The Queens of the neighborhood

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.


(2010) – Valery and I on a Pink inc.

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.

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…

Part 8 – is still

Olivia Jones – a drag queen with attitude

As part of the Pro7 “Queen Of Drags” course jump the other station a little on the horse. He knows z.B. and the NDR with a report on Olivia Jones, the actual Queen Of Drags in Germany.

A beautiful – not so small – Documentary about Olivia with all their greatest hits. Your great Extra3 report on the NPD congress, their Application for Mayor The Hamburg election, the Dschunglecamp, CSD appearances, Their first appearances in the Schmidt Theater and and and.

And honestly, who wins ever this season of Queen Of Drags. The status of a Olivia Jones still is quite long way. And I hope, that the winner, at least once political will and an example to Olivia functions not only as pretty painted face.

Ehrenburger Olivia Jones

That has Olivia Jones probably can not imagine in the wildest dreams, she then left her hometown Jump, to pull in the big wide world. Ultimately, she was staggered to Hamburg and it was Drag Queen Of The World, Most citizens Erkan Dida Ting, Vice Schungelköniging and especially Queen St. Pauli.

Now the silly season of the urban excitation committee has grown from the idea of ​​jump, Olivia to make her an honorary citizen.

First she probably laughed about it, but now turned into an open letter to the Springer and the World, which I find quite cool.

In brief it is pleased with the idea, and is not disappointed, if there were nothing. But she also talks about Russia, America and France and successes in tolerance, which have already been achieved. Just the idea, someone like they had to make an honorary citizen ago 10 Have been unthinkable years. And in the end they showed, onto, that tolerance must be re-defined and defended again and again. I find a very good letter.

Love Springer,

to me are the ghosts and that is a good thing. I always wanted to polarize and be a litmus test for tolerance. Even at the risk of, maybe sometimes shoot out over the target.

Of course I can not ask, that everyone understands, funny that in my package actually lies a serious message. But some seem to have realized it yet. I'm happy about. And I hope, that through my work and my otherness, in the end, more people-, 'm as upset and courage, living the life, to which one is attracted to. This is, what it is about me and what this is about - or at least should go. Not about me as a person, but the things, for people like me are representative - in troubled times like these:

But no matter, as emanating, I'm sure, dass Olivia irgendwann einen Stern auf der Reeperbahn neben dem von Udo Lindenberg bekommt 🙂
