Fab Facts – Ladypat πŸŒˆπŸ’•


He has made over 100 music videos for Queer Icons such as Boy George, Adamski, Scarlet Fantastic and of course, Boogaloo Stu! πŸŒˆπŸ’•

“The quicker they date the better!” was Ladypat’s unofficial stance on his music videos! πŸŒˆπŸ’•

He has an official Giphy account with over 4 BILLION views!! πŸŒˆπŸ’•

Ladypat originally got his name from calling everybody “Lady!” and so the tables were turned on him. However, he also regards the name as an assault on class, gender and punctuation! He has been misgendering himself for over 20 years now! πŸŒˆπŸ’•

Ladypat used to VJ in a burnt wedding dress with comedy dog cone of shame (alsatian size)! His electroclash ‘look’! πŸŒˆπŸ’•

He accidentally transmitted his Gaydar profile all over the screens Live at the Exit festival in Serbia during his VJ days! πŸŒˆπŸ’•

He has never had a showreel, CV or even a business card! Instead he has been proudly publishing his videos on his own website ladypat.com consistently since 2001 – one of the internet’s longest- lived URLs! πŸŒˆπŸ’•

Ladypat once spent 10 years living off and on in India soaking up the vibes. He says that “the veil” is “thinnest” there. Fancy that!! πŸŒˆπŸ’•

In 2005 Ladypat uploaded a music video made entirely from GIFs – a world first! πŸŒˆπŸ’•

Despite a huge archive of digital art he has never published an NFT, believing them to be “heinous” and a “buzzkill”! Crikey!! πŸŒˆπŸ’•

Ladypat started exhibiting his fuzzy felt artwork in 2019 at Homotopia festival in Liverpool courtesy of Duovision – pride of place went to two gigantic Prisoner Cell Block H murals! He has somehow managed to include a fuzzy felt portrait of Debbie Harry in every exhibition since.
Atomic! πŸŒˆπŸ’•

He was awarded “Champion Reader” by BUSTER comic in 1981 and was set to be interviewed live on air by Sue Lawley on BBC’s current affairs programme Nationwide. However, serial killer ‘the Yorkshire Ripper’ was sentenced that day, so baby Pat lost his slot. Eek! πŸŒˆπŸ’•

In 2008 Boy George went on the Richard and Judy Show which also aired his Ladypat video “Yes We Can”. “That could almost be the new Band Aid video!” quipped Richard, tragically. πŸŒˆπŸ’•

In 2017 Yoko Ono & Imagine Peace campaign & Hifi Sean released the animated video by Ladypat for ‘In Love with Life’ via Pitchfork! Major! πŸŒˆπŸ’•

Ladypat in collaboration with Bearsta presented a legendary clothing line ‘MINGLAND’ in 2007 – a blueprint for the nation ever since! πŸŒˆπŸ’•

Both Stu and Pat share the same favourite singer: Billy Mackenzie of Associates. Stu’s favourite single of all time is Associates- Party Fears Two and Pat’s is the follow-up Club Country. Stu, Pat AND Billy were all born in Scotland! McFab! πŸŒˆπŸ’•
