ABNORMALS ANONYMOUS Glasgow School of Art, Glasgow. Fri 13 Jun

It's been a while, but thankfully the antithesis of the gay clubbing scene is back. Abnormals Anonymous are armed and ready to give the more discerning homosexual a little something different. Kick out Kylie, stick

two fingers up to Steps and prepare to be educated.

Rather than the usual hands -in-the-air disco option, this night will be an eclectic mix of art installations, video and performance. If you‘re not happy with your look for the evening, you can also try a make-over from the talented resident film special-effects artists. 'We want it to be more like an old style club, to create a friendly place where people can hang out,‘ says Alan Millar. AA promoter and organiser. ‘There‘s a loyal crowd who come, from the first event at CCA to Glasgay and now to the art school’.

There will be a live appearance from multimedia performer and remix artist Osymyso as well as resident DJs, the excellent Hushpuppy and Mooncat playing their eclectic homo-disceau from the last four decades. “There are lots of queer-orientated artists in London and Manchester such as Electric and Duckie and I want to bring them north of the border,‘ notes Millar. 'There‘s still nothing like this happening. If it all sounds just a bit too mainstream for you, there will also be the additional bitter-queer political posturing and hi-brow sloganeering that we've come to expect from an AA meeting.‘ (Jane Hamilton)
