2015 KING OF QUEENS RECAP
May 18, 2015

Twelve local celebrities performed at the 5th Annual King of Queens on May 17th, 2015 at the Colosseum nightclub in Providence. Each contestant was given a Drag Mother to mentor her, help her choose her look, song, name and performance style. Our contestants performed for a crowd of 500 and turned out the biggest and boldest King of Queens in history. This was a truly record breaking night, King of Queens raised $27,000 for AIDS Care Ocean State’s programs and services! 

Words cannot express how humbled and moved we all are at AIDS Care Ocean State over the tremendous turnout at King of Queens. Congratulations to the 2015 King of Queens winners (THE FIRST TIE IN KOQ HISTORY), The Dark Lady & Alleycat's Rande Diantuono , aka, Pat Choolie & George Marley, aka, Puppy Chow! And a big thank your FAN FAVORITE, who individually raised more money than any past KOQ Contestant, Donny Mckendall, aka Livi Ryan.  Thank you to all of our performers who put their hearts into this fundraiser: Anibal Mello, Marc Gauthier, Christopher Wilson, Bill Berggren, Melanie Silva, Bob Ricci, Joshua DePalma and Daniel White. Thank you to ALL OF OUR Drag Mothers, who without there would be no KOQ,  who donated their time and expertise to make our newest Queens absolutely fabulous: Jealousy Jonz, LaDiva Jonz, Khloe Glamour, Gingah Rale, Victoria Starr, BB Hayes, Gia Devaroux, Haley Star, Genesis, Complete Destruction, Jennie Talia & Jacqueline DiMera.
