On Saturday, the 30th of May The Death of Glitter will host their Birthday Ball live stream, celebrating three years of radical self-expression and outrageous ‘otherness’.
For the Mother City-hailing queerlective, being able to flaunt their fabulosity freely has always been priority #1, encouraging a non-judgemental queer culture and leading, in 10-inch stilettos, by fearless example.
The line-up includes local faves like Angel-Ho, NoDiggity, DRAGMOTHER, and Queezy, with Russian feminist punk rockers PussyRiot headlining the event. Feeble minds and gentle souls, be warned.
Last week drag queen superstar Glitteris kicked off the birthday anticipation with a string of interviews showcasing the creatives behind DOG. This week, make-up wizard Gareth Coleman shares a step-by-step makeup tutorial (read: challenge) — themed: 60s cabaret — for those who need some professional Birthday Ball inspiration and it’s simple enough: watch the tutorial, create your look, snap a cover girl selfie, and share it to your Instagram stories tagging @thedeathofglitter.
Broadcast across Facebook, the live stream is free, with artist donations encouraged via BUSQR.
Slaying is a full-time job and the kweens behind the Death of Glitter have been working overtime to give their Birthday Ball the attention it deserves.
