A NEW KWEEN

IS CROWNED IN ASTORIA

his eye open for a venue

for over a year, until one

day he noticed that the

space formerly occupied

by Viva Viva had become

available. The venue is

meaningful trinkets

along the bar and even a

portrait of Alvarado’s dog,

dressed as royalty.

There’s been a new

Kween in town, ever since

the gay bar and lounge

on 30th Avenue in Astoria

had its grand opening on

June 10. It’s embellished

with interesting artwork,

crowns everywhere and

even a pink throne that

has already become a

media.

But the most important

thing, according to

owner Pedro Alvarado,

is creating a positive

environment where

everyone feels celebrated,

and that’s what inspired

the name Kween.

“When you motivate or

recognize something

about someone, if

someone tells you they

got a new job, it’s like,

‘Yasss, kween!’ It’s very

motivating to people,

and I want to put that in

everybody’s life, like, ‘Yes,

you can do it. Yes, you

can make the American

dream–pursue it and make

it happen’,” Alvarado said.

Opening his own bar was

always Alvarado’s dream.

Originally hailing from

Venezuela, he moved

to Astoria and built up

tons of experience by

working in hospitality for

over 20 years in venues

around the city, including

Astoria’s two other gay

bars, Icon and Albatross.

He spent the time learning

every aspect of the

industry, from bartender to

manager, and continually

set money aside for his

dream bar. Alvarado kept

“It’s been designed in my

mind for 10 years now,”

Alvarado said. “My goal

was to make it as nice

as possible and at the

same time, for artists to

come and do whatever

performances they want.

If they want to do their

poetry, drag king, drag

queen, whatever you

want to do and express

yourself, this is the space

for it.”

Kween had its soft

opening on May 16 and

Alvarado said there was

an outpour of support.

They now offer Drag

Brunch on Saturdays and

Sundays–two seatings,

with shows at 1PM and

3:30PM, with a company

of different drag artists

every weekend. “We are

welcoming to all who want

to come and show their

talent and the chance

to be part of the Kween

family,” Alvarado beamed.

CELEBRITY CORRESPONDENT

ne of the most vibrant musical

parodies to hit the off-Broadway

stage, Titanique is entertaining

fans of Celine Dion and Titanic

alike at Asylum NYC. The cast

members are all hilarious farceurs

with practically super-human

voices.

Titanique is a wildly clever

spoof of the movie Titanic, deftly

working the hit songs of Celine

Dion into the plot. Get Out was

able to interview the cast/creators,

including writers Marla Mindelle,

who plays Celine, and Constantine

Rousouli who portrays Jack…
