The Pansy’s Birthday shows of Pansy’s House of Presents!

Dalaa for Giezas Poke House June 9 by Suzanne Forbes July 8 2020So 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.

Katana Six for Giezas Poke House June 9 by Suzanne Forbes July 8 2020So I am very glad to be able to see every single Poke House and House of Presents show, for this period of time.

You can watch Gieza’s Poke House and Pansy’s House of Presents in Quarantine EVERY TUESDAY at 21:00 for The Poke House and 22h CET for House of Presents!

And see new-to-the-Pokehouse performers like the marvelous, gorgeous Katana Six!

Alexander Cameltoe for Pansys House of Presents June 9 by Suzanne Forbes July 8 2020Always 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.

Pansy by Suzanne Forbes July 9 2020Note, 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!

BIG NEWS: Pansy’s Pop-Up Pantry is HAPPENING Aug 2!!!

Pansy has been doing a fantastic series 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.

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: they are pregnant!

Please check Godxxx’s Drag King Don’t Rush challenge, you will faint. Godxxx aka Adrian Blount is doing a Youtube series on Queer Birthing!

And you can give funds to help their baby have a lush nursery right here.

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.
