I began this project in February 2020. I wanted to create a portfolio of images reflecting the characters and Drag Queens behind Rubyz Cabaret Bar in Bournemouth, UK.
Unfortunately because of Covid-19 and the lockdowns, rules and regulations it has been impossible to revisit it. The pandemic has also had a huge negative impact on Rubyz and the entertainment and hospitality sector overall. It has been incredibly difficult to entertain audiences indoors thus has ultimately resulted in a substantial loss of revenue. I do hope that Rubyz can get through these uncertain and scary times.
Sally, Foxy and Tyra made me so welcome - I fell in love with them, as well as their fabulous clothes, make-up, bling, heels, singing talents and wicked sense of humour! I really hope to go back and finish what I started. In the meantime here are some shots from last year. To find out more about Rubyz checkout @RubyzBournemouth on Facebook.
