Drag-Súgur: Motherland!
21:00 – Gaukurinn – 2,500 ISK
Donald Trump doesn’t have to be the only one who gets to meet a Queen this week. Head to Gaukurinn on Friday to see the astonishingly fabulous Gógó Starr host a special Icelandic-themed edition of Drag-Súgur, Reykjavík’s premier drag show. Last year Gógó led the official Independence Day parade as ‘Fjallkonan,’ Iceland’s national mother figure. If previous form is anything to go by, then this year’s interpretation will only be more extravagant. Expect glamour, glitter and a glut of civic pride.
