Legendary nightlife phenomenon, Glitterbox, has shared a new documentary highlighting the need for subculture spaces and featuring Billy Porter, Honey Dijon, Kathy Sledge and more.
“Dancefloors can unify people in ways governments and religions can’t and I stand by that shit 100%” – Honey Dijon
Glitterbox’s ‘Where Love Lives’ documentary, which premieres tonight on YouTube, tells the story of acceptance and the need for creative expression, showcasing how music and the dancefloor provides solace and creates an inclusive community, saving lives through acceptance, liberation and empowerment.
In the feature-length film, we are treated to euphoric club moments filmed in New York, Ibiza, Paris and London, as well as meeting some of Glitterbox’s kaleidoscopic family of artists, dancers and queer performers, namely TeTe Bang, Lucy Fizz, and The Mix Fit.
The poignant film also features interviews with titans of nightlife culture, such as Billy Porter, Honey Dijon, Kathy Sledge, Kiddy Smile, John ‘Jellybean’ Benitez, Kae Burke (House Of Yes), Fiorious and many more, to discuss how the dancefloor has embraced marginalised people from all walks of life.
“Do not look for validation on the outside. Be your own validation, speak life into yourself. Find your tribe, find your family, find your chosen family, who understands how to love you unconditionally.” – Billy Porter
Starting as a weekly party in – where else – Ibiza, Glitterbox has now become one of the world’s most talked-about club nights, hosting parties everywhere from London and New York to Amsterdam, Croatia, Australia and more.
