The biggest GAY TIMES Honours ever has just got bigger.
We are thrilled to announce that Benny Drama will be flying over to London specially to host GAY TIMES Honours 500 on 21 November.
One of Instagram’s funniest queers, Benny Drama – real name Benito Skinner – makes millions laugh every month with his pop culture parodies, short-form comedy skits, and hilarious original characters.
The actor and comedian is also our latest Gay Times Magazine cover star to mark him being the host of our flagship event. You can buy his cover here.
During his cover story interview, Benny told us that he’s already working on his opening monologue, and we’re preparing ourselves for a costume (or wig) change or two.
GAY TIMES Honours 500 is about celebrating trailblazers who have had a profound impact on the lives of LGBTQ people and that’s why for us, Benny and his comedy is perfect for this momentous occasion packed full of queer entertainment.
We also have the world’s biggest drag pop star Pabllo Vittar flying in from Sao Paulo to give a show-stopping performance.
What’s more, we will also have world-renowned talent Honey Dijon host a very special DJ set into the early hours.
We have plenty more performers and surprise hosts to announce in the coming weeks, so keep an eye on our socials.
This one-night-only queer event will take place at the striking new venue Magazine London, and promises to be an unmissable party complete with complimentary cocktails, a dazzling iridescent ‘future’ booth and extravagant walkabout performers.
Food trucks will be open all night for party revellers, who are guaranteed surprise announcements on the day.
