Dutch Drag Diva Brings The House Down With Anti-Putin Protest Song

Notoriously anti-gay Russian President Vladimir Putin is in Amsterdam this week to kickstart the Russia-Netherlands Bilateral Year, and he’s already off to a rough start by not showing up to a grand protest held in his honor. The nerve!

The protest, populated by thousands of gay locals and their drag pals, converged in a town square yesterday afternoon to welcome the staunch Conservative with rainbow boas, bare breasts, and plenty of marijuana. Circuit queens could be heard screaming “werrrrk” for miles in every direction. Putin wasn’t impressed.

Part of the great protest included an original song by drag queen Dolly Bellefleur, who’s equally unimpressed by Putin’s oppressive nature. Check out some of the lyrics below—it’s pretty much the most detailed translation of “sashay away” we’ve ever heard.

There lives an evil man in Russia nowadays?
He supports a law against lesbians and gays
?Most people look at him with terror and with fear
?Cause he pulls the strings like a wicked puppeteer
?It’s distressing how he is suppressing homosexuality
?In the name of love we are protesting: Set our sisters free.?
Stop stop stop Putin – Drop your law at the Kremlin – Love is no crime it’s not a disease
?Stop stop stop Putin – Your plans are so poisoning – For all the Russian LGBTs.

      Bonus points on writing an original song, but, for fuck’s sake, I wanted to cram that whistle down the throat of the queen who kept blowing along with the song. VERY annoying. Listen to the song again and tell me that’s not all you hear.
