That we can celebrate a Queer Talent Show and give visibility to unknown artists, dissidents and quality, representatives of the LGTBIQ + collective, is already, by itself, a success. But if on top of that the audience is packed with applause, shouts of emotion, sings with the artistes, and completely delivered, it is incredible. More than 150 people packed the Jardins del Retiro de Sitges.
Singer-songwriters, drag queen, burlesque, musical and dance groups… The Queer Talent Show had everything and high quality.
The master of ceremonies, La Pelos, was spectacular in her role as host of the event. Communicative, fun, managing time well.
The exceptional jury, led by Jordi Milan (director of the theater group La Cubana), Nacho Ruiz (organizer of the Drag Queen Gala), television Pablo Wessling (writer and one of the people in charge of casting programs like OT, Tu cara me suena, etc.) and the singer-songwriter Lydia Ruiz, had it frankly difficult to choose the three winners. The public also voted online and their vote counted as that of a fifth member of the jury.
The awards were given by the councilors of Tourism and Culture, Luis Miguel García Alcaraz and Xavier Salmerón Carbonell respectively, as well as the president of the association Colors Sitges Link, Pedro Martín and the culture coordinator, Prado G. Velázquez.
It was two hours of disparate talent, music, queer entertainment, wonderful and diverse artists who live through art and who we wanted to support and give visibility to in this first edition of the Queer Talent Show.
The associations have collaborated to make the entire Cultural Festival possible SETC Sitges English Theater Company, AJC Associació de Joves de Cubelles, Jungle Fest and the company Sweet-Life. Without their commitment and selfless help it would not have been possible.
