Twumps (www.twumpsbar.co.uk) is an exciting new pop-up bar coming to Shoreditch's Rich Mix bar from Thursday 17th - Saturday 19th August. Twumps is a replica of President Trump's residence in Trump Towers. From gaudy gold gilt mirrors to showy chaise-longues, the bar is a french renaissance "smack in the face", dripping with crystals and bad dictator taste. 50p from every drink purchased will go to the customer's' choice of one of our local and international charities - specifically selected because, in their own way, they combat the effects of Trump's policies. Many of the issues that affect those in America, at the moment, are issues that affect us here in the UK and are close to our hearts; such as human rights, women's reproductive rights and the aiding of those that are struggling with disenfranchisement. Our charities are: MARIES STOPES INTERNATIONAL | TELL MAMA | KALEIDOSCOPE TRUST | THE WHITE HELMETS. Note for editors, please refer below for further information on such charities. But this isn't a bar for negativity and angst. It's light-hearted, fun and full of acceptance for people from all walks of life. This is a place to take a breath, have a drink and feel like you're doing something positive. If the current political climate is making you crave a drink and a laugh as much as we are... Twumps is for you. We don't know how to change the world, but we can try to help fund those who do. Paul Dillane, Executive Director of Kaleidoscope Trust, said: "During his short tenure, President Trump has appointed anti-LGBT advocates across his administration, scrapped guidance protecting transgender students and repeatedly failed to condemn the persecution of gay men in Chechnya. America's leadership on LGBT rights is in jeopardy and these deplorable actions send a dangerous message around the world where many LGBT people continue to face discrimination and violence because of who they are and who they love. Everyday, we work to create positive change for LGBT rights with courageous activists in 40 countries. Twumps is a fantastic initiative which seeks to counter the worst excesses of the Trump administration and every pound raised will strengthen our efforts for freedom, equality and human rights."
