Mother City Queer Project 2012

Don’t say you haven’t been warned! MCQP, the Mother City’s queerest Carnival, is due to be held on Saturday, 15th December 2012. That’s less than six months people! South Africa’s finest DJs and acts, and a few of their international counterparts, will keep you amused till the wee hours of the morning. There really is something for every taste. Oh, and speaking of taste, the gorgeous girls and boys, dressed to the nines in their interpretations of the theme, will simply whet your appetite! Venues are also as varied, from the CTICC to Ratanga Junction. The theme for Africa’s ultimate annual costume party event will remain a closely guarded secret until the release date, expected sometime in October (we’ll keep you posted though).
