Hostess Thrieza Poke, GodXXX Noirphiles, Gaby Tupper and more at Pansy’s House of Presents!

Godxxx Noirphiles by Suzanne Forbes Feb 19 2020GodXXX Noirphiles is a performer I have been wanting to draw for AGES!

Godxxx Noirphiles by Suzanne Forbes Feb 19 2020 detailBecause they do very interesting performance work, and amazing makeup, and because this boi is so good-looking! So when I saw he was performing at House of Presents on a damp January night, I headed over to Monster Ronsons. Her look was dazzling!

And her performance was a twist: the audience was primed for serious political performance art by the dramatic intro music, then swept into nervous giggles by the embarrassment of a familiar intimate moment.

By the end everyone was whooping with relief at sharing this awkward feeling they knew all too well!

Upcoming GodXXX events:

TODAY Feb 20 is the Black History Month event at Sari Sari Collective, where black folks will bring foods and talk about their history, with performances! On March 13, House of Living Colors will host Spring Awakening at Berghain Kantine.

Gieza Poke as Thrieza by Suzanne Forbes Feb 18 2020Gieza Poke was hosting The House of Presents in lieu of Pansy who was somewhere warm having fun!

And Gieza had an excellent new look involving three heads. This event was the first time I saw Gieza up close in person barefaced – and I almost didn’t recognize her! Gieza was kind enough to arrange disability accommodation for me, reserving a seat with a view. I used to be able to stand up and draw in a crowded club for six hours straight, but those days are long gone!

There was not actually a huge rainbow flag behind Gieza during Auntie’s performance- I just felt inspired to add a lot of color, so I did, which totally violates my normal documentary art protocols but you know what, so what!

Antina Christ and Dunja by Suzanne Forbes Feb 18 2020Before the show started I drew two local beauties chatting at the DJ booth.

Left is goth drag witch MUA Antina Christ, The Daughter of Seitan, and right is Dunja Von K., hula hoop MaÎtress, Creeper and hard-working performer!

Gaby Tupper by Suzanne Forbes Feb 19 2020I loved the 80s styling of Gaby Tubber, who I had never seen perform before.

Did you know Gaby has a fabulous event called TGIF, “Trash Goddess in Film”, a show for film fans and friends of trash?

Please remember that Drag Saves Lives.

I am so grateful to my Patrons on Patreon, who make it possible for me to document Berlin’s queer intersectional performance scene and release the artwork free to all.
