, Let's Get Quizzical and Gay Bingo and every night from 1am was the Sink The Pink takeover. 

Performers included East London legend Jacqui Potato, pop god Bright Light Bright Light, DJs James Phillips, Prince Nelly, Gutterslut and the full Sink The Pink dance and tranny crew.  We also led daily keep fit classes with Mr Motivator, getting seas of crowds lunging and squatting.  Another highlight has to be leading the fancy dress parade on Saturday, we were like the pride float, with jock straps, leather queens and camp tranimals punching the air to Lets Have a Kiki.  We really brought the rainbow to Bestival this year and the crowd loved it.



For anyone new to Sink The Pink who discovered us whilst wandering late at night, welcome to the gang!  We are so happy to bring the fun and love to more people.  We are overjoyed at the amount of love we have received since!






















And a final salute to our tranimals!

Luke, my handsome beauty, up a ladder hanging lovingly handmade glittered creations all week, and designing and planning for months in advance.  What you have created for Sink The Pink is beyond our wildest dreams.  Luke loves and lives our scene so much that he has given up a summer of festivals and paid work to create this labour of love.  Only good things can come from such commitment and love, I can see the ripples of apprecitation and love that will come back to you from such kindness, talent and dedication to what we have created here.  I fucking love you and all that makes you you.

My wife, Glynda Glyne Hot Fuss Foosetta, the best friend that 4 years ago I sat with as we planned our dream club night, look what we've created!  Your utter ridiculousness on the mic is breathtakingly wonderful and your visions for Wembly arena sized stage shows fill me with complete joy, may it always continue!!

It is great because you are all great, I can't thank you all enough, other than to say, keep coming to the club and being a part of making it as great as it is!  Its a community, it works because we're all here for each other, keep it alive, tell your friends, STP is for for everyone!
We freaking love you all tranimals, thank you for everything you gave to this weekend.  May the fun continue!!

(Ooh i got a bit early Destinys Child where they used to pray for each other at the end of the album there, soz!!!)

SO, NEXT THEN.....Oct 6th, BGWMC, our 4th bday, be there!
