Live-drawing the Live Stream of Pansy’s House of Presents – whoa!

That was delirious!!

Amazing performances by beloved Berlin queers and queens as they quarantine all over town! Pansy, hostess of Pansy’s House of Presents, Berlin’s incredibly popular drag show, and Gieza Poke, hostess of pre-show The Poke House, went live on Twitch last night. Above, marvelous performer Lola Rose showed the empty street her hot pink secret self in a fabulous number recorded earlier in the day.

Below, my first-ever drawing from a livestream, a very bad drawing of Gieza Poke!

Gieza Poke by Suzanne Forbes March 24 2020Drawing from the screen is completely and entirely different from drawing from life.

I have drawn Gieza on three other occasions and never created such a mess.

Pansys House of Presents March 24 2020 by Suzanne ForbesHostess Pansy had wonderful makeup and brought adorable rescue greyhound Tina (“like Tina Turner”) on for a cameo.

I am shocked by how little this drawing looks like her. I have also drawn Pansy before, damn well.

HP Loveshaft for Pansys House of Presents March 24 2020 Suzanne ForbesHP Loveshaft did an incredible and sexy number to “Dancing With Myself” from their hallway.

I made a terrible drawing of this gorgeous drag king! Even though I have drawn them in the past.

Fifi Fantome for Pansys House of Presents March 24 2020 by Suzanne ForbesI do kind of like the drawing I made of Fifi Fantôme dancing on her rooftop!

And I like the one of Lola, as loose and messy as it is. If my Patrons enjoy these goofy drawings, I’ll keep trying every week.

Pansy is doing an incredible thing working to livestream the previously scheduled performances every Tuesday.

She is hoping to raise money to pay the performers, pay beloved queer clubhouse Monster Ronsons the rent she would have paid them, and keep performers’ spirits up.

Gieza’s loving, sassy humor and Pansy’s indomitable message of inclusion, diversity, solidarity and social justice were so revitalizing to me yesterday. The comments in the chat were hilarious too!

You can watch these wild livestreams for free on Twitch (so easy to set up an account) and also easily tip the performers or pay the regular ten euro entry fee if you can.

Gieza’s twitch is here and Pansy’s is here.

You can pre-order merch, including the super popular Drag Saves Lives shirts and totes, here.

I am incredibly grateful to my Patreon Patrons, whose monthly financial support makes it possible for me work safely at home.

T*ts, Bits, and Politics! Extravagant Shambles doesn’t hold back!

Cadbury Parfait at Extravagant Shambles Tits Bits and Politics May 23 2019 by Suzanne ForbesAll the issues were on the table at the latest production of Extravagant Shambles, at beloved queer clubhouse Monster Ronsons.

Of course, there was producer Cadbury Parfait doing her fabulous “Miss Brexit” act, with its EU banner reveal which brings down the house, and the moment when she discards the stinky ol’ British flag, seen above! Her full costume and the EU reveal, below!

Mamouna at Extravagant Shambles Tits Bits and Politics May 23 2019 by Suzanne ForbesDoing “Booty Burlesque”, artist and performer Maïmouna Coulibaly!

She is an actress, director, choreographer and mistress of Booty Therapy.  You can see her dance with the ocean here!

Skirt Vonnegut at Extravagant Shambles Tits Bits and Politics May 23 2019 by Suzanne ForbesSkirt Vonnegut dared to touch the topic of US politics.

There was a wicked reveal! Skirt Vonnegut is always political 🙂

Lord Hicks at Extravagant Shambles Tits Bits and Politics May 23 2019 by Suzanne ForbesLord Hicks sang about “cottaging” in the old days of gay London.

He was hilarious though the topic was tough.

Peaky Blinders at Extravagant Shambles Tits Bits and Politics May 23 2019 by Suzanne ForbesThis performer did a gorgeous genderplay on Peaky Blinders.

Which I haven’t seen yet! Weirdly, since I adore Cillian Murphy. I also adore genderplay burlesque, going back to the 80s when I watched Victor/Victoria on HBO about a million times!

And Stella von Fersen tempted us all as a Devil, but because she stripped down to pasties, I can’t put that drawing here!

Always a pleasure to draw Ms. von Fersen! You might find the drawing on my sexy site, with the title using just my name 🙂

Last but not at all least, comic cosplay got real with incredible pole-dancer Jupiter Gatling and  Queen of Harleens Adrian. Jupiter Gatling and Adrian at Monster Ronsons July 24 2019 by Suzanne Forbes
