She performed live for the “Let it Snow” special with Lola Rose!

It was my first time drawing wildly charming Miss Judy and I had such fun. She is so pragmatic, so wise, so funny. Check out this Taimi video to hear about her inspiring journey from Tel Aviv to Berlin’s drag scene and find out how drag saved her life!

Miss Judy has lots of other performances online. You will love them 🙂

Each number had a different look and the wigs were flying.Lola Rose winter show by Suzanne Forbes May 27 2021

Lola Rose is one of my very favorite Berlin performers, and this show was a thrill.

Lola has two new livestreaming shows coming Feb 3 and 10th, from Tipsy Bear’s stage.

Lola’s 2nd annual Black His/Herstory (Theirstory) Month show will run two Wednesdays of February with ten performers altogether. Five performers each week with a variety of burlesque, drag, stand up, theatre, & singing. The lineup is fantastic!! Even if you can’t catch the show, you can contribute to the money pool here to support these Black performers during this hard time.

The coolest Goths in town: Christina Corpse and Antina Christ!

Christina Corpse for Poke House and Pansys House of Presents livestream October 31 2020 by Suzanne ForbesI adore gorgeous gothic newlyweds Christina Corpse and Antina Christ.

They have the most creative style, the wildest performances, the sharpest aesthetic. Above is Christina from one of Gieza’s Poke House livestreams this past summer, when it seemed like Christina and Antina had a new mini-movie for every show. It took me forever to finish this drawing because I loved the performance so much, I wanted to live up to it! The movies these two spooky cuties made this year would be an art-house smash reel (when there are arthouses again; in Berlin, there will be).

Christina is a visual artist as well as performer and moviemaker, and does cartoons and illustrations for benefits and events in the drag community! Christina is married to Antina Christ, the Daughter of Seitan. (It never gets old, I still laugh every time I read it). They perform together as well as separately. You can see their adorable Coin-Operated Boy duet here in the archives of Christina’s shows!

Antina Christ for Pansys House of Presents livestream November 26 2020 by Suzanne ForbesAntina’s performances are all different.

This one was glitchy and mime-y. Mesmerizing! Antina is a legacy member of the House of Presents, and has performed many times; here are other drawings of her at Monster Ronsons and from the summer of livestreams.

Antina Christ at Pansys House of Presents November 26 2020 by Suzanne ForbesHere Antina read us a very moving piece about queerness and gender identity.

She always looks so pretty, with the most gorgeous hair and makeup (“Priestess from another planet, but make it ooky-spooky!” she describes it) and cutest dresses.

Antina Christ at Pansys House of Presents October 31 2020 by Suzanne ForbesThis was Antina’s Halloween show!

Halloween this year was the last IRL Poke House/House of Presents show at beloved Berlin clubhouse Monster Ronsons. Maybe the last ever, if things go badly. So I am very glad that it was a knockout of a show, and was livestreamed for accessibility. Antina did a slasher revue!

Antina’s regular Insta is here, her MUA account is here, and her website is here. Christina’s insta is here, her Youtube channel is here, and her graphic work is here. I am honored to share a community and a city with these incredibly multi-talented beauties.
