Ireland’s Queen of Drag is Headed to Belfast
November 30, 2015 Laura Caldwell 0 Comments
Ireland’s one and only High Queen of Ireland, Panti Bliss is headed to Belfast this week in her ONLY Belfast tour date of 2015.
National treasure, accidental activist, figurehead of Ireland’s recently successful ‘Yes Equality’ campaign and performance legend PANTI BLISS hits Mandela Hall with her critically acclaimed stand-up show “HIGH HEELS IN LOW PLACES” on Friday 4th December in what will be her ONLY Belfast tour date of 2015 (having previously sold out her last Belfast show in 2014).
THISISPOPBABY and TABOO present Panti Bliss as she brings her stand-up show to Belfast’s Mandela Hall for a night of laughter, celeb gossip and more than one tin of hairspray.
Charting brushes with infamy, near misses with fame, and adventures in the seedy underbelly, the ‘High Queen of Ireland’ invites you in to her ultra-padded, hyper-real, stiletto-shaped world, as she swaps stories from the gutter and trades secrets of the stars.
Panti landed herself in the middle of a media storm christened ‘Pantigate’ that rocked Ireland in 2014. Soon after, she became a YouTube sensation when a speech she made about homophobia, described as ‘the most eloquent Irish speech’ in 200 years by Irish Times columnist Fintan O’Toole. The speech went viral with over 750,000 views on youtube, was broadcast around the world, debated in parliament and even remixed by the Pet Shop Boys – sparking a powerful conversation about equality.
