London Live commissions ‘Drag Queens Of London’
Bold, Brash & Beautiful – London’s Drag Queens laid bare
London Live, the new 24/7 entertainment channel for London, has commissioned The Connected Set to make a new series called ‘Drag Queens of London’. This new 8 part observational documentary series is due to be broadcast in April 2014.
‘Drag Queens Of London’ follows the lives of a selection of performers from the biggest and broadest drag scene in the world. ‘Drag Queens of London’ has exclusive access to some of the scene’s most well known and successful artists including Dusty O, Jodie Harsh, Baga Chipz, Lady Lloyd and Rosie Beaver, amongst others.
Becky Maynard, series producer at The Connected Set said, “There’ll be plenty of the expected glitzy and glamorous performances but we’ll also learn more about the stories behind the performer as the war paint comes off. These courageous and colourful characters have a lot on their plate and we’ll see them triumph against the odds to forge careers, find love and make their lives as both drag queens and real men in the capital. We can’t wait to tell all the stories in ‘Drag Queens of London’ this April”.
Dusty O, who appears on the show said: “Drag doesn’t discriminate. Queens come in all shapes, sizes, hues and ages and are endowed with some extraordinary talents. It’s great to be part of a programme that celebrates and showcases the diversity and dynamism of London’s drag scene. It’s going to be an eye-opening and electrifying journey for viewers and drag queens alike”.
