This gang of gender benders has consisted of kings, queenz, femmes, and everything in between. They were born in Milwaukee, but in the last 10 years have been all over the U.S. and even had a tour to Canada. The Miltown Kings are committed to providing a platform for quality interactive performance by creating a safe space for both performers and audiences which empowers self-expression and encourages the challenging of social and gender norms, thus fostering the diversity of an all-inclusive and ever evolving community. One of their show can be, and usually is, a million different things. The acts range from sexy to funny to thought provoking. Audience members are witness to political statements, gender fluidity, burlesque, and challenges to societal norms. Often a fan will be delighted to find a King on their lap. When the Kings perform they give physical form to the music. Being on the stage allows the performers to explore any person they ever wanted to be; the bad ass, the hopeless romantic, the goof ball, the dirty old man. The possibilities are endless and always drag-matic.
