I cannot tell you how much I miss nightclubs. I’m sure I’m not alone and I know there’s a lit worse things going on but wow, that feeling of walking through the doors of somewhere like Hï Ibiza, SWG3 Glasgow or Printworks London with the place at capacity can’t be matched.
Thankfully, it seems that there may be some light at the end of the tunnel this year and I’m keeping it all crossed that we will get back to the dancefloor later this year. In the meantime though, fans of the nightlife phenomenon Glitterbox are in for a treat with the release of their debut feature documentary, Where Love Lives.
Exclusive to YouTube and free to view, the three-part event will kick off with sets from Glitterbox’s world-class DJs, moving seamlessly into the film’s world premiere.
Where Love Lives is a story of music’s enduring power to manifest diverse and inclusive community, and the power of that community to accept and embrace, to liberate, even to save lives. It’s a story of acceptance and creative expression – empowered, enabled and soundtracked by club music. Glitterbox ambassadors Lucy Fizz, TeTe Bang and The Mx Fit take centre stage, opening up about the deeply personal moments that brought them to their calling in clubland, and what they found there that made them stay.
Through extensive exclusive interviews with titans of nightlife culture, Where Love Lives contributors Billy Porter, Honey Dijon, Kathy Sledge, Kiddy Smile, John ‘Jellybean’ Benitez, Kae Burke (House Of Yes), Fiorious and many more explore how those driven to the margins of society are welcomed unconditionally to the centre of the dancefloor.
Where Love Lives will be premiered exclusively across YouTube on Thursday 18th March 2021 at 8pm GMT.
