H&G Creations set up the non-profit DJ course ‘Glitter Tits’ in 2018 with the purpose of wanting to offer people a safe space to learn how to work the decks and unleash their party monster. With the current nightlife industry being overwhelmingly masculine, the objective of the course is to offer EVERYONE an introduction to DJing in a supportive environment no matter your gender, sexuality or race.
Aimed at absolute beginners with the desire to fill the dance floor, the Glitter Tit’s tutors of 2018 included some of Ireland’s hottest DJ’s (Nialler9, Aimie from Le Boom, Gary O’Reilly from Mix & Fairbanks).
Success has also been seen for Alumni, Greta Sulcaite. Going from diva to full-blown dance-floor-diva, she has performed at events such as Lumo Club, Spinster and our very own Halloween festival Tall Tales. Greta is fast becoming one of the hottest rising DJ’s in Dublin – and we are proud mommas.
Glitter Tits x International Women’s Day
To celebrate International Women’s and promote the importance of equality, H&G Creations will be hosting a free pop-up ‘Glitter Tits’ crash course in the Bernard Shaw for 6 lucky students.
Dylan, a spokesperson for the course, says, “The music industry has a very masculine environment. From experience being the front man in Elm, [a proudly queer pop band] I have felt the need to hold my queerness up and be proud of who I am, and what my brand represents. However, this isn’t always easy. I have been verbally attacked on stage for my feminine clothing. This course is about celebrating the students’ glamness, beauty and inner disco diva.”
For those interested in letting their freak flag fly behind the mixing desk with Aimie Mallon of Le Bo0m, check out the Glitter Tits event page here.
The 6 lucky winners will be given a lesson on the mechanics of DJ decks, beat matching and mixing to give them a taster to what Glitter Tits is all about. No experience is needed. At Glitter Tits, we start from scratch.
