WHAT IS FIERCE QUEEN?
It's drag but it's not a show. It's a competition but it ain't no pageant. Fierce Queen is a live reading of Vancouver’s hottest or newest queens (OR KINGS, OR BIO OR NONBINARY) and experienced talent alike, and I do mean LIVE. READING.. can you survive the judgement?? A cash prize will be given to the new Fierce Queen PLUS you’ll get to be on the judging panel for Fierce Queen Seattle w/ Aja (6/21) AND Vancouver (8/04)
HOW TO SIGN UP
Post on the Facebook Event Page (tinyurl.com/fiercequeen ), a photo of your look and tell us you want to compete! We'll select the contestants and notify you, tell yo' friends.
WHY IS FIERCE QUEEN HAPPENING?
Good question, thank you for asking. There are several reasons Fierce Queen is happening. First off, Nark Magazine events have been graced by many fantastic queens and kings, and some of which were on their path to mega stardom, and that needs to continue on. However, even more importantly than that, it's about keeping drag FUN, not just for the queens but for the audience too, it's an interactive session, and the judges will certainly be letting you know how they feel, don't give us attitude without some fierce to back it up. We know talent hides under more than just one pair of fake lashes out there and we can't wait to see it! This isn’t a show where you just watch a carousel of queens perform, they’ll be puttin’ in the work or getting the chop!
HOW DO I BECOME THE FIERCEST QUEEN?
It's gonna take more than a twirl and a pair of jazz hands to win this prize henny, you have to impress a couple of queens that have been around the block, and they will probably be drinking. You're reading will NOT wait til after the show, so better pay attention. The judges will be reading you for your track choice, creativity, look, moves and your lip syncing or singing DURING your performance, not after, there will also be a question and answer period and a final battle between the top two queens.
Other queens will go home with a t-shirt or a hand-job or something.
