Debut Performance

Samantha The Queen performed her debut performance last year in The George, one of the best known gay bars in Dublin. Her first performance was in front of friends but she soon grew in confidence and conquered the stage. She is no longer in her home country of Brazil, she is now an international performer in Dublin, the capital of Ireland.

Inspiration

Her inspiration comes from well-known celebrity divas such as Beyoncé, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and also the Brazilian star known as Queen Ivete Sangalo.

His story is no different from many other stories of a boy who discovers that he is gay. At age 12 he knew. After experiencing turbulence in family relationships and among school colleagues, he had his own acceptance at age 16. He comes from an active Catholic family, who do much more than just attend mass. He states that while at home he was actively involved in religion, reading, art and he sang in a choir group. He was always a very effeminate child but the open and clear talk that he had with his family, about being who he chose to be, only happened two years ago in 2015. Samantha The Queen represents joy, so if Andrei never came out as being who he really is, he would never have been happy; that happiness did not come from within.

Samantha is Andrei’s superlative. All that Andrei is, she’s 10 times more! he declared

Art of Drag

Andrei invests his money in women’s clothing and makeup. He says it takes an hour and a half to become Samantha; she loves a classic style with plenty of sparkles. When she is ready, Samantha The Queen guarantees a lively show on stage.
