Drag Queens, Shemales, Queens Schwuz

schwuzActually, I almost never look at me the newsletter of Schwuz, but this time it seemed to be interesting. He promised a panel discussion

Superstructure in petticoats. The man in dress
If the fagot a dying phenomenon?
Panel Discussion: High-gloss vs.. Courtyard, Political vs.. Glamour, Mainstream vs.. Underground – If the dead fagot?

on the 20th anniversary of the death of Melitta Sundström, Pepsi Boston and Jürgen Baldiga should be thought of the fags, the Berlin have moved in the 80s politically. Moreover, it should be looked forward: What is and exposes the fagot today?

Should discuss Jurassica Parka, Toni transit and Moritz from the Kingz of Berlin, Charlet Crackhouse, Patsy l'Amour laLove, Gloria Viagra, Kaey, Barbie Breakout and Vera Titanic. Charlet was not there, instead Margot Schlönzke came on stage, would fit much better on this topic.


So everything was so, what the complex scene so will bear on stage. The typical drag queens, Queens, Shemales, Kaey with a transsexual, Drag kings and everything in between. It was so exciting – or at least interesting.

It is clear, that it alone in defining the terms transvestite, Tunte, Drag Queen with nine people probably 25 Are definitions and it showed pretty quickly. There were also some Einspieler of this Popkicker-guests, should explain these concepts times… Amazingly interesting and extremely different answers came out of there with.

I think, that these terms are anyway always pure self-definition. The transitions are flowing, but how to be perceived or known by other, it has one anyway no real interpretive

A Barbie Breakout does not see himself as a fag and would probably be referred to by virtually no one so. Sure she's a drag queen. Gloria Viagra however can be both a fagot, go through such as a drag queen, Margot a Schlönzke may be a fagot, a travesty warhorse 😉 , but if she wants, they may also at any time be a drag queen… And if you ask a Tatjana Taft, there anyway just in Berlin “Shemales”. So who cares, what exactly who is? And if it already in such a small “Community” are as many opinions, how is that an outsider can understand – and actually, it is also completely irrelevant. Everyone is, he just plays for themselves or want to be.

Einspieler a score of beautiful popkicker: “I'm not a tranny, I'm a normal person” 🙂

The general consensus was, that fagot always something political in itself has, which does not mean just, that a political man in general is a fag in drag, as you can see even with Barbie for some time.

This also quoted Ru Paul, which said something to the “when I open my with my long eyelashes, it is a political statement” … since it is also because no matter, whether one is straight or glamor tranny gives extra schangelig. Amazingly, in other words, also said that, for example, in a patriarchal Kaey for the world, it is such political, if a man wears women's clothes. I feel consensus.

Surely this is more of the lowest type of policy, yeah, but in my opinion this is absolutely correct. However, I would still point to accept a, the still captures the visibility into. Surely there is another act of, to put on a dress for example Schwuz or so still go out into the public…

It also said many in the closing words “it would have to be put on the road much more – whether out shopping or at Karstadt mouth or anywhere else… But when I think about, Who do outside the Mehringdamm, Gayparties, CSDs and CSD street party already “unbooked” 've seen, then there would be some at themselves take. Except Kaey, the yes now lives as a woman and Gloria, I've seen the ladies not particularly in public…

But it turned out again, that it is always difficult, to have as many guests as extroverted in a heap, the converse that is intrinsically- and independently. Since then needs it more than microphones are present and interfere with the presenters then really only the Schlagaustauchsch.. Although both Mr. moderators were pretty good.

The ladies were also agreed with the drinks – Too little and constantly all.
“Barbie You wanted to say something?”
“No, I wave only after alcohol”

In this sense,.

That was probably the last time in the old Schwuz, so now the soon disappears towards Neukölln and Mehringdamm turn back. shame really. Will they then take the Melitta Sundström picture with them from the dance floor??

Gaypride – You hate something about it

…course of the CSD is a political parade – and that it is not itself naturally long, how we can celebrate here just showed again this weekend abroad.


Good, in Berlin, the CSD is largely a big party, and therefore the policy gets behind the fun behind, but in other countries as it looks from different, Therefore, once a message from the weekend:

Right-wing extremists have attacked participants of the first major gay pride marches in the Czech Republic and Bulgaria's history on Saturday. The Czech news agency CTK reported by at least twenty casualties, after the round 500 Participants logged  «RegenbogenparadeÃ, » in Brno (Brno) were attacked with tear gas. Also tried right-wing radicals in Sofia, to disrupt the gay parade. The police took 60 Skinheads fest.

