UK drag queen Aaron Carty AKA Beyoncé Experience hiked for 7 days and climbed nearly 17,600 feet – facing freezing temperatures, snow storms, and altitude sickness – to perform at the Mount Everest base camp.
Apparently, she is the first drag queen to ever have performed there.
Carty said: “Realising it was such a difficult challenge, I had Googled to see if a drag queen had done it before.
“Not having found anything I couldn’t resist taking Beyoncé Experience with me, so it was just for fun.”
Once there, she had to get into denim hot pants in -15 C temperatures.
“Walking for four hours in the snow, to then have to take your clothes off in front of 100 people to get into drag and dance, isn’t much fun.”
Luckily the final performance was worth it, as Beyoncé Experience high-kicked and shimmied to Beyoncé’s ‘Welcome (Homecoming Live)’.
Would Carty care to repeat the experience?
He said: “Absolutely not. It’s a one time event.
“However, I do have the urge to look at where else I could take Beyonce that is quite unique…”
