Cybil’s House is a queer oasis of happiness, acceptance and celebration. Conceived and hosted by London’s original 7-foot drag queen Cybil War, the night aims to be a refuge to any waif or stray who needs an escape. A queer cabaret and dance party for when nowhere feels like home.
The visual identity is inspired by Retrofuturism—of a version of the future as seen from the past—and specifically the realisation that many of the sci-fi classics from the 1980s are set in a future that’s already behind us (think Back to the Future, Mad Max, Terminator), the club is a sanctuary where the mutants who’ve never fitted in can come together in one last party before the end of the world.

The ‘No-mo-vember’ event raised over £1,000 for the Albert Kennedy Trust who support homeless LGBT youth, expanding the night’s ethos of being a supportive home for all members of the LGBT community.