In Brno, before the start of the parade, three people were arrested, as extremists threw firecrackers on the gathering gays and lesbians. Yet on Wednesday, the authorities of the second largest Czech city had requests from right-wing groups such as the  «National ParteiÃ, » and  «National WiederauferstehungÃ, » refused to counter-events. Among the supporters of the parade were the Czech Minister for Human and Minority Rights, Dzamila Stehlikova, und Tennis legend Martina Navratilova. Since 2006 Czech homosexuals can register their relationship official. The detainees had tried in Sofia, to disrupt the event in the capital Sofia, shared the office with. A large police presence at the  «Bridge of VerliebtenÃ, » Palace of Culture on Parade separated several dozen participants from their opponents from nationalist groups. The security forces prevented, that the critics joined the parade through the city center. As a protest against demonstrators threw firecrackers.

Death threats in Bulgaria
The human rights organization Amnesty International had previously warned of riots. For the gay parade had- called and Lesbian Organization Gemini. Her boss, Aksinija Gentschewa, klagte kurz vor der Parade, they have received death threats. The Orthodox Christian Church and the head of the Bulgarian Muslims had rejected the event. The venue was, for reasons of safety and morality twice within 24 Transferred hours. Prime Minister Sergei Stanishev said, he was tolerant of people, in religiöser, social or other aspects are different, but the  «Ausrichtungenà this demonstration, Â" did not like him.

so much on the subject of political CSD. I have enormous respect for the people, who go there on the road and I'm not sure if I would have the courage. I would rather it be like in Germany. A country where politicians such as Renate Künast are, of course, to see me on the CSD is there but much more sympathetic.


So when I read such reports as above, I stand by my statement from last year:

anywhere as long as gays do not have fear, to come out or as long as a transvestite sitting around somewhere with fear at home at home and do not dare to come out of himself, because they are afraid, what the neighbors, think the family or work colleagues,

as long as there are still people, the spit out an insult or before a, or even kill ¤ are BLE,

as long as I get emails and see, that alone the public Prà ¤ à ¶ presence helps other people, get out of themselves and their anxiety to overcome à ¼,

long as it is still rewarded in other countries Countries homosexuality with the death penalty,

while in other countries Countries CSDs under bedenkenswertem police” protection” ¼ mà must take place,

as long as these countries are banned CSDs in turn other Countries,

as long as is and remains a political event of the CSD.

For me it is important, to be present,
Show the flag,
to show, that it gives us,
to show, that we are many,
to show, that we do not bite,
to show, that we are not perverse and
to show, that we have arrived in society.

This should be allowed to quietly celebrate joyful and celebrate – and just look good
Victim? No thanks!

Hugh I geprochen.

And to complete the policy-part I must here again show the most important political demand this CSD.

Margot Schlönzke

Margot Schlönzke & Kora Van Tastisch

…I'm diligent reader of the various Bullettins and newsletters, Short messages and relevant gazettes and so escapes me at least not in berlin too little, such as, for example, the fact, that Margot Schlönzke and Kora van Tastisch some time ago in the AHA sort of a best of 5 Wanted to give the best years of combined travesty.


In, Why not. I had been the only woman on her Schlönzke Song recital seen, Mrs van tastic but not seen on the travesty boards, so far as one could see times.

…Now my wife has invited Schlönzke so freely to her recital, such a sweet invitation did not come this time… Was she perhaps because the effect of the program or uncertain?? Well I'm there like a restaurant critic. Uninvited and unnoticed at the most critical.


So I came to the AHA, paid my contribution to this show, einen Club Mate Ice Tea, flipped in the blu and the Victory Column and waited for things, that there should come as. Finding a place was this time not really difficult, because at about 12-15 Besucherngab there is sufficient availability – However, not enough opportunities, to escape the two main actors on stage, because you should watch a little, if you spend an evening at the two. It could be, that one finds oneself at once before but not ON the stage and unintentionally become part of the show… Fortunately, the chance of that happening seems slightly larger, know if the two a. Unerkanne and uninvited seem to be there a little safer. My luck.


Now, I was luckily not to be taken into consideration dragged on stage and could thus pursue undisturbed the show from the perspective of a spectator – and film – which in turn was not unnoticed.

