What’s Love Got To Do With It?

  • Dates 28 - 29 June

Nefertiti LaNegra may be Queen of the Nile, and the thicc Dutchess of the Thigh Gap, but she didn’t always start out that way. She was born in a small town in the middle of nowhere and by golly – it has taken a lot to get her here: to 2019, to the big city. There have been ups – and an occasional down – so let her take you on a ride as she waxes poetic about growing up a queen amongst those who did not see her glory. Love (letters), sex, race, gender, (popular) song, and dance all collide in this poetic spectacle. When thinking about drag everyone expects a Judy Garland but no one expects a Serena Williams – and that’s where Nefertiti fills the gap.
