Besi Besemar September 4, 2014

The wicked Queen of the drag circuit, Lola Lasagne has been confirmed as the next willing ‘roastee’ at London’s only comedy Drag Roast, organised by QX magazine and the Royal Vauxhall Tavern (RVT) to raise funds for Terrence Higgins Trust (THT).

The Drag Roast will take place at the RVT on Thursday, September 25. At the event, Lola will be asked to grit her teeth and purse her lips as fellow queens Rose Garden, Mrs Moore and Miss Jason line up to share tall tales and cherished memories of their friend and colleague, before being given the chance to get her claws on the mic and turn the tables on the panel.

Once again, the event will be hosted by Myra Dubois, ‘Rotherham’s least celebrated daughter’, while all funds raised through ticket sales will be used by THT to support people living with and at risk of HIV.

Lola said: “In my 25th anniversary year, I can’t think of a finer place to bring the celebrations to a close than the venue where it began, back on 7th June 1989: the RVT. And the fact that we’re raising money for the Terrence Higgins Trust and supporting their excellent work will make the night an extra special one. As for the roasting, all I can say is bring it on ladies! I’m ready for you and looking forward to dishing it right back at ya.”

Kiera Ridge, Community Fundraising Manager at THT, added: “They say three’s the magic number, and we’re expecting our third Drag Roast to be the best yet. We’re so grateful to QX and the RVT for continuing to support our cause so amazingly, and to Lola, Myra and the roasters for donating their time. It’s one of the funniest nights in London, and – with every penny raised supporting people living with and at risk of HIV – we can’t think of a better cause.”

The Drag Roast will take place on Thursday, September 25 at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern (372 Kennington Lane, London SE11 5HY). Doors open at 7.00 p.m., and the performance starts at 8.30 p.m.

Tickets cost £10 each in advance or £12 on the door, all of which will be donated to the Terrence Higgins Trust.
