AdvertisementŞugar (pronounced Shoe-gar) is back, and this time with a special 'Pink İstanbul' edition. Pink Istanbul links art, music and people from Amsterdam and Istanbul with an exciting, culturally up to date programme with live acts, djs and performances. In light of recent developments in Turkey towards the LGBTQ+ community, , we're turning up the volume on visibility, solidarity, and activism, through art, dance and music. Let’s celebrate love, freedom, equality and respect and get ready to make some noise!
Sugar (Shoe-gar)* is an open minded party connecting the LGBTQ+ sounds and ballroom scenes of Beirut, Athens and Istanbul. Expect the sounds of the famous scene clubs and hidden parties, house and disco, with electronic Arabic to pumping Turkpop, and from Greek çiftetelli to hiphop beats from the orient and beyond.
These cities are connected through historical, cultural, social and musical ties and Sugar brings all these connections to the stage with DJs, shows, performances and art.
* Sugar means nice, great, hot in the secret gay language of ancient and modern İstanbul.
