Tenth International Drag Olympics To Be Held During Gay Pride

by our Editors in Events & Agenda , 31 juli 2014


The International Drag Olympics return to the city of Amsterdam during Gay Pride, celebrating its tenth edition this year. Starting out as a friendly soccer match between a small group of sports crazy drag queens back in 2004, the games have grown into the world’s premier sporting event for drag queens and kings.

Competitors from around the globe will battle it out for Olympic Gold in the categories Stiletto Sprint, Handbag Toss, Bitch Volleyball, Pole Dancing and the Hula Hoop.

Organizer and single working mom Jennifer Hopelezz: “Of course the Drag Olympics are more than just a competition of sporting prowess - hair, nails and make-up are just as important. The girls have been frantically training for years and have taken at least a week off from wild partying and boozing to concentrate on the Games. But beauty, poise and frocks are equally important to sporting ability, as are accessories such as jewelry, shoes and handbags. That’s something the judges definitely keep an eye on.”

The Games are open to all drag queens and kings, and anyone with heels wanting to take part can join in. Make-up starts at 5 p.m. and the Games begin at 7 p.m. Qualified beauticians will be on hand for any cosmetic assistance or emergency.

Tenth International Drag Olympics, presented by Gimme Moore & Janey Jacké,
hosted by Jennifer & the House of Hopelezz.


At Homomonument, Westermarkt
Friday, August 1: 7:00-9:30 p.m.
