"Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring."
— Marilyn Monroe
Often cited as a pop and cultural icon, as well as an eminent sex symbol who played up to her dumb blonde persona.
Beacons Icons and Dykons is a regular night which has queer leanings, showing films and creating performances inspired by them. Tonight we bring you Bristol's best trashy, moving, hit and run performances, all hosted by Tom Marshman and with a very special performance from London based Live Artist Mamoru Iriguchi, who brings you a striptease with a difference.
To top the night off, get cosy and settle into your sits for a screening the critically acclaimed "Misfits".
A sexy divorcée falls for an over-the-hill cowboy who is struggling to maintain his romantically independent lifestyle in early-sixties Nevada.
Directed by John Huston and written by Arthur Miller the film stars Clark Gable, Marilyn Monroe and Montgomery Clift .
It was the final film appearance for both Gable and Monroe
