UK drag ambassador champions Lincoln Pride fundraiser

Glamorous UK Drag Ambassador The Vivienne is preparing for a special Lincoln performance to raise money for this year’s Lincoln Pride festival.

Presented by Divergence, The Vivienne, who describes herself as ‘Liverpool’s sassiest drag queen’, will perform at Lincoln LGBTQI (lesbian, gat, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex) nightclub The Scene on Friday, August 14.

Vivienne has held the title of RuPaul’s first ever UK Drag Ambassador since May 28 2015 and was crowned after fighting off fierce competition from some of the UK’s most talented drag queens. Watch her entry for RuPaul’s UK Drag Ambassador:

Tickets to her performance are just £5.00, with all proceedings going to Lincoln Pride.

The show, also featuring resident queens, kicks off at 8pm and hopes to raise funds for Lincoln Pride, which will be held on City Square on Sunday, September 27.

With 5,000 people attending the city’s Pride celebrations last year, the Scene and Pride Committee are expecting an even bigger crowd in September.

Tom Mullins, Owner of the Scene said: “It’s an honour to welcome such a big name in UK drag to the Scene. We can’t wait to watch her performance and know that anyone that comes will be in for a treat!

“Raising money for this year’s Lincoln Pride is so important not only for LGBTQI members but for the city as a whole.

“It’s a celebration of equality and a chance to look back at how far things have come, not forgetting a good excuse to drink and have a good time! We want to make 2015 the very best it can be!”
