Earlier this year the first Miss Drag Queen Limburg election ever took place in Maastricht. In the bar of COC Limburg, Café Rosé, a very diverse audience enjoyed the performances by participating drag queens.
The acts, which were announced by D.Licious and Patty Pam-Pam, were as varied as the audience. The diversity of performances did not make it easy for the jury to decide on a winner. Four artists, each with three acts, was what the jury had to choose a winner from. This winner would go home with the title Miss Drag Queen Limburg and matching crown and sash, a set of earrings from Aster Lab, a wig by Dragqueen Wigs owner John Gravenmakers, and a place in the final at the Miss Drag Queen Holland contest on October 21st in Rotterdam. After a great evening, the jury proclaimed Miss Vivaldi the winner.
The initiators John Niessen, known as Drag Queen D.Licious, and Pieter Roberts, known as Patty Pam-Pam, and current Miss Drag Queen Netherlands, regularly organize and present the Spactacular Drag Saturdays. It offers an open stage for drag queens to gain stage experience. In larger cities, such as Amsterdam, there are several events and bars where it is quite normal to step into as a drag queen, but in the province of Limburg, these places are harder to find.
These events are always well attended, and are appreciated by both visitors and drag queens. Besides the drag queens who enter the stage that night and are in the spotlight, there are also drag queens present who just want to have a great night out. Of course, the organizers Patty and D.Licious also show their skills, and there are regular guest performances.
The next Spactacular Drag Saturday will be on November 10. If that is not soon enough, you can visit Café Rosé on September 23 2018 for a Drag Queen Bingo, hosted by D.Licious and Adorabell.
