Queens in the Queen’s Head!

Amsterdam has a brand-new monthly drag night! “Queens in Queens” is the name of this monthly drag queen show in café the Queen’s Head, after its third edition on December 30, it's time for the fourth edition on January 27. About time for a talk with Jakko ter Borg, responsible for the entertainment at the bar.


Why a drag night?

“We have the drag bingo every Tuesday and the Sunday winter shows, but we were asked why we did not organize anything with drag entertainment on other days. Other bars, for instance the Lellebel, Amstel 54 and Taboo, organize great drag queen evenings, and recently the new dinner show restaurant Burlesque opened its doors with a spectacular drag show. Now, with a tremendous number of drag talent in Amsterdam, the situation calls for another podium for this talent. It only seemed the natural thing to do.”

What can we expect at ‘Queens in Queens’?
“Initially, we wanted to organize a drag competition. The concept was at an advanced stage when we found out that many drag queens are somewhat tired of competitions, with the exception of the annual ‘Superball.’ Many drag queens liked the idea of working together, ‘just’ to have a great evening. It’s actually quite simple: fierce performances with small games and the craziness of the Queen’s Head during the breaks. All this hosted by two legendary Amsterdam queens, Coby van Dam and Miss Tabitha.”

Miss TabithaWhat makes this night special?
“Because of our spacious stage with elevator, good lighting and sound, drag queens can go all the way on their performance, and of course we have Coby van Dam and Miss Tabitha, hosting the night in their own unique way.”

Who will be performing?
“Each edition, Coby van Dam and Miss Tabitha invite one or two drag queens for performances. The first edition saw Miss Fish 2017 Envy Peru and newcomer Boo ChaCha on stage. We try to find a contrast. Envy Peru is now the most popular Dutch drag queen on Instagram, while Boo ChaCha, with her perfect lip-sync skills, is a talented newcomer. That first edition was such a success, that the next edition on December 30th will use the very same team.”

Who can participate?
“Everyone! We are still looking for drag queens who would like to perform in 2018. Those interested can send a message to the Queen’s Head on Facebook. It will reach Coby and Tabitha.”

Finally, when is it taking place?
“The next ‘Queens in Queens’ is Saturday January 27, at 21:00. In 2018, we will have a show every last Saturday of the month.”
