They Say: “Have you ever attended a mainstream club or a gay club and had a great time but felt you didn’t quite fit? Ever wished there was a better gender balance on your nights out? Ever wanted to be surrounded by people just like you? Ever thought a bi club night would be a swell idea? Well, so did we! And Greedy was born.
Anyone of any gender or sexuality is welcome to Greedy, just bear in mind that you may have people from a variety of genders chatting you up, so come prepared with your polite ‘no thank yous’.”
