Benjamin Butch

Benjamin Butch enjoys challenging the construction of masculinity and femininity by blurring the lines between gender binaries. Benjamin creates thought provoking and comical acts with the use of physical comedy and lipsync. Plus he is quite sexy.

They’re an NADC Finalist, KOC Resident, Queerlesque protege, a favourite in London’s finest Queer venues, and Producer of the new smut night WOOF. An artist, an activist, and straight up sexy! WOOF. 

Rubyyy Jones

Rubyyy Jones is an artist, theatre maker and a glittering LGBTQIA cabaret icon. An innovator of Queerlesque and neo cabaret, Rubyyy can regularly be found on stages all over the world, bringing her signature blend of evocation, electricity and emotion. Rubyyy Jones must be believed to be seen!

Freida Slaves

Debuting at The Glory's very own Lipsync1000 last year, Freida Slaves has already graced the cover the cover of magazines, featured in Attitude, The Guardian, and even Vogue Italia. They have been documented various times with Vice and i-D magazine. Freida is a protagonist in Blonde's lgbtq+ anthem, 'Me Myself and I', music video. And also co-presented the Gay Times Awards with RPDR winner Jinkx Monsoon.

Freida is a force to be reckoned with; their passionate and energetic lipsyncs have been showcased at Glastonbury, MTV EMAs, and The Royal National Theatre, and Charli XCX's 2018 Pop2 tour. Freida recently headlined Stockholms first drag festival at Europride 2018, Stockwig, and has also performed at the legendary drag festival Bushwig, in New York, billed with the world's top queens. 

Her name is rebellious, powerful and undeniable, in predominately white queer spaces, she always stands tall and is unapologetically black with it.

Gals Aloud

They Can't Speak French, but they are escaping their Biology to become GALS ALOUD, the ultimate Drag tribute to the best girl band of this millennium, Girls Aloud.

After a sell out season on the Southbank this summer, the Gals are back with a full show packed with the hits of Girls Aloud, solo singles, hilarious TV appearances, costumes, and a few surprises along the way.

So if you're looking for Something Kinda Ooooh, this is The Show for you. See Nadine, Cheryl, Nicola, Kimberley and Sarah as you've never seen them before..and get ready for the return of Javine. This could be the start of Something New!
