Justin Teliqure: The King of Queens
BY Justin Teliqure | 15-Feb-2017
Justin Teliqure. He’s irresistible and confusing, and he’s here to take you on an adventure that’s out of this world.
Welcome to the world of Justin Teliqure, Melbourne’s hottest drag king. He has wowed audiences with his hip hop sex appeal and cheeky charm, gaining popularity at several of Melbourne’s premier LGBTIQ clubs and night spots. He is now bringing his special class of entertainment to The Butterfly Club.
Join us on the fourth Saturday of each month from Jan-April 2017, for four unique nights of storytelling and song, an ambrosial blending of drag, cabaret and music theatre.
After a successful first show, Meet the King, this second instalment is a continuation of Justin’s story with a special twist: it’s all an alien dream with an X Files flavour, starring drag luminaries Atlanta Dusk, Bambi and Pablo McFagface, plus actor Katharine Innes. You do not need to have seen the first show to join in the adventure, but this drag cabaret is guaranteed to have you coming back for the third and fourth episodes.
A finalist in the GH’s DragNet 2016 competition and winner of Canberra’s So You Think You Can Drag 2016, Justin has taken the drag scene by storm, often joined by his back up dancers (affectionately dubbed The Lickettes). Kristina Benton, Justin’s director and producer, says “it’s a fun, sexy show about a very hot drag king and his diversely talented friends. Each show is different, each show stands alone, but together they all tell a story of acceptance and love.”
Come and be delightfully confused in your pants and enchanted in your eyes and ears by Justin Teliqure, The King of Queens.
