OH, and Pabllo Vittar and Trixie Mattel, too. And some drag queens.
That’s a lot of talent for one 3 day festival happening June 23, 24 and 25! But, it’s what we’ve come to expect from Queer Bar and its owners Joey Burgess and Murf Hall who also own/co-own a slew of other Capitol Hill businesses including The Cuff Complex, Elliott Bay Book Company, Big Little News, Oddfellows Cafe and the just recently opened cafe/lounge Gemini Room. Last year, they booked Kim Petras and Iggy Azalea who wowed sold out crowds at the street festival on 11th Avenue in front of Queer Bar over Seattle Pride Weekend 2022. And, the star power continues with Queer Pride Festival 2023.
I mean….it’s a great line-up with something for everyone. You got heart throb gay country crooner ORVILLE PECK. And, beloved dance music icon/artist/activist PEACHES. Not to mention, the truly beloved living legend that is CHARO, who has been entertaining audiences with her music, humor, and charm for over 50 years.
It really is bonkers. In a “cuchi cuchi” sort of way.
