We were delighted to revive our sold-out workshop at Camden People's Theatre as part of their Come As You Are festival of trans, non-binary and genderqueer theatre.
This second installation further explored sex & gender, and they way they intersect, with special performances from some of our hottest drag kings.
We are honoured to have been invited to be part of Oriana Fox's "The O Show - Female Masculinity". The O Show is a web-TV talk show hosted by artist Oriana Fox featuring creative practitioners sharing their work, life stories and approaches to challenging norms. There'll be dancing from the Pecs boys and our Co-Director and Drag superstar Temi Wilkey will be on a panel discussing female masculinity and performance.
Tickets are FREE! Check it out here.
This sold out workshop show was part of Hotbed: a festival of sex at Camden Peoples Theatre. Pecs: Let’s Talk About Sex was an emboldening workshop performance where we invited the audience to dig deep into their sexual histories, and gain a deeper understanding of how gender affects their sex lives and the experiences of their sexual partners, through forum discussion, anonymous, confessional letter-writing and a final collective performance of one another’s experiences.
The first outing of our smash hit 80s cabaret took place at celebrated queer cabaret venue, The Glory, in Dalston.
Packed with Power Suits, Prince Tribute Acts and New Romantic Pretty Boys: this show stuck it to the man and didn't hold back.
The show is transferring to the Soho Theatre, 4 - 9th Dec 2017.
This Valentines night, we were lucky enough to headline the Drag King Bonanza at amazing queer variety night Bar Wotever - the world's longest running queer weekly event.
A packed house and a dose of true romance made this an unforgettable comeback night for Pecs after a year of working out and grooming our moustaches.
You can find more information about Bar Wotever here.
We were invited to perform at Late at Tate and were greeted that night by hordes of people queuing, down the length of the exhibition rooms, to get into our studio space.
Our den of delights was chock full of activities for our lucky visitors to get involved in, as well as exclusive acts from the Pecs boys in our intimate space.
We also performed monologues by Tracey Emin's My Bed and even gave an impromptu dance performance in the main space at the end of the night!

Ugly Duck is a multi-disciplinary organisation that hosts arts events at their venue on 47/49 Tanner Street.
We took over the Factory at Ugly Duck for two nights in July! Inspired by the backdrop of an old 19th Century warehouse, the Drag Kings of Pecs brought you Tipping the Top Hat, an homage to Victorian Music Hall and the tail-coated Toms of Tipping the Velvet.
Pecs: Tipping the Top Hat was performed as part of Ugly Duck's creative season, see www.uglyduck.org.uk for more info.
Hosted by the Lord of the Hedonist, Pecs performed their very own and very first Pride show, right in the heart of Soho. We were the only Drag King show at London Pride in 2015 and what a riot we had!
As an events and entertainment group, Lords of the Hedonist seek to keep alternative venues and spaces alive, offering diverse entertainment for all, representing the 'other' London.
Our next show took place at awesome queer variety night Bar Wotever at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern, on Tuesday 27th January, 2015. We'd been dying to perform there for a while, and put together an hour of new material to test out on the Wotever World audience.
We had a blast, and will most certainly be doing more Wotever World events soon: watch this space!
We did a one-off charity event at The Cambridge Union's Feminism Forum, on Wednesday 30th April, 2014. This was a selection of favourite acts from our previous two shows, to raise money for the Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre.

Our second show took place at the Abbey Tavern, Kentish Town, for 3 sell-out nights, Tuesday 1st - Thursday 3rd April, 2014.
Cafe des Hommes had a more mellow, Parisian vibe, with erotica readings, mime and stand-up, as well as our usual array of dances, sketches and songs.
