Wigstöckel Transgender United 2016
6.-9. Oktober 2016
Since 1996, Wigstöckel - an event by trans*people for trans*people - has been taking place in Berlin. During the years, the glamourous show has been extended to a little festival that includes further events. For us, "transgender" is an umbrella term for all people who do not fit into the mainstream binary gender expectations. This year, we celebrate 20 years of Wigstöckel!!!
Thursday, 6.10., 11pm: Wigstöckel goes PopBox at SchwuZ
PopBox ist the new pop living room at the Electronic Thursday at SchwuZ. Various 'inhabitants' by the SchwuZ staff turn the area between hallway and entrance to the dance floors into a Lounge that contains a bar and a Jukebox-DJ. On Oct 6th, Wigstöckel is the guest in this party lounge space! You can meet the team that organises Wigstöckel, there will be a make-up space and some drinks served by us plus music! If we're lucky, you can also get the freshly printed copy of Wigstöckel X-Press, the magazine to the festival. Don't miss it!
Location: SchwuZ, Rollbergstr. 26. Entrance fee: 6 €
This summer, Sharleen Voyage, ausgehDörte, Kristelle Airlines, Betty BücKse and Kaey have started an event at Ludwig, a new bar and art space in Neukölln. Wigstöckel will show the film Film Wigstock - the Movie that portrays the New Yorker Festival which inspired the founding queens of Wigstöckel Berlin. Later, there'll be a show including the Ludvixxen-Queens plus star guest Viola who is also a member of the Wigstöckel Team.
