Halloween in Queer Homes. They had a hell of a good time there!
It is a tradition to have costume parades and parties on October 31st, on the eve of All Saints’ Day. Scary parties, as a rule.
Though Halloween came from the Celtic festival Samhain and it is originally from Scotland and Ireland, now it is celebrated all over the world, and regarded as international. Halloween became popular in Ukraine too, and it gets more and more fans year by year.
Our Queer Homes were no exception. The other day Queer Homes in Odesa, Kyiv, Zhytomyr and Zaporizhia hosted very funny Halloween parties.
More than fifty people in costumes of different characters gathered in Odesa Queer Home. You could meet scary and not so scary characters, zombies, catwomen, dead fiancées, a Frankenstein, evil doctors, male witches, witches and vampires. The Odesa LGBT chorus sang for this diverse crowd, and a mysterious female soothsayer foretold the future by means of runes. Also, there were different contests, for example, a demonology quiz, contest for the scariest costume, for the most artistic character.

According to the conditions of one contest the guests, who came to the party without a costume, could make it by themselves. They got three minutes time, three random things from the sack, a couple of tools, and voilà, the costume is ready. Then a body art studio and a face painter helped all interested to perfect their Halloween character image.

The activists of Zaporizhia Queer Home put together the program by themselves. They prepared refreshments, held different contests, and finally held a monster’s ball.
The event which took place in Zhytomyr was very funny too. The guests could enjoy contests, quizzes, and witch dances. The drag queens bought a new entertainment show, and there was a disco at the end of the party.
