Amy Zing is the co-founder of queer clubbing movement Sink The Pink, and founder of Margate Pride and youth group OUT Margate.

Alice talks to queer scene supremo Amy Zing. Along with her best mate Glyn Fussell, Amy co-founded the influential club night Sink The Pink. 

Since its inception in East London over a decade ago, Sink The Pink has outgrown venue after venue, becoming one of the biggest alternative club brands in the country and helping bring drag into the mainstream. The Sink The Pink team have gone on to develop the hugely popular queer pop music festival Mighty Hoopla, and club night Savage.

After moving from London to Margate, Amy founded Margate Pride and the queer youth group OUT Margate. She also had a baby!

We talked about Sink The Pink’s changing demographic and the power of going mainstream, the special relationship between women and gay men (and the term ‘fag hag’) and Amy’s experience juggling being a mum with working in nightlife.
