Tiffany’s Show, one of the worlds TOP drag extravaganzas comes to Pride Toronto
I love love love a good drag extravaganza. Montreal does it well, Vegas does it well, and Thailand for sure does it well. So, when I heard about Tiffany’s Show, one of the world’s most renowned drag show, is coming to perform at the booth of Tourism Authority of Thailand in the street fair at Pride Toronto, I was excited to talk to them.
Is this Tiffany’s Show first time in Toronto?
Yes, this is our first time in Toronto and we, at Tiffany’s Show Pattaya, are very proud and excited to be here for one of the largest Pride celebrations in the world!
Tell us more about your show, when did it start, and perhaps a little about its history?
Tiffany’s Show Pattaya is the first authentic transvestite cabaret show of South-East Asia; and was established in 1974 by Mr. Vichai Lertritruengsin and Mr. Sutham Phanthusak. With more than 43 years of experience, the family-oriented show was voted among the TOP 10 WORLD’S BEST SHOWS and has received the ‘PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARDS VOTED BY CHINESE TOURISTS’, ‘PRIME MINISTER’S CREATIVE AWARD’ and ‘THAILAND TOURISM AWARDS’. Tiffany’s Show Pattaya has organised the most well-known ‘Miss Tiffany’s Universe’ since 1998 and ‘Miss International Queen’ since 2004 as the biggest transvestite events in the world with aims to raise human rights and equality for all. Tiffany’s Show Pattaya enjoys world-wide recognition as a ‘must-see’, and recommended for visitors of any age coming to Pattaya. Everyone will be amazed by the glamour and talent of our beautiful performers.
What makes Tiffany’s Show different, or unique, from other drag shows?
We are “the original” that can only be seen at Tiffany’s Show Pattaya. Tiffany’s Show Pattaya is all about beauty, skills, talents, creativity, originality, authenticity, and quality with a huge production. Our organization never stopped OPENING DOORS to new opportunities. We value differences and creativity; hence, our ongoing inspirations have allowed us to create unique and spectacular shows one after another. We have an international team of management who are very dedicated and experience in the show business. Winners of Miss Tiffany’s Universe (Thailand’s largest & most popular transgender beauty pageant) and Miss International Queen (the World’s largest & most prestigious transgender beauty pageant) work with us as full-time performers. Every night, international audience is able to witness a multimillion-dollar production through the very talented and beautiful showgirls, classy and elegant costumes, and enormous scenery at Tiffany’s Show Pattaya. We keep people coming back to the show by updating the show programme at least twice a year. We invest in our people in order to exceed customers satisfaction. With multiple awards guaranteed, we strive to be the best. Hence that makes Tiffany’s Show Pattaya totally different and unique from other shows.
Our audience is always interested in knowing about how LGBTQ life Is in other countries around the world. How is gay life in Thailand?
The Opportunities has given to many of the Transgender Community. The Awareness of the problems that Transgender people face and the public awareness of equality and dignity both in Thailand and around the world is gradually being recognized over 20 years as a very important Human Rights Issue by the support of alliance and partnerships with many big corporations with great success. However generally Thai people respect each other and accept things that do not harm others. People can be what they want to be and do what they want to do as long as they don’t hurt other people. Tiffany’s Show Pattaya works towards World Equality with both the public and private sectors in order to promote human rights, equality, and acceptance. This openness draws millions of visitors to Thailand which is also very good for the Thai economy. Love is love and we value that regardless of their colours and gender at birth. So, we would say transgender life in Thailand is great.
Do you plan on doing some sightseeing while you are visiting our city?
Yes of course. We wish to visit the city of Toronto and the suburb areas. If time permits, we want to visit Quebec for our cultural experience. Who knows on the next trip, we might be able to visit Yellowknife! or they might even invite Tiffany’s Show Pattaya to perform there!
