What better way is there to celebrate the diversity, love and inclusion of Malta Pride Week than with a night filled with entertainment, laughter and drag racing?
You Are Included is a Maltese Pride concert that will be held on 18th September. It is an event that celebrates the core values of the LGBTIQ+ community: “diversity and inclusion”.
Malta Pride released the event on Facebook and revealed that a Drag Competition will be taking place as part of the highly anticipated affair – featuring Malta’s very own Chucky Bartolo fresh from Scotland.
The competition will see the judgement of international and local personalities such as fashionista Carina Camilleri and Welsh drag queen Dr Bev Ballcrusher, who will decide who deserves to wear the Drag Artist crown of this year.
The organisers announced that the host of the night will be none other than “Malta’s stand-up queen elven Maiden” Chucky who will be travelling all the way from Scotland to make the lucky audience “gag, gasp and giggle”. He’ll be joined by 8.97 Bay’s Daniel and Ylenia.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the concert has been limited to a seated capacity of 500 people.
And in honour of the overarching inclusion theme, the organisation has set up a live-streaming service provider to equip those who will be joining in on the fun from home.
It will be shown directly onto spectators’ devices via their Malta Pride Facebook page.
The event also called for eager watchers to gather safely in entertainment venues, like pubs, bars and restaurants to follow the show in the company of others.
So if you’re a venue owner who’s interested in sharing this magical night, you can contact Allied Rainbow Communities to be added to their list of venues that will be screening the event.
Sign language interpreters will also be available for the hosts and speeches that will be taking place throughout the concert.
“Pride should always be an accessible space.”
Grab yourself some tickets to watch the talented guests that You Are Included will be hosting such as contemporary dancer Chakib Zidi, XFactor Malta singer Miriana Conte and the “sin-sational siren” of the Mediterranean and Burlesque Mama Undine LaVerve and her troupe of the BAM – Burlesque Academy of Malta, to name a few.
