Queereeoké is a project born out of love for a good show, singing, and bonding over a night full of self-expression. The drag artists on stage are using the format of karaoke to redefine a fabulous party night with self-empowerment by blurring the lines of audience and artist, but also to provide a space where expressive queerness is central and real – and not a marketing gag. Singing songs the way you want, queering them, appropriating mainstream culture, raising your voice, becoming audible and visible – those moments are vital and revolutionary for many. It is a practice for the life outside the safe venue.
