The typical CSD did not exist this year for corona reasons, that was clear long ago. According to the CSD e.V.. play everything on the net, because probably no demonstration would be approved anyway.
Now things are going well with Corona in Germany and demonstrations are allowed again – and besides weird “Hygienedemos”, Attila Hildmans and other strange people extremely important and probably as urgent as not in a long time, when we look at the world next to Germany.
Someone found that in Berlin and registered a demo as a Pride Parade. No advertising, no trucks, no alcohol. Politics instead of partying. Of course, much smaller than a typical CSD but all the more important – even here.
This “Gaypride” was a little bit like that Enough is Enough Demo years ago… And still important. The fact shows that, that there were obviously several situations during the parade, in which participants offended, were thrown and even assaulted….
I wrote before years ago, that the Berlin CSD is all the more important, since it's probably the eastern safe CSD. And even if this parade bore the world-famous name Gaypride, it stays that way. Even if there were the above situations, you are safe here and half the country is not like in Poland “LGBTIQ” Free zone….
By the way, most of the participants left space and wore masks….
The time between Christmas and New Year is a special and a quiet one. And it is a time, which I mostly live in at home Hamburg spend, where I meet friends and family and generally have a good time.
But it is also the time, in which the bars and discos are empty for a few days or have closed completely. Even the Hamburg Reeperbahn is extinct on these days and also Olivia Jones‘ Empire has been there for a while.
Incidentally, that is the reason, why I have all the people at Olivia (out of Eve Champagne) don't know everyone. Because I'm not in Hamburg, when the shops are open and when I am in Hamburg, the stores don't open. A vicious circle.
It was different this time just before New Year's Eve. Leo and Helge called to the Studio Lovemasters Pre NYE Sause and there the party on St. Pauli should be and since Eve wanted to go there and me and some of her friends, invited them to preheat.
And that was it… As I wrote on Facebook the next day?
Go a hairdresser with a dog mask, a travesty Warhorse, they Hula Hoop Artist, Ne burlesque media-whore, still ne Transe, a guy with whom you would buy a home savings contract and a mettler together at a party… And since fall actually hardly.
I, it was like this. A cool collection of people in Eve's kitchen.
Then Leo said, that we noticed. At least not negative, however.
What kind of party was that?. I think that was the largest collection of beautiful people, that I've ever come across. Everyone was beautiful there. And especially if you thought: wow, they all look good here, then a group of beautiful people came in again.
And I don't mean beautiful in the Heidi Klum supermodel beauty ideal.
groDa were Freaks, Outsider, Fetish models, Gothics, Trannies just normal people and what white for people but actually everyone carried an aura with them, who testified “I'm great at my job and I know it too – But today I'm here to just have fun”
Nobody was at this party to advertise for themselves but between “the days” To meet friends and have an evening of fun. One of the best parties, that I experienced for a long time.
Of course we were the last to go home….
In which “home” in this case a few more drinks in Eve's pub “Old Sailor” meant….
It is known that I am a Hamburg plant, which (especially) decided at some point because of the nightlife, turning our Hamburg back and to move to Berlin.
At that time there were almost no Drags in Hamburg and I could see the visible Drags in Hamburg at most count one and a half hands (and since then I've been nice included), which then usually also mostly complete at one of Olivia Jones Royal Chicken Club Parties were present.
Olivia had not her neighborhood Empire yet was only 2008 landlady and thus all the girls around them not, Nicky Dynamite was not also not in Hamburg and many other visible, not created or simply not there yet. Meanwhile has since done a lot in Hamburg.
Now there is a documentation of the Queens neighborhood of, which is very great, although certainly shows a very limited picture. The documentation is “Queer Life in the City 4 – Queens of Hamburg” and I could see they already fully. I need you as from today by four parts look, but they are very engaging.
Part 3 – is still
are actually interviewed four generations of Hamburg phenomena. Firstly, the Grande Dame of the landscape Lilo Wanders, the lot has to tell. second Olivia Jones Part thereof is slightly smaller, for the third Valery Pearl and last a Veuve Noir.
Part 4 – is still
Anyone who has a bit of insight, quickly realizes that this is because in Lilo, Olivia and Veuve to members of Olivia Jones family is and Valery some first steps made even with Olivia's Parties. In addition, there are both Lilo as well as Valery Pearl already when I was still living in Hamburg was when Olivia.
(2009) Lilo Wanders
There must also give new blood from the now walking to the end of decade, that does not come from Olivia's network. It would therefore certainly other Queens in Hamburg, where.
Part 5 – is still
Nevertheless, it is really exciting to watch. The ladies have a lot to tell.
But to be honest I have Olivia also due to some, the first Parties, have visited the, were their. After they came from Berlin to Hamburg again (where they pottered few years) , reanimated them their Royal Chicken Club and it should have been people, the weeping, came as the mail. I felt definitely that time safe enough, because to go and dance. I was anyone still too shy back then to address, but was approached by Olivia herself, the a few words exchanged with me, What has me very well done. Valery Pearl, who was there also, I dared not then to address.
Part 6 – is still
Valery I then but on many of their own parties and Hamburg CSDs know and love learned. I have still a small laminated card, I won times as terribly lousy Madonna copy, of my life-long free admission and a welcome drink on their “Pearls of the Night” Party grants. Unfortunately, there is no more. You can to Pink Inc. can rewrite?
(2010) – Gaypride Hamburg
What has made such in their past Lilo Wanders, know well about each 30, Olivia is a very political and very enlightened by their individual personality, is probably known, Valery advocates for refugee and is – if I remember me honorary medal lady with the Sisters PSI. Only about Veuve I honestly do nothing. Your I have never met, since Olivia bars always have break, when I'm in Hamburg.
Part 7 – is still
No matter. What I wanted to say. Check it out, is really exciting, what the ladies have to tell so everything.
(2009) in Hamburg
And as Goodie for all, who read up to here, another picture from the poison cabinet 2007 for the whole hard-boiled. To prevent eye cancer, I link it only 😉 And, I want to see it…
Okay, on 10. January 2020 we all need to look again Netflix, because (apparently today) Netflix has a “AJ & The Queen” asked trailer into the net.
I’m a Drag Queen on a cross-country tour.
Okay, at what this reminds me now?
Ru Paul as “The Queen”, in a (not pink) Camper full of drag stuff and clothes, (apparently) because a child by the (not Australian) Outback (for mother?) frightened drives, while some experienced and rednecks in dress. To Lola's “Kinky Boots” Windows occurs, a little like Pray Tell speaks and acts and talks as well as otherwise scolds at Drag Race..
