Drag Queen Olympics

Pink Point / Homomonument Foundation / Roze Wester Festival / Drag Queen Olympics

As a tight group of friends GALA volunteers started dragging up for special occasions in the city.

For a while Hartjesdag in August in the Red Light District was favorite but then the city of Amsterdam reintroduced Queen’s Day Eve in 2004…

GALA and the seriously sporty drag queen Jennifer Hopelezz developed the Drag Queen Olympics especially for this occasion and this location. Very quickly it became the largest sporting event for drag queens and kings worldwide.

The Games draw thousands of spectators who cheer on  more than 25 international competitors as they battle it out for Olympic Gold in categories such as the Handbag Toss and Stiletto Sprint.
