“Celebrating Pride Month with House of Pink Volume 1 is an Ode to the LGBTI Plus Community, we as a community are going through the most inhumane time and House of Pink Volume 1 is a stance we are taking to show that we are alive and kicking as a community, we are who we are and have the right to express our lives however we please without anyone’s permission to exist, said Lebogang Toko.
Drag is known to break down gender norms and can thus be seen as ‘gender bending’. The art of drag allows one to transform oneself into absolutely anything. It is over the top, unapologetic and commands attention. Drag is BOLD!
The artistry of drag is the ultimate colourful form of self-expression. House of Pink Volume 1 celebrates the art form in all its majestic glory with fun and laughter.
House of Pink Volume 1 will leave audiences breathlessly gushing over every diva on stage! Join us for an experience of a lifetime for as little as R150 per ticket!
Brace yourselves for a night of fun, music and great entertainment.
See you at the Market.