However, it was once again in this idea, how easy the differences between Kreuzberg and Mitte travesty / Friedrichshain travesty are Nix Madonna, Nix or any soul diva Kylie. The AHA is sung German and the songs were all old but already a bit longer than the specified 5 Years. Well that does not have to be bad. Just classic and so far it is just not in it, to move as coherent mouth but a show to tinker around it and the Masses 12-15 To captivate viewers. But they have really done well.

Even if I only one of the Best Of… Knew pieces I felt entertained. The one that I knew the way, was the following piece of Egon, that KoRa van tastic and that I was the best on the grand Gender X Documentation first saw – and now could actually watch just once as a live performance. Class rather.


At the end there was something, wass there are any good transvestite revue and for the Mary Morgan is probably the most famous. A number of will be washed off, the jewelry and disappears at the end of the wig is recognized even. So if you want to know times, as the person behind Margot Schlönzke really looks like, then the following number is for you. Just once looks in.


I was then detected incidentally still. There are simply too few people, the mitfilmen such an event and KoRa saw in me then but Zoe, the most “is without a fumble since, so that we do not recognize”. Marhot and wondered how because that would, they would have invited me but not at… ..As I said, now and then I come uninvited…. This does not of course, dass ich mich zur Fledermaus nicht über eine Einladung freuen würde 😉


Also, It was a fun evening and both deserved some viewers more… Also schaut mal hin, if the two do a show.

Margot Schlönzke sings in the AHA

Margot Schlönzke – Shards of a tear

Recently I've written, that a major benefit of this blog, and generally the one who is Rumtranserei, me to meet interesting people. I had, for example, even a very cute and pretty long evening with Margot Schlönzke, which one also had the title “Berlin Trans customer for non-Berliners” can title.

A nice side effect is the, that it happens from time to time, that some of these people do something good one. Thus ended about a week ago following mail in my mailbox Gayromeo:

Hello My Love,
as you have perhaps already noticed, I sing on 25., 26. and 27.04., So this weekend, my solo program “Shards of a tear” in the AHA.
I would like to invite you cordially to and write with your profile name on the guest list!
The program starts at 20 Clock, the inlet is already starting 19:30 Clock. I hope, we see ourselves!
Your Margot

Hmmm, that has a good vocal training, I have next to their knowledge of teas from the above-mentioned evening took. And it also makes sense, to show this on the stage of the AHA times… ( At least, with the singing – not with the tea)

So I asked for a guest list place – and got him. KoRa van tastic at the checkout looked at me (because of their size) something from the top down and decided well, that the type, of there before her was named “Zoe Delay” could match and I was let into the AHA.

It was quite good with guestlist places, Found full of Perpetual Indulgence and maybe even a few paying visitors have the way to the AHA two-tickets winners and sisters. Zumindes I only got a place right front of the stage.


Something is actually more dangerous, because it can always mean, that is involved in any way in the happenings on stage… I'm pretty well escaped. Up to a question, what would I photograph the whole time and if I my, that is well worth the, Margot has turned to other victims.

For this I have to say two things.
1) I do not photographed – I filmed. That's a big difference. Because in addition to the face comes as even vote on the memory card. This is a double risk. But can also be twice as good.
2) even if I had photographed – but as I said I do not have – I would definitely somebody – Photo editing goodness – also face some of the worst would have been able to get out. Also auch nicht-lohnendes könnte sich zu fotografieren lohnen 😉

But as I said, Schlönzke woman turned rather to the men and women Two tickets winners, which they told, what the colorfully dressed people with the Michael Jackson complexion so would do and exactly what the AHA is, what you did not do better there and what others on this stage – really could take place on the all- – behave like.



Nevertheless, four of the six were Taken up by the end of the show. It was worth it too, because Margot Schlönzke can really sing. (As far as I can tell with my rather limited understanding of music.)

Most of her pieces are based on the music of any song in music history, but each with a German text – sometimes even provided with a very funny text. At least in the first part of the show is not quite smooth. (Also indicated by a not entirely smooth pantsuit)

The texts were from Schwuz, the Aha, Queens, Shemales, Coexistence and frozen pizza, of trash and various other things in life.

Then it became quiet and solemn romantic (again indicated by a dark blue celebratory evening dress…) Quieter song, less wit but more lesson, what a good voice can be as.

One might call myself an ignoramus, but I liked the first part better. Nevertheless, the second part was pretty great, and generally it is worth, time to spend an evening in the AHA and listen Margot Schlönzke.
