Legends raise £1,430.84 for Rainbow Fund at their 25th anniversary birthday party.

ON Sunday, November 25, Legends celebrated 25 years at the top of their game, with an afternoon packed with entertainment from drag legends Maisie Trollette, Miss Jason and Lola Lasagne appearing together as J-Lo, Sally Vate and new drag queen on the block, Pat Clutcher.

The venue was packed all afternoon with many old friends and former employees in the audience.

Lola Lasagne summed it up nicely when she said that: “Without Tony Chapman and his two venues Legends and previously Revenge we would not have the gay scene we have today or the amazing voluntary sector organisations that he helped fund over the years through his commitment to community fundraising.”

In the late 1990s, Tony’s venues were pivotal in earning Brighton & Hove the accolade of Gay Capitol of the UK and today when tourists visit the city they continue to flock to this award winning, two floor entertainment complex on the seafront.

£715.42 collected in the buckets was match funded by Tony Chapman bringing the total raised for the Rainbow Fund to £1,430.84.

Special thanks to Danny Dwyer who shook buckets all day on the door and Luke Holloran from the Brighton & Hove LGBT Community Safety Forum who took electronic donations.

The Rainbow Fund give grants to LGBT/HIV organisations who deliver effective front line services to LGBT people in the city.
