Hosting SHAZAM 2 - Gays of Future Past at The 86, 185 Smith Street, Fitzroy on Friday 23 January 2015 at 7.30pm, Guy Fi are going all out with more music, Mario Kart, Cosplay and cocktails. All you need to do is strap on some spandex and tear up the dance floor as Melbourne's Queer Geek Dance Party has a repeat performance. Everyone is welcome at this ultimate pop culture party so bring your friends and don't forget your cape. DJs will be spinning your favourite tunes all night long.

The dress code for the night is 'Geek Chic'. The fabulous ArtBoy Gallery are doing it again and providing a prize for the best costume of the night so make sure you're dressed to win.

Polly Filla is back, and this time she's bringing the boys for a special show from everyone's favourite Caped Crusader. Get your ticket now (click here) so you don't miss out. Just remember you can't buy your ticket directly from the venue.

Your hosts Guy Fi spawned of two gay men with opposing views about DC vs Marvel. Their geeky conversations in the beer garden of a gay pub brought out other geeks out of the woodwork to join in this weekly conversation. They suddenly realised that the 'geek' community was strong and gave birth to the Guy Fi Podcast which took their conversations from the beer garden to the world.

If you think that's all they talk about, you would be wrong. They also tackle issues affecting the LGBTIQ community in their own fun and fabulous way and are constantly working towards the expansion of the voice of the community. They're not trying to compete with what's already out there. In their own words, they're standing tall because they're here, they're queer and they love the spandex. Their website looks like a lot of fun so why not bookmark them and keep up to date with their geeky conversations.

As an aside, since DC vs Marvel is the favourite topic around here, you might be interested in an artist callout that ArtBoy Gallery has put out. If you're an artist, head here to check out this DC vs Marvel - ArtBoy vs FanBoy event.
