Fundraising for gender diversity ”Lady Victoria: Her Poessie Album Cantando”

The Faketory presents:
Lady Victoria’s Poessie Album Cantando

Tickets available here!
She finally came out of her closet! And she took her Poessie Album with her!
Victoria False, the drag queen with the most exquisite voice north and south of Paris, is delighted to invite you to her concert on the 18th of December. She started her career as singer in the dark bars of Paris and will give her first big concert in Amsterdam. It will be the very first drag queen concert in the history of Amsterdam! And what a voice, what a performance!

‘I do this for myself and for all my drag sisters around the world, who enjoy less freedom than we do here’, says Victoria. ‘I can walk in the street with my wig and heels, while in Bolivia or Bangladesh great artists and LGBT-activists are beaten up. This concert is my contribution to support all my sisters around the world.’

The concert takes place in the poetic Perdu Theatre at Kloveniersburgwal 86, Amsterdam, at 20:00 the 18th of December. Victoria False and her accordionist, the immaculate Klaas Snijder, will perform 1,5 hours of Musical hits, French Chansons and Amsterdamse Straatliedjes.
The Brazilian Martijn Crowe, principal artist of the Faketory and internationally acclaimed anthropologist, who started the Drag Queens of the World project, is very happy with Victoria False and her contribution.

“We have travelled all over the world and met drag queens from many cultures in their own environment. It has been so exciting over the last few years to meet all these strong women and this concert is the new crown on our work. Victoria and I fell in love the first time she entered my studio in Amsterdam.”

Ladies! We cannot lay back and believe that we don’t have to do anything anymore. We are sure that the tolerance we are so proud of here in Amsterdam only exists for now, and can fade away any moment. Tolerance has to be created again and again and will never be a given fact.
During the show the latest work of the Drag Queens of the world will be presented.
The complete box office income will be used to publish the book Drag Queens of the world, featuring photos and interviews with drag queens from the entire planet.
Tickets are available at www.thefaketory.org, or at the door the day of the concert and at gays and gadgets Spuistraat 44, en de Lellebel Utrechtse straat 4.
