In the public gallery at last night’s Town Council meeting, some were concerned about the upcoming rainbow FABAlice Festival; others were focussed on the fate of Julian Assange. KIERAN FINNANE reports.
Mascara was streaming down their faces in torrents (whose idea was it to have the spectacle at the hottest time of the day – 39 degrees?) but there was no stopping the drag queens in town for the first FABalice festival, and the locals just love a parade: They packed into the Mall.
