GutterSlut was born in an old East London strip club in December 2007, having been conceived as a rebellious alternative to the tired and formulaic gay mainstream.
The party is a non-stop playground for freaks and geeks, transvestites, gays, straights, whoever, whatever, you're in!!
GutterSlut residents and founders Per QX, Nic Fischer, Ralf Obergfell, Miss Crystal MC and Elliott J Brown (who moved on to other projects in 2010) called themselves the Dalston Gay Mafia – a tongue-in-cheek name invented for the decadent afterparties they used to hold in their infamous home, an old cheese factory down a seedy Dalston alley frequently used by crack addicts, gangsters and prostitutes.
They roped in one of the parties’ regular attendees –performance artist and alternative drag superstar Jonny Woo – to serve as their muse and GutterSlut was created.
Things started moving and didn’t stop. The cutting-edge music, diverse and creative crowd and knees-up atmosphere made for a unique, sexy, full-on-energy melting pot. Soon the night was a driving force on the London party scene and beyond, collaborating with incredible DJs like Tiga, DJ Hell and Ivan Smagghe, and unsung new talents and performers, to create unforgettable nights in London, Berlin and Stockholm and at festivals like Bestival, Glastonbury, Lovebox, Club Transmediale and Summer Rites.
The Dalston Gay Mafia want to thank everyone who has been supporting GutterSlut over the years.
Rave, slave and misbehave but remember, if you take yourself too serious, sorry, you’re not coming in…
