Additionally, if you’re looking for something a little different in the lead-up to the big day, HONEYPOT is collaborating with Slaughterhouse on June 22 for an evening of cult horror and live electronic music in aid of Trans Harm Reduction.

The collectives are taking over The Complex Depot to screen the modern cult favourite Jennifer’s Body, and as well as the screening, attendees can expect music performances from some of the city’s most exciting queer talent.

Tickets are €14 plus fees, with all profits going directly to Trans Harm Reduction, a volunteer-run, grassroots harm reduction organisation helping trans people in Ireland and Scotland.
