Drag queens on tour
Gigi LaPajette from Salzburg and eight of her Austrian drag queen colleagues have been performing on Austria’s cabaret stages for some time now. The last show was last Saturday at “Gigi’s Rosa Stadl” in the Marienbräu in Graz. Over the next few months, the queens will be touring throughout Austria with a changing line-up – drag queens on tour.
Last Saturday, 11.11.2023 Gigi’s Rosa Stadl celebrated its premiere in Graz. As a continuation of the Oktoberfest in Salzburg, around 100 fans came together at the Marienbräu in Graz and celebrated a proper drag show and party with Gigi LaPajette, Mademoiselle Giselle, Miss LaThoya, Jodie Fox, Alexa Glossy and Donna Malefica.
After the Stadl is before the event. And so Gigi will be celebrating a pre-Christmas drag show in her hometown of Klagenfurt on 2.12.2023: Jingle Balls. Together with Grazia Patricia from Vienna and Trina Crystal from Salzburg, the three of them will include the audience in pre-Christmas game sessions in addition to show interludes and create a great atmosphere at the Soundclub in Klagenfurt’s Bahnhofstraße with a raffle, scrap metal giveaways and sexy elves. Tickets are available from the hairdressing salon “Kamm 2 gether” in St. Veiter Str. 136 in Klagenfurt.
Christmas, wonderful & funny it will be on 16.12.2023 in Innsbruck. Sindy Sinful, the Tyrolean drag queen, singer and magician invites you to Sindy’s Angels at Brux in Innsbruck. Five drag artists from all over Austria are on board: Betty Pearl (Kufstein), Miss LaThoya (Burgenland), Klara Mydia and Syphia Lis (both Klagenfurt) and Gigi La Pajette (Salzburg) are drag queens who have been performing together irregularly for two years. This group is already well known in Vienna, Salzburg and Klagenfurt. Together they will now provide a Christmas drag festival in Innsbruck with live singing, comedy and entertainment. Tickets are available online here
Gigi’s Brunching Divas is then on the tour schedule on 21.01,2024. On the 14th and 15th floors of the arte Hotel Salzburg, you can enjoy a great brunch with a magnificent view of the city on the Salzach and show entertainment by Gigi LaPajette (Salzburg), Miss La Thoya (Burgenland), Mademoiselle Giselle (Vienna) and Sindy Sinful (Tyrol). The brunch on 21 January is the third event in this series. As many guests were unable to gain admission in November because the event was fully booked, we recommend booking tickets early.
The events mentioned above are just the next three. Because the Queens are busy and are already working on many other event formats for next year. Everywhere in Austria. So we can certainly look forward to more creative show formats from the Austrian drag queens next year. (pege)
