"Alongside growing safe nightclub spaces in East London, once a month the chaos of HUNGAMA reigns over an eclectic crowd of acceptance and beauty. A South Asian queer club night was borne from a passion for Bollywood music, gender-bending, and free love. A site of celebrating shared journeys and differences particularly amongst the South Asian diaspora, where folks can live out their true identity in performance and drag. HUNGAMA channels the defiance of this generation to reject the confines of familial and societal expectations of marriage, 9-5 work, and heteronormative religious pressures. The closet has become too crowded and dark; freedom of movement and self-expression is a necessity to survive the dreariness of corporate London. Having all come from places where there is inherent anxiety with being in or out of the closet, where everything about identity is contingent on the approval of others, there has been a lot of internalised shame to dance off together. The quirky and tender dynamics of support, adoration, and the encouragement to unlearn shame by causing a bright scene of fabulosity."  @shirishah
