So many incredible performances for Pansy’s birthday!
Dalaa is a fantastic dancer; she was in the first half of the fab evening on Gieza’s Poke House.
If it were not for lockdown, I might never have gotten a chance to draw beauties like Dalaa. Getting across town to Monster Ronson’s is a huge effect for me, and one I am usually only able to make a couple times a year.
So I am very glad to be able to see every single Poke House and House of Presents show, for this period of time.
And see new-to-the-Pokehouse performers like the marvelous, gorgeous Katana Six!
Always a joy to see and draw Alexander Cameltoe.
Alexander’s show for Pansy’s birthday started in their workshop, which is loaded with tool goodness. Intergalactic Trash Prince Alexander answered the Batphone and then proceeded to a gorgeous art-laden altar.
Note, I did not draw Pansy on her actual birthday.
She was dressed as an adorable baby, and I do not like children unless they are my friends’ children. So this is a drawing of Pansy from another show, when she was dressed as an adorable diner waitress bunny!
Pansy has been doing a fantasticseries on her Insta stories called Pansy’s Pantry, where she demonstrates the baking of fabulous treats, with recipe, and provides education and tips for activism. Now the Pantry is coming to IRL life for a hot summer day!
You can pre-order her legendary key lime pie for pick-up here!
And always, I am so grateful to my Patreon Patrons, whose monthly financial support lets me keep documenting Berlin’s queer, intersectional drag performers while I work safely at home.
Favorite muses of mine and new-to-me stars. I was NOT planning to draw during the livestreams of Gieza’s Poke House and Pansy’s House of Presents, as my body is still jacked up from an autoimmune flare, but the performers were so gorgeous and inspiring I couldn’t fight the feeling. Above, breathtaking Martini Cherry Furter, who is a performer, Master of Ceremony, and all around muse. You can see the video capture of Martini’s Sade tribute here! Past Martini drawings here, here and here!
Gieza was Giezzica Rabbit, which slayed me.
I mean you gotta love the look! Follow Gieza on Insta here , start your Tuesday night drag odyssey here on her Twitch, and check out her website for so many cool things (there’s some fabulous looks on display as well as amazing projects!)
The Tuesday night drag show starts at 21:00 CET on Gieza’s Twitch stream, then switches (huh huh huh) effortlessly from Gieza’s to Pansy’s – you are carried along with an international crowd going WOOO in the chat! Join us!!
Above, the divine Mirna Habibi danced like a vision.
I adore bellydancers and have so much respect for the dancers I am coming to know through House of Presents on Tuesday nights. Many are queer refugees and asylum seekers who had to teach themselves to dance and cannot live in their true gender while in refugee housing.
Did you know sexypants charmer Prince Emrah has been doing bellydance workshops on Instagram? follow for news!
Such an amazingly sexy performance, in broad daylight in full drag in an isolated industrial part of Berlin. Follow here and listen to the FKA sound here.
And the last drawing but never, never least: my eternal inspiration Noéline la Bouche!
Gosh it was good to see Noéline, who is such a muse to me, dancing again. Even with the body censorship imposed by the streaming platform! Follow here, site here, and my other Noéline drawings here, here, herehere and here!
The incredibly popular Drag Saves Lives shirts and totes are back in stock at Pansy’s shop. These shirts are seen all over Berlin, including while redacted at redacted. In Pansy’s words:
“Proceeds directly support local drag performers and help keep a scene alive in Berlin. Drag has saved me, what about you?
Our shows have been forced to close for the foreseeable future while Germany is on quarantine. This puts many performers and artists in financial danger with no unemployment security.
Most of us are non-EU immigrants and are not eligible for state support in this weird time. Proceeds from the sale of this shirt will keep us alive until we can get back on stage.
My goal is to be able to continue to pay my performers the fees from the cancelled shows. Addtionally, I want to be able to provide our home Monster Ronson’s with a donation to help them survive as well. Thank you!”
There’s also a beautiful navy/hot pink Pansy’s shirt. Shop to support intersectional Berlin Drag!
edited to add drawing of the glorious Luna TikTok, one of my favorites performers and one of the most gorgeous people in Berlin! which might be from this show, or from the previous week’s! It gets kinda blurry sometimes!
