King of Queens 2019

AIDS Care Ocean State proudly congratulates the contestants,Drag Mothers, judges and volunteers that made this year’s King of Queens such a huge success! From the amazing transformations to the performances to the energy of the crowd, the spectacular event on May 5th at the Colosseum in Providence, RI was an incredible success!

A premiere drag event for the past nine years, King of Queens brings together contestants from every spectrum—young and old, straight, gay, bisexual, lesbian, and members of the trans community. This year was no exception, with nine dedicated contestants learning the secrets of Drag and raising nearly $20,000 for AIDS Care Ocean State.

Special thanks to Aly Brock, who has produced this amazing event since its beginning and has raised more than $170,000 for AIDS Care Ocean State. On behalf of the board, staff and clients of AIDS Care Ocean State, she has our most heart-felt thanks!
