Transmission May Day Party

Transmission is a London Transgender Club night held monthly in the Extra Time Bar in the Barbican. It claims to be London's hottest reception. It just so transpired that my glamorous friend, the lovely Ms Joanne Starr was arranging a girls night out and asked if I'd come along. Not being one for being couped up indoors on my own I agreed!

Joanne and I chatted on MSN beforehand; although a lot of my other girlfriends would be there, Jo wanted me to surprise them! So we kept Mum about my arrival.

The day of the club arrived and all manner of personal grief had descended... my Nan was in hospital seriously ill, my house sale had fallen through, Angel was away in Canada and I just felt all over the place. Time for break!

I dressed and started out the journey; I'd never been to Transmission before so it was a venture into the unknown made a little sweeter by the prospect of many warm faces I knew being there. I got delayed by almost an hour due to a car crash (not me!) on en route and arrived close to 12.30am. Fortunately there was parking outside, so even though it took me a good ten minutes to parallel park (leave it out, I am a girl after all!) I was able to step right up to the door passing only a few people on the street without notice.

I stepped in and the place was packed with TGirls, many of whom where stunningly dressed. I was beginning to regret my usual Tomboy look, feeling decidedly drab compared to the array of party frocks, short skirts and glamour wear I was seeing. I only had a designer denim skirt, my "Thank God I'm a VIP" ribbed top and body warmer... with trainers! I felt like a lesbian at a fashion show! But everyone smiled and greeted me warmly, so I started to look for my friends.

Went to one end - no sign. Went to the other - no sign. I was starting to feel as confused as a baby in a topless bar! Was this all a wind up! Finally I found my dear old adopted auntie, the lovely Janie Saxton downstairs at the pool table with hot chick Jayne from Cheshire. Phew! Janie took me to see the others who were all upstairs on the dance floor. There were two real party girls, JoYo and Anna, who'd come literally hundreds of miles to be there. Sarah Jayne and Briony were with them as was Zenny and Sandra. Sadly the only person who couldn't make it was Joanne Starr. But we all got gabbing and in no time we were getting on like a house on fire! Next time Jo...

The girls at the end of the night - why do I always blink just when the camera goes?! The two at the front are Briony and Anna (in the red). Behind them is Jayne, me and Sarah Jayne (in white). And at the back row is Janie and JoYo.

Transmission itself takes place on three floors:

  1. The main floor is kinda like a pub. You've got a long bar and plenty of tables with music playing.
  2. Downstairs is the cloakroom as well as the pool table
  3. Upstairs has a dance floor and DJ with a bar. The music is pretty easy going, a mix of hard house and trans-favourite pop tunes like Kylie.

Overall I have to say that the place is real easy going, if it had of been a wind up and none of the others turned up, or if I had just gone there alone, I think it would've been easy to make friends. There were a few guys, with few being the operative word, as well as several genetic women, some who were partners of TGirls there, some lesbians and not forgetting Sammy, who does make overs there. You soon realise that people don't stare at you, if you should catch each others eyes normally you get a smile and a wave and that's all. No awkwardness.

My overall rating for the club out of ten would be eight or nine. It's very welcoming and has everything you need for a good night out. It caters for all ages and styles, has TG friendly hotels all around as well as a small queue of taxi drivers waiting at the end of the night if all that dancing in heels has made your ankles to sore to walk! I personally like it when there are more guys there as I like to drool over the cute ones and I like banging dance music on a huge floor, but then I am young and bi and most people find that quite intense for a night out, so it's no detraction from what Transmission are doing. I had a wicked time even though I was only on lemonade and I'll definitely go again. Transmission costs £7 entry.

Oddly enough something bizarre happened on the way home. I stopped in North London for petrol and got roped into going to an illegal warehouse party by two young fly girls who never realised I was a ladyboy! Major ego boost, not to mention the most risky thing I've ever done in my life dressed! There were over a thousand people raving in a warehouse off Abbey Road industrial estate and the whole place was a police no-go area, total anarchy! Love it! If things had of turned nasty I dread to thing what would've happened... that'll teach me to drive round playing my little sister Nicola's drum n bass mixes!

Transmission Review:

  • Type: Once Monthly Transgender Club Night
  • Location: Extra Time Bar, Long Lane, Barbican, London
  • Entry: £7
  • Facilities: Dance floor, food, drinks, pool table
  • Plus Points: Very friendly and well attended with over 200 TGirls on average, TG Friendly Hotels nearby, a great place to start with
  • Minus Points: Very little chance of getting pulled except by other TVs, although that may be a plus point depending on how you see things!
