Poppy Champlin is the constant in the Queer Queens rotation and has appeared on such shows as Comics Unleashed, Oprah, Comedy Central, LOGO, HBO, Showtime and more.

The third Queen to rule this stage is Mercedez Sulay, she is a Rochester entertainer and was voted Miss Gay Rochester 2014, and Miss Queen of Hearts 2012.

The Queer Queens say they are thrilled to announce their new sponsor, Sapphire Books Publishing, the premier lesbian literature publisher as well as thrilled to announce that The Gay Alliance of Rochester is on board to receive some of the proceeds from the show as well as help letting the people know. “This show is guaranteed to have you laughing ‘til it hurts. Come enjoy a delightfully painful night of laughter.”
