Haus of Kova Drag Shows

Since 2018 the Haus of Kova has been producing high-end Drag Shows in Prague. If you have never attended a Drag Show before, you should do so immediately. Drag Shows are welcoming to all guests, regardless of gender preference. 

 

A drag show is a form of entertainment performed by drag artists impersonating men or women. Typically, a drag show involves performers singing or lip-synching to songs while performing a pre-planned pantomime or dancing. There might also be some comedy, skits, and audience interaction.

Drag performance is a powerful art form that continues to evolve. It became increasingly accepted over the years thanks to the activism of those in the LGBTQ community—to the point that it is now celebrated in the mainstream media, with reality shows like the primetime Emmy-award winning competition show Rupaul's Drag Race.

  1. Tip your drag queens. Drag performers are freelance artists and often rely on tips to financially get by. Before arriving at the show, be sure to have some dollar bills handy. If you don't have any single bills, kindly ask your bartender to make change for you. 

  2. Consent is key. Drag entertainers are people. Never behave in a way that makes the performers feel uncomfortable or unsafe. Treat drag queens with respect, and always ask for consent before touching them or taking a picture. 

  3. Be supportive of the queens. Even if you aren't a fan of a drag queen's set, don't boo them. Drag performers work meticulously preparing their looks and routines, and booing anyone brings the mood down. 

  4. Support your local drag queens. TV shows like RuPaul's Drag Race and The Boulet Brothers' Dragula have launched the careers of many successful drag queens, like Bianca Del Rio, Bob the Drag Queen, and Sasha Velour. However, there are lots of performers who aren't former contestants that need support. Consider attending local shows to support your hometown queens. 

  5. Have fun. Drag was never meant to be taken seriously. Drag queens want audience members to have as much fun as they are.
