London’s queer artists and drag queens were among the first to adapt to the online life when the lockdown arrived. Now east London LGBTQ+ venue The Glory has taken the virtual party one step further by organising a global three-hour drag and queer arts festival.
The fest is a digital incarnation of The Glory’s monthly variety show, Boulangerie. For the ‘Home Delivery’ edition, viewers will be treated to an international line-up featuring Brooklyn drag legend Merrie Cherry, burlesque star Smashlyn Monroe and Berlin-based drag queen Ghost Elektra. It will all be streamed on Twitch for a suggested donation of £3 or $5, and each performer will provide a PayPal.me link to help supplement incomes affected by lost work (also, tipping is just good manners, honey).
Grassroots doyenne of subversive delights Wanda Whatever will be your host for an evening of lip-synching, death dropping and drama. Tune in 7pm BST/2pm EST, depending on your time zone.
