Are you ready for GCN’s camptastic Eurovision Digital Douze Points Party this Friday? Well, you better get ready! We’ve got everything you need for an evening celebrating the gayest night of the year – including some amazing prizes you could win!
While all us Euro-fanatics are sad there won’t be a live contest this year, we’re not gonna let that stop us from throwing a huge party, so here’s everything you need to know about what’s in store before rushing off to snap up your ticket.
On Friday, May 15, our fave drag king and Eurovision superfan, Julian Mandrews is your host for an evening of Eurovision eleganza. The category is Zoom realness! Julian Mandrews will bring us through his Top Ten Queerovision entries, celebrating the most outrageous and fabulous LGBT+ highlights from the contest’s archives.
The one and only Lesley Roy will also be popping by! Ireland’s Eurovision entry for 2020, with her absolute banger of a tune, ‘Story Of My Life’, may not be at the competition, but that’s not going to stop our Lesley. She’ll be on hand to keep the party swinging, so let’s show Ireland’s own that support we were ready and raring to give on the night.
And like all great hosts, GCN doesn’t want its guests to leave empty handed! We’re on the hunt for the best dressed screen, and we’ve got a few more tricks up our sleeve. Look at the fabulous prizes that could be winging their way to you:
Two tickets to Dadi Freyr in December! The Eurovision smashes will be playing a sold-out gig in Dublin on Saturday December 5 and they have kindly invited two lucky winners to join the party. What do you Think About those Things?!
A Google Home Device! Our super generous friends, the Dublin Gayglers and Allies group have a Google Home Device for one lucky winner. Play podcasts, music, get the weather forecast, use it as a control centre for your smart home – the possibilities are endless!
€100 vouchers from Lifestyle Sports. Trying your best to keep fit during lockdown and social distancing? Lifestyle Sports have got your back, with vouchers to help keep you active, and look the part while you do it!
A €50 virtual gift card from Just Eat, Ireland’s leading online food ordering and delivery app. Just Eat enables you to discover and explore a diverse and exciting choice of restaurants and food from around the world, all available on the Just Eat app. So whether you are ordering breakfast, lunch or dinner to your door, Just Eat has 2,400 restaurants and 40 cuisines around Ireland to choose from!
Five delicious pizza feasts from Dominos Pizza! The marvellous folk at Dominos have prize packages with two large pizzas and two sides from their scrumptious range for you to enjoy. Get your hands on a pizza heaven!
Each prize would include two large pizzas and two sides. You can just send me the winner’s details and I will arrange delivery for them as we don’t have vouchers. If a winner lives outside of a delivery area, they will be invited to collect their prize when the stores reopen for collection. Is that okay?
A glorious hamper of goodies from Fallon & Byrne! Yes, our awesome pals have gathered a veritable feast together for you to enjoy from the comfort of your home. Prepare your tastebuds for an explosion of deliciousness!
An incredible wine hamper from Higgins Off License Clonskeagh! Keep the party going or relax after a hard day with a selection of the best wines available, hand picked by our incredible friends. Staying in is the new going out!
Two bottles of delicious Wilde Irish Gin! Distilled in Ireland using select Irish ingredients, this unique gin is perfect for savouring and enjoying, and their website even offers tips on cocktails you could make at home. Check it out!
Even team GCN couldn’t hold their excitement!
You can also expect the creme de la creme of lip-syncers and drag performers, including the divine Avoca Reaction, the stupendous Butch Chastity, the stunning Ben Panthera, the colossal Enda Danite, the awesome Marian Mary the 6th and the glittering Annie Queries!
