Sander den Baas’ alter ego Lady Galore was born at Gay Pride 2009 in Amsterdam – the rest is history. She started out making her own outfits, perfecting her make-up and making appearances at various parties. She also set up drag events like Lady Galore’s drag night (which she did every week for 4 years), Fabulous Cocktail Wednesday, the Gay High tea, and the annual Drag Queens United. This year she has her own Drag Queen stage at Milkshake festival and she is performing all over Europe. She has strutted her stuff in Paris, Berlin, Madrid, Stockholm, Geneva, Sitges, Gran Canaria, Barcelona, Brussels, etc. She even went to Japan to be in a photoshoot on the streets of Tokyo. The sky is the limit. Galore appeared in 2 films and 4 documentaries. And in 2011 she co-hosted GayDay@Efteling.
“In a society that sometimes can be judgmental, hateful, afraid of the unknown we have to stand strong and celebrate who we are or want to be. Let’s try to stay strong as a community and enjoy every second of it!”
