Bringing together 11 Proudly South African Drag Artists to pay Tribute to South Africa and the World who are on Lockdown during this COVID-19 Pandemic. #StayStrong is a message of Hope, Resilience, Kindness and Self Care and saying THANK YOU to the Heroes on the front-line, risking their lives and making sacrifices so we can stay home.

Coenie Louw from Gateway Health Institute approached Shenay O’Brien to lead the project after seeing something similar done in Holland. This Proudly South African project is very different to the one from Holland, as it is an entirely LGBTIQA project and involves only Drag Artists.

Shenay O’Brien set off to gather some of SA’s beloved and fabulous Queens, and chose a proudly South African Anthem that everyone can relate to.

TOGETHER AS ONE, we will fight this global pandemic and Unite a World in Union!
Thank YOU to everyone staying at home for stopping the spread.
Stay Home. Stay Safe!

Please share this video and join in the #StayStrong movement and help us by spreading the positive, inspiring and uplifting message.

Thank you to everyone involved in this project:
