Big Gay Disco Bike

Fatt Projects

Birmingham

2021

Big Gay Disco Bike is exactly what it sounds like, a feel-good pop-up big gay disco performed on a bike.

Join cabaret superstar, vocal powerhouse, and overwhelmingly modest (and not at all delusional) drag icon in the making, Fatt Butcher on the golden disco bike as we bring the D-I-S-C-O directly to you. Because babes, anywhere can be a dance floor!

About Big Gay Disco Bike

Big Gay Disco Bike is a mobile queer disco on a bike. Hosted and performed by drag artist & vocalist Fatt Butcher (Adam Carver), BGDB is a small-scale intervention with large scale impact transforming public spaces, festival sites, and the open road into an interactive disco with live music, dancing, comedy, and a big dose of glamour.

Responding to the post-covid world, BGDB empowers local communities to create their own dancefloors, celebrate themselves & connect, whilst subtly challenging perceptions of queerness in public space. The work is intentionally flexible to allow for multiple presentation possibilities.
