2017's King of Queen - May 7, 2017 at the Colosseum in Downtown Providence! Join us and cheer on members of our community who are transformed into beautifully stunning DRAG QUEENS for ONE night only by their amazing drag queen mothers. Who will be crowned 2017 King of Queens for Judges Choice and Fan Favorite? Join us and find out and support ACOS!

Each contestant has been matched with a Drag Mother to guide them in their look, character, performance and name. Our contestants will spend the upcoming weeks waxing, shaving, plucking, primping, learning to walk in heels and finding the perfect outfit and song to lip-sync while their Drag Mothers share their time, expertise and a whole ton of makeup. But, only ONE will be named the 2017 King of Queens!

Join us on May 7th at The Colosseum (180 Pine St. in downtown Providence.) Doors open at 6pm, show starts at 7pm. Tickets sold at door for $20. King of Queens 2017 is produced and presented by Alysha Brock and its proceeds are donated to AIDS Care Ocean State to support HIV/AIDS programs and services in Rhode Island.

Remember to bring your tip money! The Fan Favorite is chosen based on tips and donations the contestant receives. Be sure to check out your favorite contestants online because many of them have already started collecting donations through gofundme.com!
